A new issue of my favorite magazine — This Old House — showed up in my mailbox today, and among the many great articles was a blurb about something that’ll make Red Green do a double-take; a roll of duct tape that’s a full 12 inches wide.
Tyco Adhesives is now producing Big Fix duct tape for those repairs that a puny 2” wide roll just can’t handle. And I’m sure that in time it’ll be used for a lot more than just repairs; it ought to add at least a couple of chapters to what’s already been written about the many uses of duct tape.
One drawback is the cost; at $25 for a 30-foot roll (includes a paper release liner to make it easier to apply, and a handy cutting tool), I don’t know that we’ll be seeing it used as far & wide as the narrower version, at least not until the idea catches on (if it catches on) and the price drops a bit.
Like Red says, if the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
