Striped Electrical Tape Makes It Easy To Find The Starting Edge

How many laps of a roll of tape do you usually need to find the starting edge with your fingernail? Three? Four? You won’t even need fingernails with with this clever roll of electrical tape that features a wavy double-stripe pattern making the starting edge impossible to miss — all you need to do is spot the break in the stripes.

Cleverly called ‘The End Is in Sight’ these rolls cost just shy of four bucks for a pack of three, which equates to 60m of tape. And this double-stripe technique would seemingly work just as well on masking tape, painter’s tape, packing tape, even duct tape. Although, for the clear Scotch tape you use to wrap a presents that you want to seem invisible, you’ll probably want to stick with a dispenser instead. [American Science & Surplus via bookofjoe]
