Carpet Tape

Carpet tape is actually uncoated double-sided duct tape, used to stick rugs down, or anywhere you need to stick stuff to other stuff. This roll is 1-1/2" wide x 42 feet long on a 3" core. Beige-ish color, after the backing is peeled off, but it really doesn't matter, since you won't see it (unless you make a prom dress out of it, but then you wouldn't be able to get out of the limo).
