I was introduced to Hugo's Amazing Tape several years ago by a colleague. He uses the tape to keep board game boxes closed for storage, and it has quite a following in the board game and collectible card game community.
The tape is flexible, reusable, and has the fantastic quality of only sticking to itself. These qualities make it ideal for securing something that you need to wrap and unwrap repeatedly. Hugo's Amazing Tape is available in rolls of various lengths & widths, allowing the user to cut a length to fit their needs.
I have found many household uses for Hugo's Amazing Tape. I have used the tape as a sort of clamp, to secure oddly shaped objects together while glue dries. I have used it to secure small parts within an assembly to prevent them from falling out of place during storage. It is also perfect for securing rolls of gift wrapping paper, and for securing spools of thread, twine, or rope. I've also used it on all of my board game and puzzle boxes. Hugo's Amazing Tape won't leave sticky residue, and it doesn't bind, crush, or decay like a rubber band. It is an indispensable addition to my household tool box. — Ryan Gwaltney
