Which Double-Sided Mounting Tape is Best? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 16 September 2019
  • Double-sided mounting tape tested: LLPT, 3M VHB, Duck, Gorilla, Gorilla Clear, T-REX, Loctite, XFasten, and FixPro. Most brands purchased on Amazon. Loctite and Duck were the only 3/4 inch tapes. All other tapes were 1 inch. Thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support. It helps a lot! https://www.patreon.com/projectfarm

    Not surprised YT recommended this one to me after the painters tape one from yesterday. What I would have liked to have seen was a weight attached matching their rated weight and then left alone. The testing methods here are great but how long will the #1 tape actually hold vs the lowest rated one?100lbs doesn’t mean much if it let’s go of a 20lb weight in a day vs weeks for a lower performing tape with the same weight. Especially considering many advertise as being permanent.

    Much require a suggestion. What should I use to attach the very outer metal frame, where brand name is put, square frame has come out from the microwave door where branding is put. This is Panasonic Dimension 4 turbo bake 1000W oven.

    Keep up the great videos...I seem to need stuff lately that PF has done a test. Again, though, I have issue with the test methodology, focusing on brand versus tape type, just like your test focusing on brand of duct tape instead of comparing same or nearly similar duct tape types (e.g. 17mil to 17mil rather than 17mil vs 5mil). In particular 3M VHB. As you noted about some of the tapes not performing as well on porous wood material, 3M VHB is not intended for porous wood. If you are using porous wood, then it needs to be sealed for 3M VHB to work properly. 3M VHB also needs the surfaces to be prepared correctly, cleaning with 50:50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and water before applying the tape (and/or using primer depending on which VHB). Wrong application and preparation are two reasons why people end up believing 3M VHB isn't good tape. The stuff literally is like a weld when used/applied correctly.

    I would have loved to see samples with mixed products, like painted wood and plastic. To see how it would work with walls in the home. (Picture hanging for example) I am looking into this, since my landlord doesn't want us using screws on the walls. Still a very informative video. Thank you!

    The amount of work that goes into your tests is amazing. A delight to watch.Edit: I also watch Scotty Kilmer, and you are proof one can speak loud and clear without flaying your arms. Scotty makes at least 50 virtual balloon animals in the same time span.

    I would giving this a try and use a vice to smash the 2 pieces to gather to get a maximin contact meshing and see if you get a different result also let them sit for a day sounds weard but the bond is beter. I have multiple times I used immense pressure on the 2 different contact surfaces this caused a near-permanent bond! and I use the 3M Scotch 1 in. x 11.1 yds. Permanent Double Sided Extreme Mounting Tape 30LBS per 1 X 1 inch and it is pretty permanent Id say a hole roled could probably lift a car. And this stuff just at home depot lol I usually mess up what is put it on when trying to remove it. But This is a very good video I thuroly enjoy your break downs and test. I would be more than happy to buy you a role of this tape I use to test for your self.

    Great video, do you think heat would affect them universally? I plan to use it it my car and want to maintain the bond when it heats up in the summer.

    Could you consider testing different shingle brands? And if hand nailed shingles hold better than using a nail gun? Atlas, GAF, Owen's, CertainTeed.

    I was just curious on 3m strength, glad to see your test. Debating 3m or gorilla. Llp might be overkill to use on my car. But it is cheaper, and stronger. Curious on if it's weatherproof.

    I would want to have made the edges of your 2x4s flat by running them thru a planer before you put the tape on. I suspect much of your variability might come from the quality of the mating surfaces.

    I’m wondering if a more meaningful result would be yielded if a more uniform surface ( tile, glass ?) was used in addition to wood.

    Your shear strenght test is flawed tho because for example pitting the hook at the end of the test piece like that introduces torque to it. Thats why you see it loosen at the bottom every time first. If ur gonna do it again then pull as close at the test area as possible amd pit supports around it so it cant turn like that

    I bought the 3m off wish before and nothing will compare to how well it held a light strip on the front of my 4wheeler, and after 2 years when I took it off it was tough but didnt leave any sort of mess.

    The proper way to use this stuff is to have a advise promoter And needs at least 15lbs of force when applying this tape for the best results

    Woodworkers frequently use double-sided tape for temporary holds while working on a piece or for test fits and mockups. For that reason it would have been nice to see something about ease of removal and residue. Good vid otherwise.

    Wow. I'm surprised to see Gorilla down there so far. I have a roll I use here and there and holy shit I have trouble taking stuff apart that's held together like that. Taped a power strip to the back of my desk to keep it off the floor and it took me forever to get that thing back off. I can't imagine I'd ever get it off with 3M tape lol
