I am absolutely obsessed with these. What a wonderful product. I looked and looked for a couple of years searching for this type of item and finally found it on the Grommet! These are so easy to handle and clip on, blade is sharp and saves me and staff so much time cutting masking tape with scissors. Thank you for coming up with this and selling it at a very reasonable price! I use them for masking tape. I own a small business , an Estate Sale business, and we cut small pieces of masking tape to mark items that typical price stickers won’t stick to; garage items, baskets, towels, etc. I like a nice and clean cut look instead of tearing the tape, and this is just perfect. Thanks guys!

The only way to manage tape

I never hunt for the end of the tape and have to pick it loose from the roll or hunt a pair of scissors to cut the tape to the length I need since I bought a tadpole tape cutter. Only complaint is it’s hard to get the tadpole on the roll since the elastic bands are hard to get into their slot.
Good product

I always enjoy buying from Grommet. They always have such interesting and usable items. The tape cutter works great. No problems putting it on the tape and cuts the tape easily.

This tape cutter belongs in every toolbox or junk drawer. It takes the frustration out of paint jobs, moving, or any project that requires tape. Tadpole fits snugly on the tape roll, neatly slicing off pieces of tape evenly—and easily. Choose the right size depending on the tape you’re using. And when you’re done move tadpole to a new roll.


Ever struggled to find the end of a tape roll, or to cut off pieces? The Tadpole tape cutter will put an end to that.

This time (and sanity) saver gives you a clean, straight piece of tape every time. Its bungee-like cord attaches the blade to a roll, staying flush against the tape—like a less-bulky tape gun that’s even easier to use.

Lee Mallahan III created Tadpole after fighting to get straight pieces of painters tape for numerous glass door panes. Besides giving tape users everywhere a much-needed break, Tadpole gives back, too. It’s Made in the USA by partners from The Louisiana Association for the Blind.

Tadpole is low profile enough to keep on any roll in your toolbox or kitchen drawer—electrical, duct, masking, painters. And when one roll is finished, Tadpole goes right onto the next. Now you can stop using scissors, a box cutter, a knife—or worse, your teeth—to get a piece of tape. more Their Story
