Made the job a lot easier!


Easy to use and gets a perfect cut for corners. Good on DIY projects also.


Great tape cutter


I occasionally use clear packing tape at work for various tasks. I only had a regular roll that I'd cut with a pair of scissors, and fold over the end to make it easier to find the next time. Okay if you're occasionally taping up one box to ship. But then a last minute signage project came along that I needed to cut a lot of pieces of tape to assemble and it was a battle. Just after that project I found the Tadpole Tape Cutter through The Grommet email newsletter, so I ordered it. This is the perfect solution! Wish I'd had it sooner.More > < Less


So helpful!


These are fantastic. I basically want them for every roll of tape floating around the house. We keep one on some blue painter’s tape in the toolbox, one on some packing tape, and another on a roll of masking tape that I use everyday.More > < Less




It's perfect for what I need. It's easy to use, it's small enough to easily store when not in use.


Great Product!


Handy product ! Keeps tape in its place with no hastle.

About Tadpole

How to Cut Tape

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.
