Was in HD the other day asking about this, but nobody there seemed to know
what I was talking about.
Wasn't in the paint Dept, surprisingly.
Trying to find a roll of Double-Sticky tape with a small thickess of foam
between the two adhesive surfaces.
This would help on an uneven surface I have.
Hard to believe HD doesn't carry it, but perhaps they don't ?
Any idea what this stuff might actually be called, or what Dept in HD might
have it ?
Or anywhere else, perhaps ?
It's a common item, but unfortunately it's also common for the people
in the big box stores not to be familiar with a description of a
product. I usually Google, find out the correct name and a SKU number,
then ask customer service to search their computer and tell me where
the product is located in the store.
In your case you're looking for Double Sided Mounting Tape or Double
Sided Foam Mounting Tape.
It's also carried in most business supply stores such as Staples.
Mostly found as an impulse item near the checkouts. Also look near the
picture hooks. I don't know why!
It is still made and sold. I sometimes us it to attach blind valences when
I don't have the proper clip.
There is also a wide version that is used to install carpet. Can't recall
if it has the foam core or not.
I've always known it as double face foam tape. I think that I have seen it
at Home Depot, but I forget where. Try the aisle with the screws and
fasteners. Art supply stores would carry this and probably Wal Mart also.
Yes, all HD stores do carry it, it is called mounting tape and is in the
paint department close to the masking tape. Like any large store you are
at the mercy of the individual that is helping you at the time.
