Hence "Gaffer tape" which is black, rather than duct tape, which is the same construction but grey.
It's a bit harder to get this style, because when people say "gaffer tape" they normally mean "duck tape, or duct tape, or anything like that".
Its my favorite tape for general use.
I currently use this one on my glass desk:
>Haha yeah I have at least ten of those... They do not work on certain glass surfaces, namely any shiny black granite desk.
That's specifically why I bought this one and it works flawlessly on every glass surface I've tried.
