Scotchsticks

Easy tape application.

Using scotch tape can be annoying because the dang tape sticks to your fingers while you're trying to manipulate it. Scotchsticks to the rescue!

It's a one or two-handed tape dispenser: one stick dispenses the tape with a small-core roller, almost like a roll-on deodorant; the optional and detachable second arm has a tape trowel/stylus that is used to smooth down the tape as it is rolled onto the object. The stylus has a blade on the edge that can be used for smooth tape cutting, and is also used to draw the initial piece of tape off the dispenser.

It looks like a mathematical compass, and both 'arms' can be extended as long or short as necessary, at any angle between them. Also has angle measurements and can be used as a compass in a pinch.

Comes with coupon good for 20% off your next purchase of the REAL Staple Gun.

       I don't see what the point of the extensible arm is. The thing that gets cut off is usually on the far side of the blade, away from the roller; so lengthening the distance between roller and tape doesn't really do anything. What do I miss?

       Sadly, I was expecting something along the lines of glow sticks that you could drink..

       I was imagining something along the lines of a bread stick sized haggis snack, though I do like the drinkable scotch glowstick.

       UnaBubba, if you combined a sword stick with a scotch whiskey cane, you could stab someone without fear of causing an infection.
