So upset with Frog Tape


Okay, now that everyone has had a little fun with this, a serious question...


Have any of you used Frog Tape? Is it okay? Good? Excellent? Worth the money?


I've seen it, and been somewhat interested, but not interested enough to buy it and try it.

Since our store started selling it in late 2007, it's sold very well here.

Complaints over the years..................????
I've been thinking a while, and still haven't thought of any!

The moron OP's foreclosure homes paint was probably ready to fall off anyway...as some here have said.
Packaging has always stated not to use on paint less than 2 weeks old, because FT has a "moderate" stick-level.

Cool, that's good to know.

And yeah, the OP undoubtedly had molding that had been painted without being primed. Otherwise the paint wouldn't come off in chunks like that.

so what happened to the OP? haven't heard much since that first post, seems like they didn't like the feedback.

Too bad, could have made for an interesting discussion on painters tape and lawsuits.

moulding, is how I would spell it, now weither that is correct or not?
frog tape works well for what it was ( is) intended for, to me the regular blue painters tape works almost as well a whole lot cheaper.

I certainly had to have a good reason to use tape. Between baseboards and carpeting was one. Painting stripes, arches, shapes or something or another. I seldom taped between wall and trim. Just slowed me down.

Any tape will pull a poor trim job away. I have actually had good luck with Frog tape when I have used it but have no complaints against 3M either. As mentioned, I never used much.

The worst part of our foolishly litigious society is that it just jacks the prices on things up. I tried to pursue engineering and a patent on an improvement on a system for painting stairwells. I backed away because something like 78 percent of the cost of ladder system products goes directly to litigation expenses.

I am not saying there should not be avenues for legal remedies for serious things but not for obvious user fails. If the coffee is so hot it is hard to hold the cup with two layers of insulation while you unwrap the 600 calorie breakfast sandwich for the five year old? You probably should not be sipping it while laying out frog tape over modeling.

Yeah I think people sometimes put too much emphasis on product and not enough on technique. You can buy the best paint in the store, but if you don't prep and put it on properly, you won't be happy. This doesn't mean the paint failed.

personally I use the blue tape when I need to tape something off. Only time i've seen tape cause an issue was when it was left on for too long, and is hard to get off.

I've had masking tape pull of paint. But in my case it was fine - even good. It pulled paint off of old oak woodwork that had been painted over, and I was going to strip and redo anyway. The wood hadn't been primed. Just paint on top of the old oak varnish.

So in a weird way, the paint pulling off the paint was a very good thing.

yeah, i can see that happening.

sometimes it is what it is, and you just have to put in the work to make the place look nice. Good to paint trim at the same time I guess, so works out fine in the end hey.

Tape is a crutch, learn how to paint without it. I just happen to have a great tutorial on painting without using tape. Very entertaining thread, thanks for the laugh. I wonder if she'll be back since she didn't get the shoulder she was looking to cry on.
PS, I posted before I realized there was a whole second page to the thread. I might sue if I said something embarrasing, as there should be more notice, something more prominent than a little number in the corner to notify me. There should be a pop up to notify me that I'm posting prematurely. I might get sued by OP for emotional distress caused by my callous remarks. Why don't we all sue, we can have a class action suit.
