Handy Items Week: Hockey Tape

Cait and her fiancé  iPM will be on a whirlwind tour of St. John’s this week, so the Pie and I will be playing host and tour guide while they’re here.

To keep you entertained until they get out of our hair and I can give you your own personal tour of my city, I’m giving you eight days of gadgets that I cannot live without.

Let me introduce you to this cheap and effective adhesive, if you are not already acquainted.

Hockey tape is used by athletes to hold up the stockings that cover their shin pads so they don’t slip down during play.

But it’s far more useful than that.

Hockey tape rips easily in your hands and sticks to stuff like you wouldn’t believe, including fabric and itself.

It’s designed to come off easily in the short term, so you can even stick things to glass with it and not worry about a gummy residue left behind.

You can pick it up in packages of 6 rolls from Canadian Tire or any athletic store (in Canada at least) for cheap.
