The Glory of a Tape Gun

December 9, 2014

Yes, we’re aware that’s rather a dramatic title for an essentially very undramatic item. Although, we reckon if you have ever used a tape gun you’ll know why we chose that title – and you probably agree with it too.

You see here’s the thing. When you move into a self-storage unit you’re likely going to have boxes – lots of boxes – to move. If you want to store things properly you’re going to need to get some decent boxes rather than re-using old and battered ones. That means making the boxes up, and once you’ve done one or two of them with a large roll of tape and nothing but your hands to complete the job, you’re going to wish there was an easier way to do things.

Fortunately, there is, and that’s where the tape gun comes in. Seriously, once you have loaded a roll of packing tape into the gun and had a couple of goes with it, you’ll wonder what you ever did without it. You can have a whole collection of boxes made up and ready to pack in a fraction of the time it takes you to do one or two by hand. Now, what could be easier than that?

Actually, one thing could be easier – and that’s sealing the boxes up again if you’re not planning on opening them for a while. Grab your trusty tape gun, fold the flaps of the box inwards, whack the gun over the top of them and you’ll have them taped up in a jiffy. And thanks to the serrated edge it automatically cuts the tape off in just the right place too.

Now we’re guessing you probably want one of these guns and the tape to go with it. Not a problem – you’ll find them to buy on our website with our discounted click and collect price. That way, when you arrive at your local Lok nStore facility next time you have some boxes to store, you’ll be ready to get the entire job done more easily than ever.

And since you’ll probably want to get your storage solutions sorted out as quickly and easily as possible, you may well wonder why you never thought to get a tape gun sooner. Still, at least once you have one, getting those boxes organised will be a simple matter of forming, taping, and closing. Job done.
