The handband version of the 3M pop-up tape strip dispenser is fantastic. When wrapping gifts, it’s hard to realize just how much you would appreciate being able to get pieces of tape in exactly the right size, every time, with one hand. The tape strips are not economical for everyday use (about $3.50 for a 3 pack of 75 strip refills), but the gift-wrapping simplification yielded from this small tool is greater than you would expect.
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
