How to Load a Packing Tape Dispenser: Step-by-Step Guide

If you're preparing to ship packages, you'll need to use packing tape to secure your boxes.

However, loading a tape dispenser can be a little tricky if you've never done it before. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of how to load a packing tape dispenser step by step.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials Before you start, make sure you have all the materials you need: packing tape, a tape dispenser, and your package. We recommend using a dispenser designed for the type of tape you are using, as it will make the process much easier.

Step 2: Open the Tape Dispenser To open the tape dispenser, look for a small lever or button on the side or bottom of the dispenser. Press or slide this lever to release the tape roll holder. Some dispensers may require you to remove the holder manually by pulling it out.

Step 3: Insert the Tape Roll Remove the tape roll from its packaging and insert it into the tape roll holder. Make sure that the tape is oriented correctly so that the sticky side faces down. The tape should be inserted so that it unwinds clockwise, following the arrow on the dispenser.

Step 4: Thread the Tape Through the Guide
After you have inserted the tape roll, find the tape guide on the dispenser. The tape guide is a metal or plastic plate that keeps the tape aligned as it comes out of the dispenser. Slide the tape through the guide, making sure that it is straight and not twisted.

Step 5: Attach the Tape to Your Package Once you have threaded the tape through the guide, you can begin using the dispenser to attach the tape to your package. Hold the dispenser with one hand and the package with the other. Press the tape against the box, then pull the dispenser away from the package, applying even pressure to the tape as you go.

Step 6: Cut the Tape After you have applied the tape to your package, you'll need to cut it off. Many tape dispensers have a built-in blade that you can use to cut the tape. Hold the tape dispenser at a slight angle, then run the tape over the blade to cut it. If your dispenser does not have a blade, you can use a pair of scissors to cut the tape.

Congratulations! You have now loaded and used a packing tape dispenser.

By following these steps, you can save time and effort in securing your packages for shipping. Remember to always double-check that the tape is loaded correctly before using the dispenser to avoid any mishaps.
