Hand held tape dispensers are widely used in packaging and shipping departments and are available in two or three inch widths. PVC tape guns are fast and convenient for small mom and pop businesses. 1 case contains 24 tape dispensers.
Not all tape dispensers are equal. Some are mostly plastic with a very thin metal frame and hard plastic roller and they bend or break. Others include soft handles, all steel construction, and softer rubber rub down rollers. Basically, you get what you pay for, and the 239 model is the best.
The 239 offers thicker steel, a better comfort grip, soft rub down roller, deluxe core holder, and easier feeding path.
