Good to see you posting J.......I used it to hold my back scratcher together.

It is also great for dusting around the house..you know? all those little what-nots on the shelves that you have to move around..I just duct em down and take the leaf blower and let er rip taterchip..blows that dust right off and they dont even move..I got this idea from The tool man Taylor..great stuff

We used duct tape to keep the sliding glasss door ajar on the balcony. That's how we could listen to the waves roll past the ship as we sailed on in to the night. AHHH what great way to sleep.

I have neon yellow duct tape that I put on all our suitcase handles. When it's time for luggage pickup it's very, very easy to identify ours among the sea of identical black suitcases.

Oh no! For our church festival, we use rolls of duct tape to hold just about everything in place. We don't want anyone getting hurt, so there is tape everywhere, holding lights up, cords down, and my mouth closed. Sometimes I am not too tactful when I am overworked, and my DW (the chairperson) wants to use it on me.

I had forgotten the ****** and used a Popsicle stick and....Just Kidding...
We have used duct tape many times, on things such as, a rattling vent and door. A drawer knob kept coming off so I replaced it with a ball of tape. Have used it as clothespins to hang things to dry. One cruise we had been placed between bunches of extremely heavy smokers (DW can't tolerate heavy cigarette smoke). I closed that big gap under the door with tape to keep the smoke and smell to a minimum. DW threatened to use the tape on me as snore prevention.

and laughing is contagious,
here’s hoping for an epidemic!

Jake uses red duct tape on his red 91 Accura Integra to keep the rain out. Seems the windshield has developed some leakage around the edges.
Car runs great, and it's not worth a major repair job at this point in its life. Thank heavens for color coordinated duct tape!

Used in on our cruise to restick the anniversary decorations in our cabin. Sure like the popcicle stick idea though!
