During a recent remodel, I purchased several rolls of 3M electrical tape. I used it to wrap around all new switches and outlets I installed. That was 2 months ago and already the tape is pulling away from the switches and outlets. I've never had this problem before. What is the best electrical tape to use?

Thanks in Advance,

3M SUPER 33+ <-- that is the best kind of 3M I have ever found. Just my $.02. Good luck.

Cut the tape. Don't stretch it to break it. It will always shrink back when you stretch it and the stretched part won't stick.
