About the GaffGun™

Can the GaffGun™ work without cables or rope?

Yes! The GaffGun's™ optional FloorGuide allows for the effortless application of double-sided carpet tape, dance floor tape, spike tape, caution tape, etc. Using the FloorGuide, tape sticks directly to the ground—and the possibilities are endless.

Do I have to use GaffGun™ tape?

You do not have to purchase "GaffGun" tape, but you do need to purchase your tape with the orange CoreLock core system.

GaffGun does not make tape, but instead has partnered with the world's best tape companies to provide their trusted tapes onto GaffGun's CoreLock core. With every tape company having a different size diameter core, this standarized core ensures a perfect fit every time on your GaffGun.

The CoreLock core also centers the tape on the GaffGun and allows you to utilize the GaffGun’s™ tensioning system, making tape application smooth and stable.

How many cables will the GaffGun™ accept?

Due to differences in shielding and gauge, no two cables are exactly alike. That means there's no definite rule about how many cables can consistently fit within the GaffGun's™ funnel. But, we do have some guides available indicating combinations we know to work:

  • Small CableGuide: 1-2 XLR cables; 10/16" wide funnel opening; 0.7" funnel ground clearance
  • Medium CableGuide: 3-4 XLR cables; 1-1/8" wide funnel opening; 0.7" funnel ground clearance
  • Large CableGuide: 5-6 XLR cables; 1-3/8" wide funnel opening; 0.7" funnel ground clearance

On what surfaces can the GaffGun™ be used?

The GaffGun™ works on most surfaces where its wheels are able to roll. To ensure cables within the funnel of the GaffGun™, a relatively low ground clearance must be maintained. Because of this, the GaffGun™ may scrape on uneven surfaces like exposed aggregate.

Is the GaffGun™ durable?

The GaffGun™ is designed to be an industrial tool; each device is hand-assembled in our Seattle-area warehouse using heavy-duty materials, and built to last. In fact, the body of the GaffGun is made of the same material used for pulleys on deep sea fishing ships. (That means it's really tough!)

Do I have to go back after my tape run and press tape to the floor?

The GaffGun™ was weighted with your tape in mind, and designed to apply even pressure to the floor in order to save you from having to go back and adhere tape after your run is complete. However, the quality of tape being used, floor surface, floor cleanliness, and other factors can all play a part in the performance of the tape adhesion. Please: Always double-check your tape runs and ensure they are safe and secure.
