ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Alien Tape is a multifunctional, double-sided, reusable tape that says it can be used for almost anything. The box says it’s waterproof, can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Luckily, we had some framed art from local artists that needed to be hung up in our conference room.

I applied two strips to the back of one picture frame. The tape itself is pretty thick and sticky, so it’s a little hard to cut through.

After removing the backing of the tape, I picked my placement and stuck the frame to the wall. Making sure to press the top and bottom firmly, the frame felt like it was securely attached to the wall!

I tested it on a few more frames to make sure that the result was the same. After hanging up the second frame, the 10-foot roll was about halfway gone.

An important note in the directions said the product should be placed permanently on painted walls but could be removed by spraying water on the edges of the tape.

If you were to reuse the tape, the directions say that rinsing it with water and allowing it to dry is all that it takes to restore its original stickiness.

Even though we weren’t able to use it on any outdoor surfaces or test its reusability, the tape was easy to use and successfully and securely hung the frames on the walls.

Alien Tape, you pass the Does It Work test!
