About the manual adhesive dispenser

Manual tape dispensers are made for light-duty, decorations works and crafting, whether it's for scrapbooking, wrapping gifts or carton sealing tape. These types of applicators are mainly designed to be used with one hand only. This way, the other hand is free to hold the cardboard or carton firmly by aligning the flaps when closing them. Box sealing tools like the well-known hand-held reel applicator, when used at high speed and repetitively, increases the risk of MSD.

The use of a manual tape applicator avoids the risk of cuts, injuries or work accidents.
