Rated 1 out of 5 by LibraryTech from Lightweight Construction, Difficult to reload While I am generally satisfied with products that are distributed by Demco, I have to say the multiple roll tape dispenser is not an effective product. Its construction is from lightweight plastic, which is probably why so many reviewers emphasize a need for the weighted base. Tape edges slip from the blades that are supposed to anchor them in place, and the large dowel that holds rolls of tape is difficult to wrestle back into place when replacing spent rolls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Terri from This tape dispenser is a great organization tool. I tried it without the weighted base, it definitely needs it to keep it in place. The base and the dispenser seem highly priced to me. Could the two pieces be offered together at a lower price?

Rated 5 out of 5 by PattyK from Multiole tape dispenser I bought this last month but, buying the weighted base was the thing that makes it wonderful. I can now get tape with one hand! I had this dispenser at my last school but this time, I got smart and got a base to secure it to. Now, it is the best purchase I have made in a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Meadowlarklib from So Handy I have had these before and loved them. I didn't get the book weight due to the budget but will purchase it in the future. It makes a difference and is amazing too. Beware the razor-sharp edge--I have nicked myself and it does and excellent job cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsBr from Great Purchase! I purchased this dispenser about a month ago and it has been great. It holds multiple rolls. I strongly suggest buying the base to go with it. The base holds it down and I personally think that without the base, it wouldn't be nearly as effective. I like that I can get tape off of the dispenser using only one hand. This would not be possible without the base. It's an added expense, but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susi from Near perfect solution! I purchased this at the very end of last school year, so I have really used it more this year. This has saved me so much time over having to cut every length of tape with scissors. The only thing that could make this more perfect is if I actually had a space to screw the base to a workspace table. Have to use it at my desk, but that's ok. Still saves time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baxter from Can't imagine a library without at least one! I have 30 years of library experience and I've been using these since I began working in the library. Our library owns several and I recommend purchasing the weighted base to ensure one-handed use. It seems expensive but so worth it ergonomically and they are cost effective since they last for years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Karen416 from Not what I expected, but would work great for some It is my fault for not reading the description of this item more thoroughly. At a previous library we had one of these with a weighted base which was exactly what I wanted. When I saw the picture of this model, I just assumed that all multi-tape dispensers had weighted bases. Apparently not true. For this to work correctly, you must screw it into a table or wall. We really haven't found a good place to do that, so we have been trying to hold onto it with one hand to stabilize it while using the other hand to dispense the tape. That cancels out the functionality of being able to hold a book up to affix the tape in the exact place we need it. So, it doesn't work for us, and I haven't gotten around to checking with Demco to see if we could exchange the product for one with a weighted base; so that's really my fault also. I'm sure this is a good product--just not what I expected or needed.
