I personally prefer gaffer's tape. As good as duct tape but it does not leave a residue after it has been in place for a while.

It does stick great but be careful. I pulled the finish off my hardwood floor when I used it to hold a temporary carpet runner for a party. Had to use a hair dryer to get it up without further damage.

Carl, I would suspect something amiss with the finish on the floor. There is no way that gaffers tape should pull the finish off. Was it a site finish, or pre-finished?

Yes sir. A tip I learned from Jon.

Prefinished. Highly rated tape from amazon. Stuck like crazy.

Gaffer tape, not Duck Tape, will not stick like crazy. You can even stick it to itself, sticky to sticky, and easily separate it.
It's used in TV and movies and in photo studios to tape down cords etc. so people don't trip over them.
I did manage to damage some wallpaper once by ripping the tape off the wall instead of peeling it back slowly.

Allstar Performance ALL14253 Black 2" x 165' Gaffer's Tape

This is the stuff. Pulled straight off. Later pulled at an angle after warming it up and it was ok.
