Tape Separator Tool

Tape Separator Tool

Video (1)
Reviews (12)
  • One Brother P-Touch tape separator
  • Tool for helping to remove the TZ, TX & TC type label tape from the backing paper. Recommended item.

This handy little tool is cheap and easy to use. It is used for separating the laminated tape from the backing paper.

Ideal for users with limited finger movement or when hands are cold.   The tape tool is easy to use, there is a nack to using this but it will save time and make removing the label from the backing much easier.

Instructions For Use

1) Simply insert about 30-50mm of the tape into the slot of the tape tool.
2) Rotate the tool about 180 degrees and pull the tape through the tool.

This will cause the tape to lift from the backing paper allowing its easy removal.

See it demonstrated click the Video tab above

Please note that this tape tool is designed for use with Brother TZ, TC & TX type laminated tapes only.

5 stars Tape separator tool Written by

This is really good and so easy to use just wish the labelling machine had somewhere to attach the tape separator tool to it

5 stars Great little tool Written by

Really handy piece of kit for separating the backing from the label - such a fiddly job for those with no nails!

5 stars Great work Written by

I was astounded by the speed of delivery - less than 24 hours from on-line order the item was on my doorstep. well done. really enjoy using our products.

1 stars Did not need to use - Tapes worked so well without it. Written by

The backing paper is very easy to remove using finger nail - no need for this tool at all.

LabelZone Comment:  Great to hear that you were able to remove the backing paper ok and that the crack back design on the backing paper is working.   In some commercial situations where users may have cold hands or limited mobility in their fingers the tape tool should help too.

5 stars tape separator tool Written by

I have been using a brother machine for some years and just come across this tool which is ideal for separating the tape from the backing. Better than using a razor blade which I used to resort to.

4 stars Does what its says Written by

After figuring out you put tape through the loop and turn 180 degrees works fine. Only proble is you cant use it with small lengths of tape.

5 stars Great item Written by

Its so simple to use, lost the one that came inside the label machine so this is a replacement. I don't know how to separate the tape without it..

3 stars Tape Separator tool Written by

A useless bit of kit until you've watched the video!! Then OK particularly if you've just cut your fingernails!

1 stars Tape separator tool Written by
I found the tool not very helpful it did not seem to do the job of seperating the backing paper also a diagram would have helpful
4 stars Tool Separator Written by

I previously sent a review on this product. Since then I have watched the video on how to use it and it does seem straight forward.

1 stars Tape Separator Written by

Received thhis tool along with the label machine but there were no instructions on how to use it so I have just put it in a drawer!! Waste of money.

5 stars Simple but works Written by

Very simple tool which works well - will probably lose it as there's no place to put it in the labeller but worth it while it lasts!
