Although you've been able to buy grip tape at your local skate shop or hardware store for years, it's never really been on my mind when I've stopped in. Now that it's carried at IKEA in an inexpensively priced roll, well, I'm all over that. Now, I've never been the person to insist on safety first. I can be found standing on my rolling office chair in order to replace a light bulb or stacking books under a stepstool that isn't quite high enough, but when I saw this cute roll of grip tape I thought it looked like a good idea.
In the past I've had many run ins with my BEKVAM stepstool being a little slick from years of continuous use. This roll of grip tape was only a few dollars and was more than enough to deck out this stool and could have done another with ease. It sticks on contact and glams things up with some bold black lines. Have you tried it out yet?
