Well which one is correct ? I was in MFI today and they label it "duck". I always thought it was "duct". I dont think I will sleep tonight.

Don't panic! it's both, Duck tape is a brand name of Duct tape.

Same as most people calling a vacuum cleaner, a Hoover.

Sweet dreams. :)

For me the name I use depends upon what I am applying it to. If I were taping up a duct then I would call it Duct Tape, if on the other hand... :twisted:

Don't buy 'Duck' tape as the store will stick you with a large bill :P

Withers, you know, "Lovely Day"...............the longest single sung note on a record.
Dreadful record by the way!

Sorry Mick, according to the weather man, we are in for a rough ride weather-wise this week :(

I've found this old photo out that I took of some ducks, when the wind kept blowing its feathers on its head (the middle one), it had a proper bouffant. :lol:

That's what duck tape is for!
