96% of 100

Use nylo-tape on wooden drawers, drawer slides and the sliding surfaces of your machinery to provide friction-free glide and to reduce wear and tear on wooden components. Made from a low-friction nylon polymer, Nylo-Tape is both self-adhesive and self-lubricating. Used strategically, a little bit of Nylo-Tape can go a long way. Available in several widths; use the narrower widths for drawers, and the widest widths for stationary machine fences, tables, jigs and fixtures.


Features:

  • Provides smooth sliding action in just seconds
  • Easy installation with convenient peel-and-stick backing
  • Durable, no-maintenance solution—requires no lubrication
  • Prevents irreversible wear to wooden components
(1) Roll of Nylo-Tape Friction-Free Drawer Slide Tape

This stuff is great!
I have wood on wood drawers that were a pain in the toosh to open; I used this tape along all the points where the drawers and cabinets touched, and I barely have to pull on the drawer to open it now, it’s so smooth! And no sawdust stuff in my pots and pans below!

Makes drawers slide like a charm
I ordered this in 2007 for some drawers that my husband made.It worked extremely well.I just ordered a roll for an antique desk that has a drawer which doesn't want to slide very well.If it works as good as the other rolls I bought ,i will be extremely satisfied.The tape stuck securely and has never come off.We use the drawers every day.

Old drawers--this looked like the easiest potential fix. reviews and answers to questions were helpful in figuring out how to use them in a quirky situation. Would be good enough.Also can think it would be handy addition to my tool box--anticipate other applications that might come up.

Drawers sticking on old dresser
Catherine M on Jul 19, 2018
How many drawers will one roll of tape cover on average?
Gail C on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It would be more accurate to measure your drawers to know the length of tape you will need. What I can say is that I did 3 kitchen drawers that I open and close often and the tape has held up well.
Is it possible to use the tape for metal surfaces (steel)?
Andrzej1 on Jan 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes as long as the surface is clean and oil free
Will this tape work on the fence of a table saw?
SHADOW on Jan 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is narrow so I am not sure if it would help. Works great on my drawers.
Has anyone had this tape in use now for a few years? I would like to know how durable it is.
Ernest on Jul 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I’ve used tow tape multiple times. I consider myself an intermediate level woodworker. I built a chess board with storages fir the chess pieces under the board. The drawers don’t get a great deal of use, but I see no wear on the tape. Additionally, my impression of the tape was that it was sufficiently thick and strong to be sufficiently durable for any of my projects. Hope this helps a little.
Trying to figure out how much tape to buy. Using on drawers that are wood on wood. Does the tape need to be on the drawer and the inside of cabinet or just on the drawer?
Jacci C on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I also used it on wood on wood drawers. I put it only on the inside of the cabinet and It worked pretty welll. I'm not sure if that's how it's meant to work as it doesn't come with any guidelines.
Need for a wrought iron curtain rod to help the rings slide. Is the tape white or clear? Thanks
Charles H on Oct 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s opaque. Definitely not clear.
Do you put the tape on the wood drawer and inside on the wood runner?
Janine L on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I put the tape on runners , but you could do either. Do not do both..
I need a six inch diameter of this material to use as a glide for a lazy Susan. The ball bearing lazy Susan is too fluid. Anything like this tape available in a sheet form?
R B on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We don't carry this in a sheet form. I don't know if it exist.
should tape be applied to both the drawer and the runner?
Gary W on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Gary, You don't need to apply the tape to both drawer and runner as long as the piece without tape is sanded nice and smooth with fine-grained sand paper. It will even tolerate some play between drawer and runner without getting wedged (jammed) as long as there is no wood-on-wood contact. Of course, you don't want to have too much play between drawer and runner. --- Frank
Will this tape work to protect the inside of a cupboard door from the slide out trash bin which has scratched the surface?
BOB M on Oct 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It would be worth trying. I have used it on my cupboard drawers (after the friction had ground up piles of sawdust). The tape solved the problem and has lasted over two years with no need to reapply the tape. My drawer surfaces are wood-on-wood, if that makes sense.
Tack in drawer glides do they tack into the bottom of the drawer ?
Brook P on Mar 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brook,
No need to tack it in. The product is friction-free surface on the top and a sticky surface on the bottom. After you cut off a length for a drawer guide, you peel off the white layer on the bottom side of the tape, which exposes the sticky surface. Just press it onto the guide, but try to get it correctly centered the first time you lay it down. Good luck.
Would this work on a sliding cabinet door?
Nancy F on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I think you can use it on any wood to wood interface where one piece slides over another piece. Should be fine on sliding cabinet doors and would mount it on the stationary piece rather then the moving piece.
Will tape work to restore height on worn wood runner boards that drawer slides in and out on? These boards slope down about 1/8inch now from friction. Front of drawer catches on horizontal face board. Must lift drawer to completely close. No room for metal slides or center runner.
r j on Nov 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The tape might work, but you may have to use more than one layer to get the right adjustment.
If I needed to remove the tape from a finished wood surface at a later date, with the adhesive damage the Finish? My application is adding drawers to finished cubbies on a wine bar. If I ever wanted to revert back to the Cubbies, I'm just wondering if the tape would damage them.
Stephanie K on Oct 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would apply the tape to the drawer bottom. With the tape on the bar the sag in the drawer would show wear on the bar. A good wax should then protect the bar.
All the reviews are for drawer installs. Has anyone used this on sliding miters for table saws and such?
Bret R on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Do not know, but should work.
I would like to use this on the top of a drapery rod to enhance the movement of grommets or rings. Can it be used for that?
PAT D on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It might work. This tape is made to go on a flat surface, but I believe it might also on a slight curved surface too. It would be worth a try.
