This product is free when added to any bias lighting order (add your bias light to the shopping cart and you will see the option to add it for free). If the number of rolls of free tape ordered exceeds the number of bias lights ordered, the quantity will be reduced to the number of lights ordered.

We ship our products to home theater aficionados around the world, but our roots are in the film and post-production community.

And one tool that is very popular in film and TV is gaffer tape, yet it's not something that a lot of home users have lying around.

Think of it as duct tape's lesser-known cousin. It sticks to nearly any surface and comes off without leaving a sticky residue.* (However, great care should be taken with painted walls -- it is NOT like command strips and can remove loose paint). However, you can use it to attach your bias lights to your display and use the leftover for cable management.

*Gaffer tape can leave a dry (not sticky) residue line along some edges and after a really long time. This can easily be removed with another piece of tape. 

Here's how to use it:

Don't peel the red backing off your MediaLight or LX1, but use a 2" strip of mini-gaffer tape between every 3 or 4 LEDs (every 6 inches or so). 1” long strips are not long enough -- and some resistant surfaces not yet encountered might require additional strips of tape.

If you are like us, you obsess over every detail, including how cleanly you will be able to remove your bias lights in the future. Will it leave a residue? Will the lights be difficult to remove? If these are things that go through your head, add a free roll of mini-gaffer tape to your order and stop worrying. 

You'll notice that we charge $3.50 for our mini-gaffer tape. This includes shipping. However, add it to any bias light order and it's free of charge.

Please note: This is a custom MINI-ROLL, so while it almost appears to be to the scale of a large roll (about the size of a roll of duct tape), this roll is only 1" wide and 10 yards long. It's perfect for attaching bias lights, for managing cables, and small enough to carry around in your laptop case. Gaffer tape rules, and we're excited to offer it for free as another installation benefit.

Alternatively, you can find gaffer tape for between $8-$20 online for a 2" wide 30 yard roll. We made these custom rolls so that we could slip them into orders without driving up shipping costs and because they are more convenient to carry around than huge rolls.

Tape didn’t work for this

The bias lighting was great, but the LX1 lighting strip would not stick to the tape, so I removed the tape and stuck it directly on the tv. It’s nice tape, but it does not work for the intended purpose.

MediaLight Bias Lighting

The tape is designed for this purpose so this review is a bit unusual to us. Hundreds of people have already used Mini-Gaff without any problems. Naturally, we are curious to know a bit more about your installation because we have no other cases to compare it to.

Mini-gaff Gaffer Tape

Used it to hold down my LX1 lights. Very easy to use and sticks well. Bonus: I have plenty left over for the next time I need gaffer tape.
