A file cabinet and / or a plastic / rubber storage bin
up difficult to remove tape residue
if you use packers tape with the sticky side down
to double secure its latched cover for moving.
Instead, stand the bin on its short side and secure it by reverse winding the packing tape (sticky side out first - not allowing the sticky side to touch the bin's finish).
Then, make the second tape pass in the regular way (turning the tape back over) - in effect welding the two sticky surfaces together as is shown in the picture above. This makes both sides of the tape nonsticky (somewhat like creating a tape strap, so to speak).
Using this technique the tape is tightly wound around the bin so that it won't slip off and so that the latched top is secured without leaving sticky tape residue on it. If you don't quite weld the two sides evenly then just twist the tape to do so. If that doesn't work use another piece of tape to patch up over and around the twisted part that has exposed residue. This tape strap removes easily after your done moving the bin by a simple cut.
When reverse wound taping has been done properly,
the mover gripping the bin is not exposed to the sticky side
to irritate him by making his hands sticky.
