A Few Uses For Retro Reflective Conspicuity Tape

Posted on: 31 July 2018

The next time you are in a hardware store, you may want to grab a couple of rolls of retro reflective conspicuity tape. This just happens to be one of those things that can come in quite handy in a number of circumstances, but you wouldn't generally think of using unless you happen to already have some. Here are just a few uses for this tape that will make you glad you bought it.

Hunting and Fishing

Toss a roll of retro reflective conspicuity tape in your tackle box or hunting gear. You can place a strip of it on a tree or on the bottom of a hunting stand to keep track of where your things are, even in the dark. Set up your gear, place the tape, and then feel free to walk around where necessary. When you need to find your stuff, shine a flashlight around and it will reflect off the tape, showing you where your gear is.


This tape is great for on bicycles, scooters, and go-carts. Place a few strips on the sides, front, and back, and your vehicle will be much more visible. This can be especially handy during dusk and after dark when others may not see you on the side of the street. This tape may just save your life. Don't forget to put some on your boats and personal watercraft too. If you drive down dark country roads frequently, it would not hurt to have a couple strips of tape on your fenders.


Having a strip of conspicuity tape on your cap, sneakers, or the shirt or jacket you wear during sporting events can keep you from injuries. While most sporting areas are lighted after dark, it is possible for a bulb to pop or some other accident to occur that causes the lights to go out briefly. If you like to run or jog at night, be sure to have this tape on you so you can be seen. You can also put the tape on balls and other gear so it can be seen well.

House Numbers

Use this tape on mailboxes or the front of your house to make it easier to find in the dark. You may also want to have strips of it on the curb indicating where your driveway is. This will be very helpful for delivery people and new friends.

Retro reflective conspicuity tape makes sure you are seen when you would not be otherwise. Its uses are pretty much unlimited.
