The first 1" of tape folded over on itself to make a 1/2" 'appendage'. This allows one to easily remove the tape at strike or load-out, or for repositioning. Most often used with gaffer's tape when taping or labelling connectors, but can and should be used anytime (everytime) tape must be easily removed. Saves technicians from ruining their manicures. When taping stagepin (2P&G) connectors, tear off about a 6" piece of gaffer's tape, and fold each end over to create a 1/2" tab on each end, then place the tape in line with the connectors. Note that if the male pins fit loosely in the female connector, the pins should be split using a pin splitter or knife before taping. For round connectors, tape around the circumference of the connector.
