Gorilla tape is, by far, the best in my book. I was working on a machine a couple of months ago that has reed switches on an air cylinder for position. The cylinder is in a spot where you have to crawl inside the machine, lay down reach around a corner and work blind to adjust the switch. The switch mounts on the cylinder and is locked down by a set screw, which some moron has stripped. I cleaned the cylinder with a rag, adjusted the switch, and threw a couple of layers of gorilla tape on it to get through the shift.

That was a couple of months ago with no problems since. Heck, my boss won't let me fix it. He wants to wait until the cylinder goes bad!
