Turn your Sharpie into a Gaff Tape Dispense

Ever find yourself on-location without that huge roll of gaffers tape and need a small piece to fix that annoying lav mic cable sneaking out from under the hosts jacket?  Try wrapping 4-5 feet of tape around a Sharpie - you've instantly created a small roll of tape, that will keep its adhesive quality for quite some time.  It's easier if you have an assistant help wind the tape onto the pen.

I always keep one in my audio mixer bag and personal tool kit.
