Good heavens... I've always trouble with my ATG gun (the tape would come off the roller head). After watching your video, I realized I had the tape in the gun incorrectly. Thanks for setting me straight!

Kim Hudson said...

Thanks for the video! I wish I had this two days ago when I was wrestling with my brand new PINK ATG gun! I will def come and watch this video for reference the next time I have to change out the tape!

Angela said...

I would really like to get the pink ATG gun. After watching your video I have a question. Do the rollers ever get sticky & need cleaned since the adhesive side rolls on one of the rollers?

Thanks for the video.

Thanks for the video. I am going to re-load mine and hopefully it will stop breaking all the time. lol

Jenny said...

Hi Karlee. Thank you so much for this video. I've had my ATG gun for about a year. I tried to load it and I couldn't get it to work. I wasn't putting the tape into the little slats. I got upset and gave up. LOL. Thanks to you, I can load my ATG and use it. Thank you again. Take care, Jenny :)

Jen said...

Hey Karlee!!! Thanks SO much for this video! I just got my PINK Atg on Tuesday and I had an awful time getting the tape put in. I am glad I can use your video for reference!

great tips, just got the pink one in the mail yesterday, and my 752 was used so I never had good instructions with it :)Thanks

Sherri said...

Thanks SOOOOOOOOO much Karlee!!! I haven't had to refill mine yet and was wondering how to do it :)

Patti said...

Karlee, I sure wish I had seen that yesterday. I just received my pink ATG gun and was trying to load it. Got my husband to help me. I will probably come back to this video if I have problems when I need to reload.

Thanks for the instructions.

Thanks for showing us how to load our ATG. I just recieved my new Pink ATG and it was reassuring to see that I did do it correctly.

Thanks for the video. I still haven't found an ATG for myself! SOmeday!!!

Nicole said...

Thanks for the video! It is so much nicer than the one that I watched from the company I bought the gun from. I actually just saw the pink one at my local Michael's.

LoriU said...

Thanks Karlee! This was great...I realized I was attaching the tape leader strip the wrong way to the second black roller thingie!!

Lalia said...

Thank you thank you Thank you!!!! I bought my pink ATG at M's yesterday and was having trouble. The whole time I was thinking, I wonder if MPS has a video? Thanks for your video. And sure enough, I had loaded it wrong.

Thanks Karlee - I always think it is easier to watch some than try to follow the silly printed directions.

Kim H said...

NEVER, NEVER, and I mean NEVER take this video off! Everytime I have to reload mine it is a 45 minute ordeal! LOl. I usually have my husband do it, but I can't seem to get him up at 2 am! Lol. Or I call my SIL and she talks me thru it!

This was very helpful. I had an awful time when I first got my ATG, hence my blog name tangled tape!!!!

Teri A said...

This was and should be very helpful you know I never load my guy I have to have my hubby load mine. I will try the next and watch your video and see if I can do it by myself. I hope

Thanks,

Teri

MaryJo said...

Thank you Karlee, I just got my new pink gun and you just helped me load it.

Kim H said...

Okay Karlee! I already left a comment before about the video but I have to leave another one! As I said before NEVER, NEVER and I mean NEVER take this off. I just ran out of tape on my gun and immediately ran over to the computer and watched your video! Yes 2 minutes flat, verses 45 minutes later!
THANK YOU!

Hi, Karlee,
First time I have visited your blog. I received my ATG gun the first of August and had a very hard time opening it. But, I did, and the loading was easy. But thanks to your video, I am sure now that I did it right.It does work like butter and I had to touch the sticky part to be sure it worked. I love it. Thanks again.

Thanks for this video. I just got my new pink atg gun and was struggling with the enclosed instructions when it said, "Rub tape at applying roller until adhesive breaks." I didn't bother doing it in the end, and it worked fine. I watched your video to see if you were going to do that, and you did it the way I did it. So I know all is fine.

I just bought the new pink ribbon one and had not put the refill in yet. You just saved me alot of time and headache! Thank you!!!

Haidee said...

Just did mine & watch this again to make sure I did it correct I did.!!!!

Debra said...

Yes, YES it did! Thanks!

Thank you so much for this video. I watched it last week, the timing was perfect, since I had just ordered my pink atg gun. When I got it today, I went right to your video before i tried doing anything with it. You made it look so easy and it was, once I was able to get it open, boy that was a job. Arthritis in hands, but got it. Thanks again. I am now a follower of your blog, anymore great tips we are always anxious to see.

Thanks Karlee. I just received my pink ATG gun today and after reading all of the comments from your video I didn't even look at the instructions that came with it. After watching your video loading it was easy. Thanks so much for posting this video!

Very cool. I just bought my first ATG and this made loading it very easy. Thanks!

Julie said...

Karlee: Every time I change my ATG gun I have to refer to your video. Thank you so much for making this! Hope you keep it on your blog forever!

Thanks for making this video, I just got home with my pink ATG and tried to read the instructions... but remembered you had a video on this, and wow, what a blessing to watch how to load it instead of trying to read it!

Valerie's HeART said...

Karlee - you are a LIFESAVER! I just purchased my Pink ATG at Michaels and the directions stink! I had remembered your video. You rock! I am loaded and ready to roll. Thanks so much for helping those of us who are less savvy in the tool maintenance department.

Lisa J said...

Ok sooo I have been wanting one of these for so long now but just could not bring myself to buying it online. I went to Micheal's today because I had a coupon that expired today. And I found an ATG there!! I don't think its the 714 but I can not tell as it is the one for Breast Cancer awareness. Well it was $39.99 and I used my 40% off coupon!! Brought it home and watched your video with it in my hands to load it and it works PERFECTLY!
I was going to load it myself and it seemed complicated then I remembered seeing this video awhile back!
Thanks so much again Karlee!

Kathy L said...

thanks for the video - the directions had me so confused. You're video was super helpful!

Gail said...

very helpful video

Ruth B. said...

Thanks so much! I just got my ATG gun and couldn't seem to get it loaded right, when I remembered you had a video. I really appreciate you sharing!!

Just Jayma said...

Thanks, Karlee! I use this video EVERY time I reload my gun...LOL I guess I have a short memory, or my tape lasts a LONG time. LOL -=)

Amanda said...

Thank you for this video.. Just got my 1st atg today and this helped a lot. :)

Ashley said...

Thanks so much for this video. I was so wrong it wasn't even funny. I was close to just sending my ATG gun back!

Lisa said...

Can I tell you that I so appreciate your video on loading the ATG! No matter how many times I reload mine I always watch it first to make sure I'm doing it right. Mahalo!!

Gail said...

Karlee...months later I still look at your video to load my ATG . thanks
