I've since switched to blenderm myself, but previously I used their 2" clear packing tape with good results.

Scotch 845 Book tape is the best I have used. It's like packing tape, only a little thicker with an aggressive adhesive which is designed to last a long time. I bought some at Office Max, but it wasn't there the last time I needed some, so I got it from Amazon.

3m storage tape is also what is used

I have a few 4 year old wings and the hinges are like new.

The storage tape is uv protected and a bit thicker than the packing tape. like the book tape the adhisive is more agressive as well..

You can find that in most stores that carry postal supplies

to elaborate on CK's commnet

packing tape is brittle and will break down in about 6 months of sun exsposure you would be better off using moncoat for your hing VS packing tape.

The storage tape is well suited for our needs

I ended up buying Blenderm again from Ebay. They have 12 rolls for 21 bucks shipped. The storage tape looks good and thick but it's too wide for my application.
