Library street collective ships this way (which is prolly who he's taking about). It's drymounting annoying.

G1988 does this. Takes me forever to unpack.

Regarding packing tape on the end caps- you don't need a lot of it, but you do need good packing tape. Crummy tape won't stick reliable no matter how much tape you use, and a single strip of great packing tape around the edge of a cap will hold it as surely as a staple if not better.

This stuff is beastly: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005P7P9M ... 5e_g229_i5


I love the USPS Priority tape. I get it from my local PO because I drop off stuff so much. It is thin and strong which makes it just right for the end caps.

Before I found this stuff, that's what I used. This stuff is on another level of strongness.
