I second the comment on hockey tape. Clear hockey tape and marley tape are essentially the same thing just hockey tape is (at least in Canada) like 5$ for a whack of rolls. Mainly come in 1" rolls but from time to time I've seen 2" as well.

Clear packing tape works wonders! No residue or anything and it has always stayed down for me. I usually put it down the first day of tech week just in case the director makes any changes.

I would be careful when working in outdoor theater. Clear packing tape will leave a residue and sometimes will melt into the deck.

its also a HUGE pain to get up. It's also slippery so if you are working with dancers that can be a big issue

I echo clear vinyl/PVC tape. We cover all our spikes and glo with it on Marley and it works great and comes up clean.
