Annoying excess tape coming out the front of your BIC Wite-Out? Here's how to quickly fix it. There are a couple of short 1:18 and 1:57 videos after the last step of this instructable. Separate two halves of Wite-Out by prying the halves apart with your fingernails/fingers/coin/flat blade screwdriver, starting at the fat end of the Wite-Out. Keep upright to prevent the fresh tape roll from falling out.
Step 1: Proper Threading of Tape, in Case Your Wite-Out Fresh Tape Wheel Falls Out
Fresh tape goes atop posts while used tape goes through the two closest together posts.
Step 2: More Threading - Tip of Dispenser
White side of tape contacts paper while clear side of tape goes back to the big used tape wheel.
Step 3: Immobilize Bottom Half of Big Wheel While Moving Top Half Clockwise to Take Up Slack
With your left index finger, keep bottom half of big used tape wheel from moving, while the top half of the used tape wheel is moved clockwise to take up the slack. Don't tighten too tight. Reverse going counterclockwise if you need a little more slack. When done, press the two halves of the Wite-Out together.
