Please don't ever use that self-fragmenting brittle clear scotch type tape!! Blue painters (or regular masking type) tape is much more acceptable. It is a lot easier to remove and doesn't gum up the top loaders, which leaves them actually usable for storage and display.
But if you must use clear tape, do this:
Make a pull tage by folding over the end of the strip, creating a handle. This is so much better than having to claw for an edge or snip through a piece of tape and leaving it stuck to the top loader or snap box.
