Spellotape was an adhesive tape that was used in the wizarding world to fix objects that either could not be fixed by a spell, or when magic was not deemed appropriate to the situation.
- In 1992, Ron Weasley used Spellotape borrowed from Seamus Finnigan to try to keep his broken wand together, though the wand was still too damaged to function properly.
- During the 1993–1994 school year, Hermione Granger used it to restrain The Monster Book of Monsters, a biting book assigned by Rubeus Hagrid.
- Ginny Weasley used Spellotape in 1994 to fix one of her textbooks.
- Kreacher used it to repair the picture of Bellatrix Lestrange that he salvaged from the purge of 12 Grimmauld Place.
- Harry Potter found some Spellotape in Dolores Umbridge's office.
Behind the scenes
- Sellotape is a British brandnamed cellophane adhesive tape. It is similar to Scotch Tape in the United States of America. This is an example of the numerous puns used in the books.
