  13. Odessa Crenshaw says:

    Did Not Wpked Like It Should

    ADMIN – Hi Odessa,

    That is the whole idea behind the class action settlement.

  14. Duh says:

    Yeah it should be pretty obvious that it doesn’t work. Do about one minute of research before buying stuff like this.

    ADMIN – Hi D,

    But the commercials…

  15. Jennifer Newton says:

    I purchased the KT Tape Recovery + Ice/Heat because the advertising suggested I could receive immediate pain relief and increased mobility with use. That was not my experience using the product.

    ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,

    It sounds like you are a class member.

  16. Greta Laws says:

    the ‘no receipt’ option does not work. I’ve spent a lot of money on this product, always buying the more expensive next step up version in hopes for better relief. not there is a suit against them and I can’t get my money back because the website is deceiving, too? shame shame!

    ADMIN – Hi Greta,

    I just tried it and it works. Perhaps you need to contact the admin to see if they can help you fill out a form.

  17. Jacqueline Triplett says:

    ADMIN – Hi C,

    Leaving a comment here does not count as a claim.

  19. Jon says:

    Impossible to file an online claim.
    Clicking Submit does not work.

    ADMIN – Hi Jon,

    I have heard a couple of users complaining about the form not working. You can report it to the class action administrator or you can print a form and send it via mail.

  20. Donna says:

    This Claim Submission Form does not work. Once completed and try to submit, it returns to the body of the claim.

    ADMIN – Hi Donna,

    I just tried it and it works. You can also use the paper form and send it via mail.

  21. Andrew says:

    It didn’t work

    ADMIN – Hi Andrew,

    File a claim

  22. jordin says:

    Did not work, peeled off at edges

    ADMIN – Hi Jordin,

    I don’t think this settlement has to do with the adhesive qualities of the tape. However, if you did purchase the tape by all means file a claim.

  23. Rose Stoddard says:

    It did not work.

    ADMIN – Hi Rose,

    That is why the judge approved the settlement.

  24. Anthony B says:

  25. shane p says:

    I got hosed 89.00 for a piece of tape, that didn’t do a thing! SCAM..

    ADMIN – Hi Shane,

    This product was never priced at $89

  26. daune a says:

    89.00 for a piece of tape, that didn’t do a thing. OUCH.

    ADMIN – Hi Daune,

    I paid about 7 dollars for mine.

  27. Denise says:

    This KT Tape lawsuit sounds like lawsuit abuse. As an avid, long distance runner I’ve used KT Tape several times and it worked. But I understand, everyone is different. Just like taking a pain reliever for a headache, most times for me it doesn’t work. I’m sure I’m not the only one this happens to. But you don’t see a class action lawsuit against Tylenol or Motrin, etc. Why are people so quick to sue?? Smh

    ADMIN – Hi Denise,

    I use the tape myself. I think in this instance the marketing claims were exaggerated but the tape does work for some applications.

  28. Angela Allensworth says:

    I bought some black KT tape in the pre-cut selections and tried to use it on my knee and foot injury. After watching numerous you tube videos about how to apply, I was not successful at finding any type of relief from the pain.

    ADMIN – Hi Angela,

    Remember to file your claim.

  29. Adriana Rodriguez says:

    I have bought it and did not work.

    ADMIN – Hi Adriana,

    File a claim.

  30. Bill hopkins says:

    Did not work like it was supposed to

    ADMIN – Hi Bill,

    Exactly, that is why there is a settlement.
