Vet wrap for new pvc playgym

I was wondering if you guys can tell me the best vet wrap to buy. I have been unlucky with it in the past not being very sticky and it coming undone. Do they also make it for kids? If so, does that work better than the one made for animals?

What I have seen people do that I think is better is to just wrap thin string/rope around the PVC pipe to give it grip.

I was looking at getting mine off Amazon and having used it while working at my avian vets, I can tell you it is very sticky the majority of the time

I just used wrap for kids. See the thread "our boys playstand" under videos to see it. It's getting sticky now, but it's been on for four months and needs changing regardless. Hth
