FOREIGN PATENTS Great Britain Primary Examiner-Samuel Feinberg Attorney-Waters, Roditi, Schwartz & Nissen ABSTRACT: In a label dispenser of the kind in which self-adhering labels are lightly adhered to a roll of tape which is drawn step-by-step over an edge member to cause the labels to become partly peeled, one after the other, from the tape, there is incorporated means acting automatically to compensate for any slackness that may develop in the tape as a result of a label being plucked therefrom, thus ensuring accuracy of delivery.
