An arc taper tool is described herein that enables a user to easily lay curved sections of tape on a surface. The arc taper includes a swivel rod, a moveable holder to which is attached a pin that can be placed on the floor, and a tape holder that can hold a roll of tape. The tape holder is designed to accommodate tape rolls of various sizes and can be moved along the rod to adjust the arc radius. A wheel is attached to the tape holder to apply pressure to the tape after it has been laid on the floor for better adhesion. An arc taper guide that includes edges that can be aligned to respective sections of tape can optionally be utilized to lay a curved section of tape. The arc taper pin is positioned at a location marked by a hole in the arc taper guide and rotated about the location to lay a curved section of tape.
