splicing videos

Is it safe to splice videocassettes? A local video store fixes our broken
videos if the break is at the very beginning or end and the tape can be
reinserted back on to the reel. Since using their services we haven't had a
tape break in the middle. I recall reading somewhere that splicing anywhere
but the very beginning or end can screw up VCR heads. Any truth to this?
And if it's safe to splice tapes, can anyone recommend a good kit? Thanks.
