SugruÂ® Self-Setting Rubber
fantastic fix-it product
It's exactly what you expect- silicone rubbery putty. I have used it for:
repairing the outside of a cracked cooler.
adding a comfort fit to earpiece
repairing a broken hook
adding comfort nose pad to cheap reading glasses.
adding grip to keys
edges of key pulls so they don't jangle
The only downside is shelf life. It lasts up to a year if kept in the fridge, but I would love to be able to keep a couple packs in the car for emergencies- Id just have to rotate them out after 6 months.

I got the Sugru to repair my iPhone charging cords, I had two of them, the repair was easy and when I checked the next day it was just as advertised a rubber repair. I've been thinking of all the things I can do with it, like rubber handles on some of our tools, the projects are endless!

Very useful stuff
We bought this rubber to fix a cord for our iPhone. It worked beautifully, but we had a lot left over that we needed to use before it dried out. Luckily, the company's website has lots of ideas for uses, and you won't believe how versatile this material is. The best advice is to have several projects lined up before you open a package, so you won't waste any. I bet we'll be buying more!

So many uses!
I am so glad I purchased this product! I have only used one of the three packets, but with that one packet I did the following:
1. Repaired my laptop's charger cable.
2. Repaired my iPhone charger cable.
3. Patched a hole in my son's tennis shoes.
4. Reinforced the fraying cords on my Bluetooth headphones.
I cannot recommend this enough! I will be using this product for many more fixes. Even if it is just used to repair cables, it is worth the money.
