Clear Museum Gel


Product Information

Protect your precious breakables from bumps, tips and jostles with our ingenious Museum Gel. Completely removable, reusable and non-toxic, the gel is a type of liquid plastic that reacts to the size and weight of the object being secured to create a customized, secure bond between the object and display surface. Because it's clear, it's perfect for securing delicate transparent items like glass or crystal. It's especially helpful in households with children or cats, and for those who live in areas prone to earthquakes. To use, take a small amount of gel and roll into balls or strips. Apply several to the bottom of the object, then gently press the object down on a display surface that's impervious to water or moisture (like glass, tile, metal, sealed stone or some varnished woods). For opaque items, try our Museum Putty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This stuff is Great! Purchased this gel to secure items in our new Motor Coach. It is the best stuff. It will not stain your countertops or any surface that it is used on. I used it to secure our coffee maker to the countertop. It is easy to remove also. July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clearly the best gel. We have a motor home that we travel in 15-20 weeks a year. I use the clear museum gel to secure my lamps, picture frames, decorative bowls, etc. I never have to put things away when we go from place to place. Saves so much time and really keeps everything perfect. What a great invention! May 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Little Product You would never notice this little gem unless someone told you about it. I'm happy to oblige. My sister Lulu and I cared for our 95 year old Momma for many years. As she aged, she did the "wiggle" and the "tipsy" and the "whoa, I am falling" due to aged related medical issues. This resulted in bumping into everything. She loved all her little knicknacks, like the procelain shark from our family trip to Disney World, and her statue of St Bernadette, where she hid her 20s . . these items made her home her own. ENTER MUSEUM GEL - here a glob, there a glob, everywhere a glob, glob. Problem solved! Nothing is moving with that great product underneath. Sure made our lives so much better and our Momma much more secure. March 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great Read the directions because it is different than anything I have ever used. I used it to hold the lamp shade in place on my floor lamp. Worked great, very stable now. April 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solved my problem I have an antique hutch with loose glass panes. Every time we walked in front of it, the glass would rattle ... the sound was annoying, and I was afraid that the glass would eventually break. I saw this stuff and tried it out -- used tiny amounts around the glass, at the leading. You can't see it, and it keeps the glass panes in place. No more rattle! I love this stuff. March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Random Magic This stuff works for everything- I even used it to affix a bumper sticker to the inside of a leased car window. Friends come over and try to pick up a vase off of the counter, thinking I've lost it and superglued it on, but nope, this gel really is that strong and versitile. You'll be glad you got it. Plus, a little goes a long way, so share some! March 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by works! Got it to deal with pets - and it works for delicate items and heavier vases. Keeps items safe and nice for pictures on the walls too. January 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Multipurpose at home! Museum gel may be the best at small bowls to larger trays for hors D'oeuvres, candles in "non-candle holders", etc. You be the guide for anything you want to stand still (except children.) I use it often and am now giving them for hostess gifts. I would much rather get something useful than one I must "re-gift". July 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This product is awesome. You can use it for a number of different things in your home and it only takes a very small amount to work. Of course it works for its stated purpose, but do you have pictures on the wall that are always getting crooked? Try to little balls on each of the bottom ends - holds the picture in place perfectly. Want to display a plate leaning against your backspash in the kitchen? Just a two little balls set on the counter, let them set up, then set your plate up and it won't slide down and break and know one but you will notice the clear balls of gell holding the plates in place. It is a must have! February 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved my breakables from an inquisitive cat! Amazing stuff if you have a cat that climbs around your breakable items. I didn't believe it would work, but I needed to keep pretty items on the marble counter, because my house is for sale. I've got a very energetic young cat, who gets into EVERYTHING, and he broke one of the glass canisters the very first night it was on the counter. The museum gel holds so tight, that it feels like the canisters are part of the counter - the cat could push on them with all his might, and they won't come off! Fortunately, it comes with instructions on how to remove, and I tested it - you really can get it safely off. And, the gel really is invisible! A little goes a long way. Every cat owner should have this stuff! February 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Product I have used this product for years. I have a very old urn that was my Grandmother's and I was always afraid either the kids or the cat would knock it over. No worry with this product. It lasts forever, yet is easy to remove if desired. Best of all, it does not harm furniture. July 6, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worked great Used this item to fasten glasses to a tray for a play. It worked great and appears to be reusable. Quite a bit more expensive than the colored version, but great if you need invisible coverage. May 29, 2010

Can this be used on nice wood furniture, will it leave a mark?

Asked by: KBLB
Our Clear Museum Gel is safe for most furniture finishes, but we recommend testing it on an inconspicuous area to see how your furniture reacts before use.

How do you remove a Museum Gel stain from flagstone?

Put a glass object down on our fireplace hearth during remodeling to protect the glass. The object had several spots with Museum Gel on it, as it had been on a pedestal prior to remodeling. Now our hearth is stained--and looks like it has oily spots on it. Help!!
Asked by: KenCookie
Our Clear Museum Gel is very difficult to remove from porous surfaces but for the best results we suggest using either mineral spirits or an adhesive remover — carefully read the instructions for either the mineral spirits or adhesive remover to ensure it won’t damage the stone. You can also test the solution on an inconspicuous section of the stone before applying it to the stains.

will heat affect the holding power of the gel.

I have a chandiler lamp with little cups around the base of the lights. the cups keep tilting.. will the gel hold them even if gets warm from the room temp?

This product has not been tested to work near a heat source and we cannot predict how it will perform in elevated temperatures.

It's probably no surprise to you that we LOVE a good collection - a little obsession that needs to be displayed or contained. Well, when we heard about the Eye of the Collector exhibit at the Perot Museum in Dallas, we were all in. If you are in town, it's a summer must-see.
