Let me introduce you to one of my favorite products ever made: Sugru air-curing rubber. I bought this as a gift for my father, but then wound up needing it so I opened that nifty silver package and never looked back. Sorry, Dad!
It was out of stock on Amazon for a while, but it’s back now. I figured I’d introduce my Homies to one of my favorite things.
Basically what happened was that my laptop charger became victim to my small dog. My small dog won, and the charger casing was broken and wires were just chilling out in the open. So I broke open the Sugru package and did exactly what you see on the photos above. Instead of using electrical tape (which kept unravelling) I just formed some of the putty around the cord, and boom! Good as new and electrocution safe.
Sugru is hand-formable, sticks to almost anything, air-cures at room temperature, forming a strong, flexible silicone rubber seal overnight. And once it’s cured, it’s totally waterproof! It’s perfect for repairing things, or hacking non-broken things to make them even better.
I’d love to see what uses you guys could come up with for this awesome stuff. Head over to Amazon and grab it while you can for $21.50.
