Sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and making stuff.
Sugru can be formed and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its packaging.
Sticks to almost anything
Sugru forms a strong bond to metal, ceramics, glass, wood and some plastics like perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber.
Air cures at room temperature
Sugru is like modelling clay when you take it from its pack. Once it's exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight using the moisture in the air.
The Sugru gallery - this place belongs to you! This is where we publish the best of the fixes, mods, hacks and improvements sent to us by Sugru users every month. Whether you're a pro, or just getting started, share your projects with us — you might even win some free Sugru!
Fix a Kobo eReader's on/off switch
In Canada we have a super little touchscreen eReader, but with the most impractical sliding on/off switch ever conceived; it's mounted flush with the chassis of the machine! When the eReader is nestled in its cover, you practically have to sacrifice a fingernail just to turn it on. Now with my latest sugru hack I switch the thing on just because I CAN. Plus I get to keep my fingernails. Ta-da! James, Canada.
