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!
Make a thermometer clip
I wanted to be able to clip my digital thermometer probe to the side of a pan / bowl / jug. Usually I would have to stand holding the probe at the right position until I hit the jam temperature. If I let go the probe would inevitably take the reading off the base of the pan or fall into the object being heated.
I used a metal clip from a pen to provide some stability and strength for the sugru. First I cleaned the probe and applied some washing up liquid to it (this helps later when sliding the sugru off to cure it).
Next I moulded the sugru into place, inside the clip, and slipped it on the probe. I pressed the sugru into shape and snug with the probe. Then I carefully slid the sugru and clip off the probe and left it to cure overnight.
