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.

Make a universal tap attachment adaptor
I found out about sugru from Instructables and being the handyman in my household, l knew I could put it to good use. I've done a few hacks so far, but the one I love is the one I did yesterday. I moved into a flat which had all the furnishing done. The thing is the taps were not the standard ones common in most flats. So when I bought a new tap extension, I was disappointed that it didn't fit the tap. Checking with the shops, I was told I need not look anymore as most shops don't carry the right fitting :( But then I remembered seeing sugru used to shape a spout on a tap so I decided it might be strong enough to hold the tap extension. It works wonderfully. It's like using a universal adapter - it works for any tap! I just love it! Peter, USA
