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!
Prevent dog leads from snagging In the gaps on wooden decking
I have three dogs, and I have a wooden front porch. Which sounds like it'd be great, until you realise that the gaps in the boards of the porch are exactly wide enough to snag the dogs' leads. The leads slip into the crack and, as the dogs head towards the house, get pulled and stuck, tightly enough that the dogs (especially the little one - a 3kg mini dachshund) can't pull them out and are stuck. sugru to the rescue! In August of 2010, I took a packet of sugru and wedged it between the gaps of the porch. It's made it through two Ohio winters and one unbelievably hot summer - a temperature range of 0F to 100F - and it's still going strong. There are some places where the boards have settled and the sugru is now only attached on one side, but it still works just fine and I fully expect that it'll be next summer before I have to replace it. And, frankly, a packet of sugru every couple years is much cheaper than replacing the porch! Cooper (pictured) appreciates it, too. Meghan, USA
