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.

Secure a wobbly D-lock Prevent mid-ride wobbles
My big beefy D-lock is strong and tough, but it comes with the wimpiest clip for storing it on your bike. After about 4 months of having this lock the chock part that clips onto the bike (see metal attachment on left in the picture) would fall off whenever I opened the lock, and when it was clipped onto my bike it was always flapping around. So annoying! The lock was expensive and has a high security rating so I didn't want to get a new one. sugru sounded like it would fix my problem, but as it was early days I had to WAIT until it was available to buy.
Anyway, after what seemed like FOREVER (but was probably about 2 months) I finally got some sugru. I took the chock off the lock and put some sugru around the shaft where the chock normally sits. Then I put the chock back on over the sugru squishing it all into place. I put some sugru over the end of the chock to stop if from falling off. With the leftover sugru I put some on the other end of the lock (so it didn't look uneven) and used some as a bumper on the locking part.
Nearly 2 years later, this is still working perfectly. It's a bit grubby because I cycle commute and use it almost every (working) day, but it does the job. The chock is held really stiffly in place which is absolutely perfect, and I've saved a lot of money by not having to buy a new lock. THANK YOU SUGRU! Jenny, Yorkshire.
