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!
Structure a DIY home theatre PC
I first used sugru to fix my Bose headphones, but wanted to do something more. In the meantime, I started to build a HTPC for my wife, and salvaged components from friends and family. I got a really old computer case, and then I was lucky enough to receive some laptop hard drives from some friends and my company. The computer case did not have trays to install hard drives this small, and I couldn't get my hands on size adapters. I tried installing the hard drives directly to the case using velcro, but the hard drives were uncomfortably close to the case. I decided to build my own hard drive rack with sugru and some wooden sticks that I had to make shishkabob. I applied sugru to the head of some screws and then joined the screws to the sticks. sugru doesn´t touch the hard drives and the sticks don't touch the case, but it does make contact on both the bottom and the top. I needed the setup to be pretty sturdy since I often move the computer for cleaning and other things. I don't plan on changing the hard drives for another year or two. So I pretty much got almost 1TB of space for almost nothing! Frank, Mexico.
