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.
