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.
You probably love your MacBook Pro. But there is something we all hate about it: It's rubber feet.
I'll show you how simple it can be to design your own customized long-lasting rubber feet. They have a better grip and durability than the original ones.
- 1 pack of Sugru
- Soapy water
Make a single roll of Sugru and cut it in 4 (equal) pieces. Then roll each of the pieces into a round ball (like we used to do with Play Doh!). Now place a ball of Sugru in one of the rubber feet slots (make sure you took out the original completely) pressing the rear end of the hole with a finger in order to prevent Sugru from squeezing in through the hole in the panel. Mould it to your best round shape.
Repeat the same process for each slot. Use some soapy water to make the surface of each feet smooth. Also gently press the whole panel against a flat surface in order to level it.
