Going anywhere nice this year? Add a pack of sugru to the safe part of your suitcase or backpack for some extra insurance and enjoy being the holiday hero!

Nothing worse than lost luggage, make sure you can spot yours from a distance.
OK the handle on your rolling suitcase is broken, and you're getting the fear about having to carry your luggage around everywhere. Don't panic! sugru can help.
Sugru-ers Enzo and Danilo have both used sugru to rebuild their worn out suitcase wheels.
Danilo says "My trolley suitcase was over-used, but still perfect on the outside. The rubber cover on the wheels was destroyed in some airport and all the trolley movement got very, very noisy. I used 20g of sugru and it's perfect like new, smooth and quiet."
Smart thinking here from Rocio. Sugru bonds to many fabrics, so it is super useful for patching up parts of your well-loved suitcase.
Marie's kids had been putting their ride on suitcases through it's paces. Rescued with Sugru in time for the next adventure.
Your shades don't have to be broken to break out the sugru. Anyone can improve the design of their stuff — modify and adapt your sunglasses so they fit juuust right for you.
Sugru-ers are always coming up with clever new ways to adapt and modify their cameras. From making little buttons more tactile or creating the perfect shape to fit your grip.

Robbie's simple but smart fix "makes a big difference to some nice-but-slightly-uncomfortable flip flops."
Holly and James are travelling around the world together! Before they left James sugru-ed their GoPro camera to the end of an old ski pole. Great for getting photos together on the journey!

Sometimes you just need to tune out the noise and relax. Long journeys can be transformed with a good playlist, audiobook or a few podcasts. So get those headphones comfy and travel ready before you head out or take some sugru with you... just in case.
This is just so clever. Patrick from Germany hacked the swing top bottle of his favourite beer to build a book holder. Perfect for those beach days! You'll get a sense of satisfaction every time you use this!
Awesome sugru user Mikael showed us this hack that might come in handy on your holidays...
"Since I have quite a strong prescription, I'm more or less blind when I swim. I don't want to buy prescription goggles as they're so expensive, but I had several old, ordinary glasses as well as regular swimming goggles. So, I sugru'ed them together! The end result works really well!"
Sometimes, you just don't want to carry around a wallet or purse, but need the essentials like cards and keys. Get the best of both worlds.
Darren was travelling in Europe and his plug adapter was loose and kept falling off. Not exactly what you need on a holiday. Luckily he had some sugru with him, for moments just like this.
This is a hack that works amazingly well - for broken zips on bags, jackets, suitcases or tents. Watch this little film to see just how easy it is!
Steve's beach umbrella snapped on a windy day, luckily he discovered Sugru before he threw it out.
"Sugru worked like a charm, moulding to the plastic perfectly, even in the humid, tropical weather in Mexico!"
