How to fix your sandals
Get them ready for your holidays
You’ve planned your vacation down to the tiniest detail and it’s going to be amazing! But sometimes things can go wrong… but that’s ok! Pack some Sugru next to your suncream and you can figure out a fix on the fly.
This is such a classic Sugru fix, we made a cute new video. Take a look and see just how cleverly simple this fix is.
Even if your zip-pulls aren't broken yet, a little bit of Sugru will make them nicer to use, and help customise your case for that moment when there are 10 identical cases circling on the baggage carousel.
With a pack of Sugru handy, you don’t have to sweat the small stuff — you’ll always be prepared for those little mishaps and misadventures. So no precious vacation time wasted going in search of a specialist shop, because you’ll have the fix right there in your bag. Who knows, you might become the holiday hero :)
Sugru is strong and grippy, perfect for constructing new zips on absolutely anything. All you need for this project is half an individual-use packet of Sugru and a paper clip. Oh, and you’ll need to choose a colour!
Divide your Sugru in two equal pieces.
Feed the paper clip through the zip loop and mould one of the pieces of Sugru around it.
Texturise and decorate to your preferred style.
In 24 hours, your zip will be ready to tackle your vacation – and your packing skills!
What we love about Sugru-ers is that they are never left at a loss — the show must go on, and you guys just get things sorted so everyone can get on with the fun stuff!

Brighten up your luggage! Use a little Sugru as an identification tag so you can easily identify it when it arrives on the baggage carousel.
It's your holiday, nothing can stop you from having fun! With Sugru in your vacation essentials, not even a tear in your suitcase, your favourite handbag or your watch strap will impact upon your relaxation. You'll be able to fix any problem that arises with ease and continue on with your vacation as though nothing had happened.
Sugru is both waterproof and durable, which makes it perfect for ensuring your sandals or shoes are vacation ready. Check out our how-to guide for a great way to repair your favourite sandals just in time for the beach.
The last thing you want when you're on vacation is to spend time finding a specialist shop to fix your frayed or damaged cables. Whether it's your headphones, your phone, your laptop or your eBook, keep a pack of Sugru handy at all times and you'll be able to repair the charger without having to leave the comfort of your pool lounger.
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 just right for you.
