Sugru anyone?

Just went to a home show and was introduced to a new- to -me product called "sugru"
(developed by a woman who wanted to fix things and adapt things rather than throw out things)

Have since googled it and been amazed at the potential it appears to have for all are little problems and mods on FG trailers!

There is even a possible homemade formula knock-off named ooggoo.

Has anyone tried this? ...the sugru, I mean.

Don't know how to post a link but google will bring you to where it is.

I know I will be trying this stuff.

its sort of a putty type stuff that hardens like a plastic.
go to website "instructables" and you will find lots of crazy projects people come up with for it.

It also mentions it has the properties of silicone, a no no for fiberglass trailers.

Direct link to Instructables ooggoo: How To Make Your Own Sugru Substitute

While I wouldn't consider using it on my Scamp... anywhere that it may touch the fiberglass, I can see where it MAY work elsewhere.. like to repair a gray water tank... maybe?

Interesting stuff... from one Donna to another!

Thanks for posting the correct links P. Raz and Donna.

I had kinda forgotten the never use silicone rule re FG trailers....but I also thought it would be great stuff..... sorta in the duct tape category.

Site shows repairing tools, pot knobs, making handles, protectors for cameras, ipads and readers, not to mention fixing running shoes , boots and metal "things"

Plus I simply love the colors
Grown-up Plasticine that fixes stuff!!!!

it could be usefull for making say, a doors top if you have a cupboard that tend to bump something every time you use it. or a cabinet knob for that one you always bump your head on.
or if you have a slippery knife handle.
so theres lots of things it could fix without the silicon beind a problem.

but i just had a thought about that plastigrip stuff you dip things in to coat. you could dip a dishrack in it to keep plates from rattling and chipping? or not.
