Gave them as a present so don’t know how they worked out!
Had a hole in my plastic rattan chair fixed.
I like the novelty of this but it's harder than it looks to mould the plastic into a small object. That probably has more to do with my less than artistic fingers, but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it.
Smaller sticks could be useful also in order not to take off more than you need but I'm looking forward to some things breaking so that I get to use this more 😀
So easy to use and worked great for patching a cracked plastic casing. Had bought some for me and ended up giving them all away as gifts then forgot to get myself some more. Now remedied!
Saw this product on "customer is always right" some time back and as per usual forgot about them! When I needed to fix the bottom of my fridge door I looked up how to fix plastic, and the Fixits popped up! They are brilliant and so easy to use. Best £10 I have spent in a long time and quick free delivery.
I used a small heat gun to heat the plastic and it worked great.
I am going to find this very useful
Fantastic product. Need to work fast with it though. Suggest you keep it in hot water longer to get advantage of the longer working time. Once hard it is just what it says it is.
Not used yet . But disappointed sure I order all black pk ,but received multi colour ,
Hi Maureen, Thank you for the message, I've taken a look at your order and it says you ordered one pack of black, white and orange sticks. If this is not what you received please could you email firstname.lastname@example.org
I found Fix-its tricky to use. It sets quickly so you need to work fast which isn't easy when trying to repair something.
Using a heat gun to smooth the surface is also tricky. There is a very fine tipping point which is difficult to gauge where the surface can be smoothed or is too sticky and just makes a really rough surface.
I found that heating the metal spoon, instead of the set fix-its material, marginally more effective at smoothing the surface but that just took too long so gave up.
I did manage to effectively used Fix-Its to repair the handle of a tubbie which I use in the garden all the time (see picture) It took one stick of Fix-its and has held up well so far,
It was however not effective in repairing a leaking fuel tank on the auger as its a hard set, nor was it very good at providing a flexible cable fix.
I appreciate that the instructions say the thinner you make it the more flexible it is but the thinner it is the faster it sets which makes it impossible to get thin enough to be as flexible as Sugru for cables.
Definitely a useful addition to the toolbox but not as versatile for me as Sugru. Sorry.
I used FixIts to repair my whiteboard corners. I travel and train first aiders so the whiteboard is essential kit that gets bumped around and broken. Now fixed as good as new. Also with the same pack of 3 sticks I repaired the fixtures on the parcel shelf in my car. I still have one stick left! All in all the £9 pack of FixIts saved me over £150 and saved two large usable items going into land fill. I will definitely use FixIts again when the need arises.
Fixed a broken hinge that had been bothering me for ages. Really love that I can soften the whole thing again with a hairdryer if I make a mistake and want to start again, or just soften it locally to reshape, add material or pinch a bit off. It's so versatile and does the job brilliantly where nothing else would have worked so I'm very pleased!
I bought these for my husband as a stocking filler. He used them for the first this week to fix the lead to our daughter's lamp. The wire had pulled away from the base slightly and it had stopped working. This worked very well and was quick and easy to fix.
Delivery was quick and pleased with product. Useful for mending various things that might otherwise have been thrown out.
very good 5* dose a very good job
Found it easy to mould and smooth for a nice looking finish. Mixing the colours to achieve the shade you want was easy as well. Looks good, and sets hard.
Love these things, they are so clever. Even if you don’t get it right first time I love that you can use a hairdryer to perfect it. It’s like using blue tack, they aren’t hot when you pinch a piece off and go of perfectly solid. We have fixed every charger in the house that were sitting in drawers with loose connections - saved a fortune in replacing them and so much better than putting them in landfill as broken items. Looking for so many more things to fix around the home now !
We absolutely love our Fix It’s! We have fixed loads around the house and this is a reorder. Also ordered some as presents, trying to spread the word!
There's nothing like this on the market. It's not a glue and as long as you keep it away from extreme heat or a flame, then this is ireplaceable. You can make many things to repair broken items. I bought something similar over 15 years ago, so to find something similar and better is a bonus! You'll always find a use for it. ... sometime!
I haven’t used the sticks yet, but love the potential applications. I also love that it is ‘eco plastic’ and you can give items longer life. Fix it, don’t throw it!
Wish I had something to report! John O
Excellent product- I love mending things rather then throwing them away and this amazing stuff is so versatile
So far this has save us paying to get our window fixed as repaired a dent in the bracket so the window shuts correctly, repaired my sons blind cable and was great to be able to remold when it was not quite right, and tempoarly repaired my headset for work while I awaited a new one. Amazing product.
Hi, bought your 8pack of black and white. Just used the black to make a new end connector for my large umbrella. The bit which has the rainproof material sewn onto the end of the ribs had broken, so out came the FixIt stick and into hot water, then moulded a tiny replacement and stitched it all together. Great to use and it does not go off if you don't use it straight away.
I love these and I am so glad I bought these. They have helped to fix garden tools a cracked handle making it stronger and now it is like new.
