I used Fixits to fix the clamp on my coffee tin (the plastic part had broken off) and it works great and kept me from having to buy a new one. I also fixed a selfie-stick that had lost the inner pad and couldn't hold a phone properly anymore. Don't forget to tell people about hairdryers for reheating, I wasn't sure how to finish mine at first, and had to research to find this tip. And I love that it's compostable—and curious to try it, but don't want to waste my fixits! My only real complaint is that Spanish customs charged me a fortune to get it into the country. Do you have a European supplier? If you do, I'll definitely buy more.
What a great use for FixIts! We're in the process of making some new videos with tips and will include using a hair dryer to get a smooth finish and for removing FixIts. At the moment we don't have a European distributor but this is something we will try and set up. Thanks!
Well a couple of bald men now have a glorious head of orange hair thanks to fixits.
The reusable tape is good too but could do with some more guidance on use. It all arrived without any supporting paperwork and I can’t find instructions for reuse on the website.
Hi Mandy, we absolutely love your Playmobil fix! Thanks for you feedback regarding the reusable tape and we will look to include more guidance on how to use and reuse, both with the product and on our website. We can't wait to see what else you fix with FixIts!
Still not used, so cannot comment
Bought a small pack to see how effective it is..managed a small repair on a plastic handle and happy with the results..so easy to use ansd a little goes a long way..love the fact that you can reuse the bit you didn’t have to use, just add it back to the pack.
Keep this set of items handy for quick repairs at short notice.
I was a bit sceptical about the claims made but after receiving my first stick I’m converted. I had a cover on my front door key as I have two very similar keys on one keyring & can almost guarantee I will pick the wrong one without a cover. The cover has recently broken so I am back to standing in the rain trying to get into my house! I took the initial from the old cover & made a new one from the Fixit stick & it has done the trick & seems much more robust than the old cover. I’d buy more 😊

Thanks for your review Fiona and we're really pleased that you've used your stick already!
This is a potentially very useful product, I have used it for a couple of small fixes, and I'm sure more uses will become apparent in time.. However, I think the price is on the high side, and at a minimum of £5, a disincentive to purchase to put in a draw "just in case".
Thanks for your review and great to see that you've already used your FixIts. Thanks for your feedback regarding the price. We like to think that FixIts represent good value for money as they have so many applications to help save money and never expire meaning that they're ready to use at any time. That being said, it's worth signing up to our newsletter or following us on social media to find out when we have promotions on FixIts.
It has fixed an anniying little problem of a broken slider on my water but.
Takes a couple of attempts to get used to it, but does a great job
This thermoplastic is fantastic, it's great to keep for camping trips.
The list of uses is endless. It's easy to use and sets quickly. It's fairly expensive, but has a longer shelf life over Sugru. The only issue is what can't you use it for?
I used one to repair a garden metal table leg and it worked entirely satisfactorily.
I used part of it along with superglue to repair the phone pocket in my jacket - I had used araldite previously on the other side, but a bit messy and have run out (it works though). So far the combination has been holding up. Haven't had anything else to try it on yet.
The wheel mudguard spoke broke on my bike and I used the fixit to repair it. The fixit did a brilliant job, I’m so happy
These are just fabulous. Having fixed many things in the house, I'm going to take them camping so I can make hooks for hanging things up in the tent & other useful things
Rubbish u wont accept my g mail uccount.. it's [****] why?
I bought some fixits and some tape. The tape was okay. It worked on one occasion, but on others the item soon came unstuck. Washing and reusing didn't work so well for me either.
I was expecting the Fixits to be soft and flexible like Sugru, but it's harder. I think it has its uses, and it much easier to use / reuse than Sugru. I just wish it was softer / more flexible.
Great idea, though!
I’m an ardent fan of Fix It, and have found the sticks very handy. But I have been searching for a pack of just black sticks, but haven’t been able to find them.
Soften, mould, fix!
It couldn’t be easier! The fact you can re heat and then remould again and again is awesome!
Used these to fix a ledge in our freezer that supports one of the drawers. The moulded plastic surface had split and partially come away from freezer wall, exposing the insulation underneath. Wasn't sure it would work but saw online that someone else had tried it in a similar situation and thought I'd give it a go. The fixit plastic gripped the exposed broken edge of freezer wall surprisingly well and I'm impressed by how strong the plastic is once cooled, even in quite thin quantities. Also easily (re)workable when heated exactly as stated on the website, with no impact on strength when heated and cooled repeatedly. Still have two sticks left, and happy to have them in the drawer for when something else breaks.
They work but are not as strong as I thought they would be. Quite disappointed as they are quite expensive.

Love these - super handy, super easy to use, and super strong.
Such a neat idea that works like magic
I used a stick to fix a buckle on my bag as shown in an Instagram ad. It worked really well and is still going strong
