Projects & Inspiration

As we shift over from summer to autumn, we’re reflecting on the fun we’ve had, and some of the things we need to get done before the year is out.  Autumn is a great time to fix up summer breaks, send the kids off to college, make tweaks in the garden, and prepare for – yes – the Christmas holidays.

College is a great time to get into the fixing habit. It’s clever too, it can help save money because you don’t need to buy new stuff all the time. Plus you get to impress your new friends!

Imagine if everyone going to college this September came out with an A+ in fixing? We can fix the bigger stuff by starting with the small things.

To get you, or a college starter you know, on your way, here are our Five FixIts Top Tips for college fixes.

This time of year, the fixes are as likely to be outside as in. Pop some Fixits into your back pocket and get ready to spruce up your jungle. Wobbly wheelbarrow? Tired trowel? Hanging basket barely hanging on? Not a problem with shape-shifting FixIts.  

Summer’s almost sorted. You’re getting everything packed and ready, when suddenly you realise: the spade is broken! What do you do?
Sometimes things snap or bend, becoming useless. Repair them using FixIts - it takes less that 2 minutes!  FixIts cools to form a hard structural fix to repair things that tape and glue can't!
It can be frustrating when a zipper pull snaps and comes apart leaving you with nothing to hold onto to open your zipper. With FixIts and a paperclip you can create a new pull in under 5 minutes. 
It happens to all of us, cable frays exposing the shielding and we know that it's nearing the end of it's life... or is it? With FixIts you can quickly wrap over that fray and strengthen your cable so it's good as new again!
Sometimes that plastic buckle that holds your bag straps snaps and you're left with no easy way to join them back together. Luckily FixIts is strong enough to hold them together and can fix it back to new in less than 10 minutes.
Repair snapped parts by creating new solid sections using FixIts. In this blog post, we show you how to fix a chipped smartphone cover using FixIts. 
In this post we show you how to make your own weighted knot charging cable (much like the native union charging cables) using nothing more than a 3m long cable and half a stick of FixIts.
