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.
I bought my Fixits sticks to help my kids on a craft project. Since then I have used them on an a number of occasions that have ranged from ad-hoc repairs, wire managment to improving the ergonomic of a small latch. It is one of those things that I need to know I have around even if I don't know how I will use it, like flour, string, glue, or oil.
I have used the fixit 4 times now. First to make a new ear for an ornament that had snapped clean off. Secondly to repair my glasses. Thirdly to fix a handle onto an old sive I use to clean debris from the pond and lastly by pushing it inside a door handle knob, making an invisible repair. Excellent stuff.
We used the Fixits as end stoppers for some curtain rails, as the curtains kept slipping off the ends. They did the job perfectly and the white matched the colour of the curtain rail for an almost invisible repair.
As the title suggests I think these eco plastic sticks are fab! They fix things that are otherwise a complete nightmare to mend.
I saw them on a FB advert and was slightly dubious but they weren’t too expensive so I thought I’d try them to fix a plastic tractor-trailer where trailer was destined for the tip as we couldn’t fix with glue. They’ve fixed the trailer so well and can now withstand my girls dragging heavy loads around the garden. We’ve also fixed our freezer drawers, scissors, can opener and I’m sure we’ll come up with more uses soon.
Good for fixing small things, but also great as improv shock absorbers where you have a surface you don't want to scratch.
Works as advertised - brilliant!
Participated in the Kickstarter and thought it was a great idea. I confess I haven't had a situation where I felt I needed them, so more than half are still in the drawer.
Hey there, sorry you haven't found much use for them yet, so we'd like to point you towards our 'little book of FixIts'. Here you'll find some inspiration, top tips and more to inspire you :)

I first saw this product on a TV programme, I ordered some straight away as they are such an amazing, versatile product. I’ve used mine to fix many things - so easy to use. Every home should have a pack.
Backed Fixits when they were on Kickstarter. The Fixit sticks are pretty handy. Fixed a few things around the house that couldn't really quick able to fix with conventional glue or even Superglue of any kind. I even used it to reinforce a few items that I didn't want it to break but don't really care about the look. Great product for things that would otherwise just be a hot garbage fix with duct tapes.
I think I got mine back when they were in Kickstarter. They have worked for everything I used them for.
Great gift for tech lovers
I used them to recover some cables I needed!
Great for many things that sugru won’t fix, it also is reusable and has no shelf life, I have had many sugru packs pass the use by, when needed it is a sachet of hard set rubber. This is far more plastic like so better for many fixes and can be reheated and remoulded. Nice colours too. I’ll have to dig mine out as I still have a couple of sticks. Tough as old boots and a good U.K product funded on Kickstarter...🙂
Managed to extend the life of some cables
Love this product!
Excellent for fixing phone charging cable and also moulded a lip on a music stand to stop the music falling down.
It does need a little practice to get it just so but that’s not a problem as just Re-heated with the hair dryer and started again.
I used a stick once and it was fun and seemed to work okay to extend the life of a recharge-cable for a bit. Didn't find use of it outside that one time though and I've since lost the pack. Idunno, the product's okay I guess?
The product was easy to use helped to fix
Not as good and sticky as I thought
Sorry to hear about your experience with FixIts John. It's important to remember that FixIts is not a glue and so will not 'stick' like a glue does (except to a few materials where it forms a chemical style bond when hot).
FixIts works best when wrapped around things to form strong mechanical repairs. Hopefully in the future you'll find a great use for your FixIts!
These are an amazing invention. I saw these whilst watching the BBC program, introducing new investors, which 3 sets of people had a chance to test and then rate. The fixits won, which is hardly surprising. They fix things that can’t be fixed with super glue or Velcro. Some of the things that I’ve used it to fix are cables , especially chargers where the outside casing has split, straps on an exercise bike, and only the other day, I use it to secure the ball on to the joystick of my electric wheelchair. (where super glue had failed to work). Whoever invented them is very clever. I especially like the concept that the sticks can be reheated and used again. Any waste can be reheated and used again. I cannot rate these fix sticks highly enough!
The product has been great of two or three little jobs, and solved problems that I couldn't really have sorted out any other way - however, due to circumstances beyond my control, work on my very old house has come to a standstill at the moment! As soon as it does resume, I am sure I will be in touch!
Ich habe die Fixits schon oft eingesetzt. Einfach in heißen Wasser erweichen und die gewünschte Form modellieren. Für schnelle Reparaturen unterwegs eine tolle Sache!
Fix its are good for a very specific use case.. one that I have only ever had a few times. My fix its were delivered 3 years ago, after I backed them on kick starter. There has only been 2 times that fix its have been the best solution for the problem. That being said... they work well if you have the need for them. Working time is a little shorter than I would like.
At first try I took a nice bowl where I usually eat my breakfast cereals but now it’s full fixit traces which I cannot remove anymore and that was really frustrating. There might be nice things to use it for but I haven’t found any so far - however I really do like the idea of it.
I can easily repair things at home and the result is more solid ans dirable than using glue. The result is also more astetic.
