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!
I wanted to "Get fixing with this pack of 3 FixIts sticks" - but when I go to "buy it now" it wants so sell me a big pack of 8 sticks instead !
Thanks for the message, I'm sorry you're having trouble ordering. I've tried to replicate your issue with our website, but I've been unable to.
If you'd be so kind as to help me understand where this issue was occurring then that would be greatly appreciated.
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 bought the big package- came with no instructions or guidelines for use other than minimal ones on the bag. While I applaud the lack of superfluous packaging- these were intended as a gift for someone unused to them - there is little to inspire or guide someone who may be getting to grips with this material for the first time
Thank you for your feedback Jane,
I'm sorry that the packaging for the 8 pack wasn't appropriate enough for you. We've just finished work on a new 3 pack that has more comprehensive instructions and a gift pack that will be released in the next few weeks with a little instructional booklet.
The 8 packs we ordered before we made these updates so it'll take some time before we make the improvements on that.
We do ship an informational pamphlet with all orders which should contain more info. But if you'd like to share the below pdf with the person you're gifting it to then that should go a long way to helping them understand FixIts better. But I appreciate this isn't an ideal solution.

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.
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
