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.
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.
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 :)
