The problem is you don’t use them very often and in some situations it’s impossible to re use them as the item cant be re heated . Used them to repair drawer rail in freezer worked a treat.. clear ones would be good so you don’t have to colour match and you could use on glass and plastic lens covers on cars
My old elephant has tusks now! Works great.
This is great for electronics repairs and making tool handles ergonomic. We’ve used other putty before but it dries out or gets weird if you don’t need it all at once. This stores really well and you can use as much or as little as you need. It’s adjustable too! So less pressure.
So far the repairs and tool handle adjustments we’ve done have had no problems with cracking or getting out of place or anything else like that. The colours are fun and easy to “mix” or keep conservative.
Definitely recommend this product if it’s along the lines of what you need!
My brother has trigger finger (aka stenosing tenosynovitis) where his thumb locks and can’t be bent without pain. He wears a big splint most of the time to immobilise the joint so it can heal on its own, but this interferes with his guitar playing. I used about half a stick of FixIts to quickly mould a short splint that effectively immobilises just that joint, and now he’s back to playing as well as he ever did.
I put a small piece of fabric over his thumb, warmed up the FixIts stick in a cup of water heated in the microwave, then gently squeezed the plastic over that joint, making a perfectly fitting ring brace. A quick dunk in some cold water hardened it. My first try was a little loose, so I just reheated it and squeezed it on again till it was perfect. It’s very easy to mould into any shape with your bare hands while it’s still warm, then hardens at room temperature.
