    Never used it but it is cool and noticed our local Wilkinsons store stocks it.

    I really want some now. That sort of thing fascinates me - I want to make hooks for EVERYTHING

    Yep, love the stuff!

    I've used it to improve light switches; and fix: a car keyfob, lid on a mini kitchen bin and, combined with Lego, the access panel on a boiler. I'm soon hoping to use it to repair a crack in a camera lens casing.

    It's awesome

    My immediate thought was "This stuff, plus magnets, Warhammer armies with interchangeable gear.."

    Just ordered a pack. This may be the solution to the ipad wire problem we have! It's worth a try!

    Sugru is good stuff and it's a nice story of product design and development. You can also make your own substitute by mixing Silicone Sealant with cornflour and if you want different colour, some acrylic artists paint.

    @elsiegee40 you will have to report back and let us know how you got on with it.

    Ive got scuff marks down to the steel on the tops of my work steel toe cap shoes so thinking black sugru might be a cheap alternative to repairing them instead of buying new.

    Sugru appeared on ITV's This Morning... Now that's a super soaker! | Home & Garden | This Morning

    Ive just got my pack of sugru today but now i'm reluctant to use it.
    @elsiegee40 have you done anything with it yet?
