Sugru Is the Grown-Up Play-Dough for DIY Projects


If you’ve ever dabbled in small home improvement projects, wanted to fix a damaged item or just mold something to a desired shape to hold something, Sugru might be just the thing for you. Perhaps falling somewhere between ubiquitous duct tape and super glue, Sugru is a moldable, self-curing rubber that can bond to a variety of surfaces and is electrically insulating, so clever techies can patch broken cable housings in sundry chargers, adapters and the like. Starting at $10 for a pack of 3 to $18 for a pack of 8, Sugru could be a MacGyver-wannabe’s new best friend. Check out the impressive gallery from Sugru users!

  1. I need to pick up some of this for a couple small projects.

  2. There’s some ingenious things people have done with them. There are several videos showing how to create a 3-4 point mount for an iPad using Sugru, which is how I stumbled upon it.
