*Toolbox Superglue 8 x 3g*
This superglue is one I purchased from Poundland. They come in a pack of 8, 3g tubes. The small tubes make them great for using for small jobs, to minimise waste. The packaging is black and yellow, and each tube comes with a screw on nozzle and cap. The cap has a pin which is used to open the seal of the tube. To open, remove the nozzle and cap, then turn the cap upside down and pierce the seal. Replace the nozzle and use.
I have used this glue many times, most recently to glue a screw back into the kitchen cupboard hinge, as I had ripped it out by accident the other day. It is now working perfectly, the glue dried quickly and securely. The glue is a clear liquid, that comes out of the tube easily, simply squeeze the end of the tube and it flows out. It can be used on china, wood, metal, rubber, leather, card and most plastics. The glue dries within minutes, so you need to get the surfaces together quickly after applying the glue.
I have also used this to glue my sandal back together when the strap started to come apart. I cleaned the shoe, glued both sides, then used a peg to hold the shoe together while it dried. By the next day it was stuck tight and several weeks later I am still wearing my sandals with no problems.
The only problem I had was when I opened the first tube, it burst out and exploded all over my hand and jeans. I kept my fingers separate and quickly removed my jeans. The glue began to burn my leg and afterwards I tried to pick the glue off but it left a hole in my jeans! I left it to dry on my hand and picked it off after a few hours, but had I let my fingers touch each other for more than a second, they would have stuck quickly. The other tubes were fine and didn't explode, so I'm not sure what was wrong with the first one.
Available from Poundland stores and online for only £1 for 8 tubes.
