Gorilla Glue is a polyurethane adhesive that will stick to virtually every type of surface. It expands as it sets which makes it perfect for repairing porous surfaces as well as smooth surfaces. Gorilla Glue is commonly used to repair wooden furniture but its uses are endless and here are just a few ways other people are using Gorilla Glue.
Mosaic Tiling – Artists who create mosaic tile masterpieces and handymen who lay in tile keep Gorilla Glue in their toolboxes because Gorilla Glue puts tiles in place and once it sets they can’t be moved or shifted. Professional tile layers prefer Gorilla Glue when it comes to installing kitchen counter backsplashes.
Propellers – Airplane modelers swear by Gorilla Glue when it comes to working on propellers. Gorilla Glue is so strong that Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. carries it in stock with their other aircraft parts and pilot supplies.
Leather Watch Band Repair – I have used Gorilla Glue to repair my own leather watch band and I can tell you this stuff works. I thought I was going to have to buy a new watch band but now, 2 years later, it’s still holding.
Children – When you get tired of chasing small children around, reach for the Gorilla Glue. Gorilla Glue is guaranteed to stick your children to the walls and keep them there as long as you wish. (This has NOT been advised or promoted by Gorilla Glue inventors.)
Taxidermy – Taxidermists are finding that Gorilla Glue is the perfect adhesive for working with oily skin and posing the bodies. This adhesive will stick to fur, bones, feathers and skin alike. Gorilla Glue has become famous amongst taxidermists for gluing facial expressions in to place.
Hiking Boot Repairs – Hikers have discovered Gorilla Glue helps extend the life of their hiking boots because it adheres to rubber and is waterproof. On message boards for hikers, Gorilla Glue is recommended for footwear repairs regularly.
Bong Repairs – Another idea not condoned or recommended by the Gorilla Glue company. Potheads have taken to Gorilla Glue for repairing glass bongs and water pipes. This strong adhesive makes the perfect repair because of its waterproof capabilities but also because there is no toxic contamination once it has set.
Water Rockets – Rocketeers are excited about the adhesive quality of Gorilla Glue. They are now using Gorilla Glue to glue recycled plastic water bottles together in the making of their water rockets.
Magnets – Gorilla Glue is strong enough to glue two magnets, of opposite poles, together. One Engineering class used Gorilla Glue to glue magnets together to create a wind turbine and it worked.
Repair Walking Canes – Gorilla Glue is a quick fix for broken walking canes. The only downside to using Gorilla Glue on walking canes is that it needs to be reinforced with twine.
Volt Meter Holder – Gorilla Glue is so cool it has been used to make a wrist holder for volt meters. Electricians no longer have to hold their volt meters because they can make their own holders for a very low price.
Oven Door Handle Repairs – I went to take my blender down from a high cabinet and it fell and smashed into my oven door handle. The oven door handle is metal, coated with plastic and a section of it broke off. Gorilla Glue to the rescue; it repaired my oven door handle beautifully. Best of all it’s sandable, paintable and stainable so once the repair was made you couldn’t even see where the original break had been.
Bowling Ball Repairs – According to the Gorilla Glue website, the product can be used to repair bowling balls. Because it expands, it fills in the cracks.
Musical Instruments – Musicians are using Gorilla Glue to repair guitar necks, mandolins and other musical instruments. The glue holds up well and doesn’t change the tone of the instrument.
Whether you need to repair something made of wood, plastic, glass, leather or stone Gorilla Glue is the answer. You won’t find an easier to use product that works as great as Gorilla Glue.
