What’s the most impressive, or oddest thing you’ve ever fixed with duct tape (or something similar)?

      1. I think that batteries covers are a classic 😛 We have a remote control here that doesn’t even have the plastic cover anymore. We just tape the back of the remote, and change the tape when we change the batteries LOL

  1. It’s probably not that odd nor strange to use it as a temporary (or permanent) ‘car fixer’. I used it one summer to keep my side view mirror attached to the car (not Baby). I was at the bank and got too close to those damned post thingies which I’m uncertain of the use of. Watched the mirror peel right off, and dangle there by wires. 😳😨😰😭 Good old duct tape to the rescue!! I’ve used it or had it used on engines and hoses and to keep cardboard in place when a window got broken, and to keep the tail light ON the car…etc. Oh and the head liner inside my vintage 72 Monte Carlo when I had that. It was threatening to fall off and kept spreading this nasty dust all over everything. Good ol’ duct tape!! (Say! I ❤ this question so much, that I'm asking for permission to use it on an upcoming SYW!!

    1. OMG!! I asked the question, because I was thinking about a roadtrip I did with my boyfriend and my brother. We had broken a side view mirror just days before leaving Québec, and I duct taped the new one on for the trip. When we crossed the border in Detroit, the custom agents pulled us aside and searched E-VE-RY-THING… But the broken mirror. Which was very funny, because it would have been a great hiding place for drugs or anything illegal. I guess I had done a good job LOL

      And, of course Melanie, you can use the question… Always a pleasure to share 🙂 🙂 🙂

      1. Great!! 😀 It will ‘air’ Monday because I have a lot of ‘commenter’s questions’ and I guess that means it’s time for one of those SYW. Thank you! 🥰

    1. I think that a lot of people just go and throw away anything slightly damaged. I’m with you, Bee 🙂 If a little bit of tape will keep it working, why replace it??

    1. LOL I know… My crazy brain still wonder silly things (like ”all-the-time”), I usually try to keep my questions as serious as I can, but this one kept bugging me this morning… Mouahahahaha And just a tip, if you need to fix that arm again and need something stronger than duct tape. Check out Gorilla Tape. Black, AND heavy duty!
