We receive amazing Tough Stories all the time. We love them, and hope that you will too.
On a fishing trip in Canada, the canoe from our outfitter leaked from both ends, so badly we had to stop several times an hour to drain the boat. Our equipment got soaked. We pulled out our Gorilla Tape Camo and decided to try it. One long strip down the seam inside, and a couple strips on the seams at each end, and the canoe no longer leaked. Our gear stayed dry the rest of the week.
When we were looking over the canoe to apply the tape, there were actually several holes. Rental canoes sure get abused! We left the tape on for the next person, so they could have a dry boat. Gorilla Tape Camo gets a place in my travel kit from now on! - Tim
My wife went over one of those parking spot dividers - ripping my front bumper half off. After a couple of attempts of rigging it back together and it falling apart after a few days, I grabbed a roll of Gorilla Tape. I'd never used it before. I taped the bumper back in place (not overdoing it - I used approx. 10-15 ft of tape). This was about 5 months ago. To this day, it has survived 100+ degree weather in the Chicagoland area, 65 mph continuous highway speeds, and approx. 7 thunderstorms. I still have NEVER replaced or repaired the current tape job from 5 months ago. Thank you for ending my frustration, Gorilla Tape! - Joe
Extreme Use Of Gorilla Tape Helps Us Get A 3rd Place Win
Last night at the kinross mud bog, it was our second pass of the night, and we blew our fuel pump drive belt off and lost it. We didn't have any spare belts with us and still had one class left to race in. We were in the pits trying to find anything to fix it so we could race the last class we were in. We were not having much luck, then Matt says, "Hey! I got some Gorilla Tape!!" We all stop look at each other like - no way would that ever work! But why wouldn't we try it? So, we made a fuel pump drive belt out of some Gorilla Tape. The whole time, we were thinking that there was no way it was going to hold on to a motor turning 8000 RPMs. We put the Gorilla Tape belt on the motor, and test fired the engine. It seemed to hold and work fine. So, we raced our last class of the night and ended up taking 3rd place with a fuel pump drive belt made from Gorilla Tape! We were all blown away by how strong the tape is and couldn't believe it held, but it did. Gorilla Tape is absolutely amazing and we will never leave home without it again.
I purchased a used car for my son, and after the first day the rearview mirror came off the windshield. I went to the auto parts store and bought the correct glue, followed the directions, and that stuff lasted a day after the mirror was re-attached. I thought, let me try Gorilla Glue! And Gorilla Glue worked perfectly. About 1 month after, he rolled his car and the windshield/roof was crushed, but the mirror stayed attached. By the way - my son walked away without a scratch. - Carl
I have a 2004 Saturn Ion. The right side mirror broke off. My story is that a garage door post jumped out and hit the mirror! I did not want pay $150 for a replacement and we were leaving on a trip in 2 days. I put the mirror back on with Gorilla Tape, and 2 years later it is still there. - David
Axe Head Comes Off No More
I put Gorilla Glue on the old wood handle that goes in the metal axe head. Works better than the wood wedges did alone! I believe it is because this glue expands. Still good after a year of use! - Gary
4 Years And Still Holding
Hi my name is Dale. I was a master mechanic and the owner of a car dealership. And foreign cars and a towing company for 39 years. And now own a golf carts shop. I am always looking for some things better to help me in doing a job better. I came across a test in Popular Mechanics around 2008 with Gorilla Tape and one that I do not remember the name of it. The test was three concrete blocks with the three tapes hanging the blocks from a concrete wall. Duck Tape and the other brand did not hold very long but the Gorilla held for days. I had a big tree branch that was broken in half doing a storm and as a joke to myself I pull it back up and put Duck Tape around it to hold it in place. After about one month the Duck Tape broke so I went to the hardware store to get some Gorilla Tape to give it a try. Well, when I priced it was a little bit higher then Duck Tape so I did not buy it. After another month the Duck Tape failed again. I went back to the hardware store and got some Gorilla Tape. That was 4 years ago. My tree branch has seen 4 very bad snow storms and 3 years of very hot summer days of 100+ degrees of heat. You can see in the photo that the Gorilla Tape is still holding. After 4 plus years of VERY bad weather it is STILL HOLDING. If you look you will see that I did not put the Gorilla Tape very high up on the branch so there is a lot of weight and leverage on the Gorilla Tape. It would be hard for even a rope to hold up the branch. This is not the end of my story - my son-in-law had a tree break 3 years ago and I took some Gorilla Tape over to fix his tree, and it has been holding three years and counting. Now I have tried your Gorilla Glue also, and I will never try anything but your Gorilla products. Thank you for your great products! - Dale
We Held it Together to Arizona and Back!
A friend and I were driving cross-country from Ohio to Arizona (and back). As we started out, her van was making a very loud sound...so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk! She had just had the windshield replaced, so we knew that couldn't be the source of the noise. We made it to Missouri, then her battery died. While at the auto parts store, we thought of the idea to buy some Gorilla Tape. We thought maybe the sound was coming from the bumper which was damaged from when she had hit a deer a couple of months earlier. We taped the inside portion of the bumper, but as we took off, the sound was still there. So we stopped again and taped the outside of the bumper...and the sound was still there! Finally, we decided that maybe it was the windshield, and maybe it was installed incorrectly. So we stopped again and taped the perimeter of the windshield...and the sound STOPPED! We were very thrilled to finally have a quiet (and safe) ride. We went on to have more van problems, but at least we had a quiet ride thanks to the Gorilla Tape. Our motto for the 60 hour trip was "We held it together to Arizona and back!" - Kathy
I've had these large planters for 10 years or more, and last winter, one was hit by car in a snow storm. So disappointed! I was sure I would not be able to find a replacement. I used Gorilla Glue in a last ditch effort to save it, and I was sure it could not hold especially when I added water. This is a 10 gallon planter. I was wrong - Gorilla Glue saved the planter. This stuff has earned my vote for life. Hands down a must have for any household! - Thomas
Gorilla Super Glue Got Me Out Of A Bind!
I repaired my trailer tire valve stem in just minutes with Gorilla Super Glue. YouTube video link here: http://youtu.be/Zx0zKkl1Qco
Thanks again, I love your product! Brett L.
I live in Albuquerque. I use to have a Neon and didn't live in a great part of town. My car stereos were stolen twice at home and once at work. I was about to give up and resign myself to headphones. Instead, I used Gorilla Glue to glue the new stereo into the dash. I stopped locking my car and never had a problem again. I found evidence that people had been in the car but the stereo stayed. A few years later, the transmission died and the car went to the junk yard, but the stereo is still glued there. Gorilla Glue joined that car and that stereo in a union that no man can put asunder.
My daughters and I were heading home from our vacation on the Olympic Peninsula (Twilight Fans!) when we discoverd that the latch on our trunk lid had broke. Since we had been on vacation for over a week, our trunk was full of souvenirs. What if the lid popped up as we were driving and all our treasures were scattered down the highway?! So, how do you secure a trunk lid for 621 miles through rain, fog, sun, heat and wind? With 2 rolls of Gorilla Tape! We made it from Port Angeles, Washington, to Boise, Idaho, and the trunk lid held all the way. Thanks, Gorilla Tape!
I broke the carburetor on my roto tiller and needed to finish the job. The only thing I could think of to fix it was Gorilla Glue. I glued it back together and 24 hours later was back to tilling the soil. Thanks!
Build A Boat With Gorilla Glue
I had 2 sheets of 1/4" A-B plywood in my shop and became tired of walking around it all the time. I knew I needed a boat to fish with, so I built a 12' plywood boat with Gorilla Glue. It was built with the "Stitch and glue method". When I took it to the lake for it's maiden voyage, it held a 65 lb. marine battery, 2 men, our tackle and was powered by a 65 lb trolling motor that I repaired. It was a very successful maiden voyage. There were no leaks and the boat performed to perfection. I named it THER-A-P. When I moved to New Mexico after many fishing trips and no leaks, I gave the boat to my neighbor. They are still using it. It is now 3 years old and still hasn't had a leak.
After being out of the office for 2 years, I came back to a damaged chair. The person who had filled in for me while I was gone broke off the armrest. Instead of being able to rest my arm on the armrest, I had to rest my arm on the sharp metal piece that used to hold the armrest into place. After the office manager cut herself on my chair, she went out and bought Gorilla Glue. I had my doubts about the glue because it wasn't drying as fast as I had anticipated, and the armrest was still lose. After letting it set for the weekend, I came in Monday morning and the armrest was glued tight and not moving at all. It worked! Thanks, Gorilla Glue!
Gorilla Glue Repair
I have a 24 foot enclosed aluminum trailer, used for hauling personal items. After 3 trips from South Carolina to Oregon, I started to notice screws missing. I tried larger screws, but they did not work either, so I tried Gorilla Glue. I removed screws at problem points, sprayed water in the holes, put glue on the screw, and re-installed. It's still holding! Thanks for good, honest product.
Yes I have become a convert! During a recent move, my sister bought me a roll of Gorilla Tape. I had never used it and didn't think it was going to be anything special. WAS I WRONG!! I used it for all kinds of stuff that I couldn't do, and for things I really wanted to stay in place. For instance, I hung some curtains with it (the heavy room darkening kind). I used it to secure some rugs up the stairs. It is something I KNOW will stay in place & not let me down. It's a great product, I wish I'd heard about it before!
A Man And His Gorilla Tape
I bought a roll of 3 inch Gorilla Tough & Wide Tape to fix my solar pool cover, which worked out great. Preparing for vacation, I packed up my toolbox (which included my roll of Gorilla Tape), and we borrowed my friends motorhome to transport our group to North Carolina from Ohio. On our way down, I hit a big bump on the highway that jarred the motorhome so hard that it popped the upper left corner of the windshield out. We pulled over to the next rest stop and taped it back in place with Gorilla Tape. We also made other repairs: the storage door on motorhome wouldn't stay shut, so we taped it, and the rear air ride-on motorhome failed because a small linkage rod fell off, so we taped it back in place. Gorilla Tape got us home and saved vacation, thanks for great product. - Tim C.
Gorilla Tape Art
I love to paint and I recently finished a piece that was done on four flat canvases. I had no idea what to do with it or how to hang it. I got a big steel frame, but I still didn't know how to get the canvas to stick to the flat steel. Boom - it hit me! Gorilla Tape! I love it...the piece is now hanging on my wall. The tape adds some awesome flare!
The Toughest Blanket on Planet Earth
So what happens when you tweet with the Gorilla Glue folks about what their product can do? You get challenged. Recently I posed the question about what would happen if you made a blanket out of Gorilla Tape. This just set my mind to work. I figured out that it would need to have some sort of fabric backing so it could be comfortable as well as durable. After searching around, I settled on some Green Fleece fabric. At that point, I only knew about the original Black Gorilla Tape. Oh, the joy when I found out that they also have Gorilla Tape Camo!
Why on Earth would you need a blanket as tough as Gorilla Tape? For terrain, that's why! My family likes to attend events with lawn seating, and how many times have you plopped down a blanket only to discover that the ground is not REALLY that dry?? Soggy bottoms are no fun!
So I set to work creating a ground-cover resting spot that would be rugged enough to withstand ground use as well as protect you from what is underneath.
Two Rolls of Gorilla Camo Tape, and one roll of black Gorilla Tape later, I am left with a blanket that I could probably take into Combat! Thanks Gorilla Glue for creating a tape that brought about The Toughest Blanket on Planet Earth!
The Case of the Broken Vase
My nephew broke my grandma's favorite vase and my mom couldn't bear to tell her, but Gorilla Glue fixed it up and she hasn't said anything yet!
Marriage is Tough, But Gorilla Glue Rises To The Repair Challenge
I bought a house before I married my wife. There were little things here and there that needed attention, just like at the beginning of any marriage. Gorilla Glue was there to help. It was there to tack that torn linoleum down in the kitchen after moving the fridge into place damaged it. It was there to help prevent our cheap countertops from splintering due to water damage. Gorilla Glue works great on wood projects, re-attaching bathroom towel bars, repairing a wooden post and a door frame, and attaching reflective house numbers to the siding. I can't really think of many jobs that Gorilla Glue can't fix (except maybe for making my wife talk to me after I have ticked her off). Gorilla Glue gets the job done!
A Monumental Task
To make the Idyllwild Town Monument, I had to glue four huge trees together, using Gorilla Glue, the only product I'd trust for a valuable work of art that is intended to last for decades. Gorilla Glue made it happen. I thank you, the town of Idyllwild, California, thanks you, and the many tourists who have their pictures taken in front of the monument thank you. Whatever did people do before Gorilla Glue?
Gorilla Tape Saves Chrismas
It was three weeks before the Christmas in 2008, and my Wildlife Removal business was slow. Money was tight and the weather was brutal, with freezing rain, snow and cold temperatures. As I was backing up my truck one morning, I had poor visability and misjudged the distance, and crashed into a stone wall. I had cracked the driver side tail light assembly. The light still worked, however, if moisture got inside I would have no turn signal or rear light. I knew the assembly would be expensive and did not want to spend my Christmas savings on it. So, I reached for my always-present roll of Gorilla Tape. I placed the tape all around the assembly in double stands. I checked on the tape job everytime I stopped to make sure the light still worked and that moisture hadn't gotten in. Days went by without a problem which lead to weeks. Finally, in March of 2009, I removed the tape and replaced the assembly. Thanks, Gorilla Tape!
I work with NFL football teams, bands (like Duran Duran, Matt and Kim, Ferry Corsten), wineries, etc., but in my spare time I LOVE to fish and boat. I don't have much time to work on the boat so occasionally there are issues. Last night I checked the weather and it looked amazing for today on Buzzards Bay (I have to pick my days with a 14 foot skiff) so I prepared all of my fishing tackle, bait, etc. I went down to check on the boat and THERE WAS A LEAK!! OH NO!! I had no time to buy a marine repair kit so I grabbed my roll of gorilla tape and TAPED UP THE HOLE IN THE BOAT! IT WORKED!!! I fished ALL DAY TODAY and it NEVER LEAKED. All I did was use the black gorilla tape. I didn't even know it was waterproof. I AM BLOWN AWAY by your product. The marine repair kits are a pain and expensive. All I need is tape!! I have amazing photos of the fish I caught thanks to you!
Best, Alan S.
Tie Rod On Medium Duty Truck
Our tie rod fell off the balljoint on a medium duty truck. Rather than call a tow truck, we popped it back in and wrapped it several times with Gorilla Tape. We made it 27 miles to the mechanic! Great stuff!!
When You Absolutely, Positively, Have To Fish
Last year, a friend was visiting me from Canada for a couple of days. He absolutely, positively, had to do a days fishing while he was here. Off to the lake for stalking of the wild trout we go! Upon arrival, he pulled his rod out of the travel tube to discover it was in 3 pieces instead of 2. Disappointment filled the air as we only had 2 rods with us and his was the second. I handed him my rod and set him to casting to his hearts content. 10 minutes and some Gorilla Tape later I joined him in seeking to reduce the trout population of the lake. It held up all day, and is still in usable condition a year later after sitting outside through an Idaho winter.
Gorilla Tape saves the day.
Men's shoes often wear in the heel area long before the sole or exterior are ready for the dumpster. Mine are no exception, as I typically wear a hole in the heel area, sides, bottom, back, etc. I have repaired and salvaged many extra miles with the superior adhesion and flexibility of Gorilla Tape over the worn-through areas. GREAT STUFF for many repairs!!!
Thanks, Clint M.
Super Glue, Super Hold
While rinsing the dishes one evening, I played catch with a clear plastic 2.5 measuring cup and lost. It came down on the edge of the granite counter top and cracked from the bottom to the rim near the pour spout. Normally, that would be the end of it, but I had just purchased some Gorilla Super Glue - the Impact Tough Gel Formula type. I thought, why not give it a try on this? That was about three years ago. The cup is still in service for both hot and cold liquids. I was really careful the first time I poured boiling hot soup stock into it (in the sink the first time.) It held perfectly. Thanks for a great product!
The Penny On The Sidewalk
In January 2010, I Gorilla Glued a new 2010 cent to my sidewalk to see how long it would stay. As the weather was cold, I was not sure if it would work. That year, we had a record snow fall and shoveled our sidewalk numerous times. Many people have tried to pry it loose. As of May 2012, that cent, although very weathered, has remained in place. I have enclosed a photo of the cent. You have a great product, which has stood the test of time, weather, and people.
My Broken Gun Stock
I was given a rifle with a broken gun stock (broken in half!!!), and I thought I'd try this Gorilla Glue just for the heck of it, seeing how I didn't want to deal with the other glues that I knew would work (I didn't want to deal with the time limits & just other issues.) So, I tried this on a broken drawer on a desk & was shocked at the results!!! So, here I go & try on this broken stock on this rifle and, I swear to God that the repair is stronger than the original stock!
Back On The Road
We traveled to Wilmington, OH for an East Coast Timing Associations race. It is a standing start mile run for mile per hour only. There is no ET. On our way home, we lost a trailer wheel bearing. From many previous racing trips, we carry extra trailer parts. Well, this time it wollered out the outer area where the race goes leaving it sloppy - it wouldn't last very long, but it would get Floyd and I off the four lane road. We needed something to make a force fit from the bearing race and the hub. We didn't have any metal to make a shim. Gorilla Tape to the rescue! We wrapped the bearing race in Gorilla Tape and forced in to the hub. We stopped every now and then to check it. We made it 500 more miles home with the wheel and hub in place. Thank You, Gorilla Tape!
We have been using Gorilla Tape in our racing for a long time. When we put the parts on the race car for a high speed run we tape up the seams to keep them from catching air. On the bottom of the car it is smooth with several panel joints. We tape these joints to keep smooth. When we race at the Bonneville salt flats, it keeps the salt from coming in as bad. They never come off even after a 250 mph run!
Gorilla Tape Saves Me and My Boat Engine
A friend and I were testing my new 21' cabin cruiser on Flathead Lake (a very large lake) when I noticed that the boat wouldn't plane right and seemed to have a loss of power. It has a Chevy 305 Marine V8. I lifted the engine housing cover to find that we had taken on about 300 gallons of water. After we had turned on and pumped the bilge, we discovered that there was a piece of the cast iron water jacket missing about 6'' long and 4'' wide and when running the motor it was pumping water straight into the boat. We started taking inventory of what we had to make a repair and found that all we had was a roll of Gorilla Tape. I said, "Well, they say this will stick to anything." So, we apprehensively started taping the hole shut. To our amazement, it actually stuck to the cast iron engine block! We had our doubts as to if it would hold. Once we started the engine and built up some water pressure...IT DID!!! It leaked some water but, the bilge pump kept pace with it easily. We had about 15 miles of water travel to get back to the boat ramp and that one application of Gorilla Tape held all the way. I told my buddy that I had to find the manufacturer and tell them this story. Now I'm a true believer in your product and tell my story to all my amazed friends. I'll always have a roll with me and plan on buying a roll for everyone on my Christmas list! Kudos to all at Gorilla Tough (Gorilla Glue Company) for the great engineering and manufacturing of such a great product. It can be a life saver, at times!
Greatfully, Bud K.
A mechanic tried to pull off a door panel on a 2000 Saturn. He thought it came off in two sections, but he didn't look or check the manual. He ended up pulling it in half. They couldn't fix it without it rattling! When I got it home, I Gorilla Tough Epoxied (with Gorilla Epoxy) it silent. It has stayed quiet for good!
I have had this old, beat-up leather chair that i acquired from a restaurant in Chicago. I live in the Greater Cincinnati area now. I told myself that I was going to get it re-upholstered, because it seems to be a well-built chair and deserved to be restored somehow. So, after years of looking at this chair, shoving it into corners and covering it with blankets, I decided that I was going to do it myself. I had approximately 3/4 of a Tough & Wide roll of Gorilla Tape and went to work. Seven and a half rolls later, I had the chair and an ottoman covered! It looks awesome and it is virtually indestructible! I plan on doing a sofa next!
Thank you for making such an outstanding product!
I use Gorilla Glue exclusively in the assembly of custom hardwood toolboxes and jewelry boxes. I do not use any type of metal fasteners in construction. I only use mitered corners and/or dovetails, finger joints or cross dovetails. I like the open time I get with Gorilla Glue, which allows squaring of the box during the clamping.
Tie Rod on Tractor Fell Apart
We were hauling manure when the tie rod feel apart. We used Gorilla Tape to hold it back together and were able to load another 30 loads. It got the job done! That is some good stuff!
Now I can Mow Again
Let me start off by saying that the John Deere lawn tractor I purchased a few years back is a great machine. The best part/selling point was the cup holder, which is strictly used for a cold soda. The only thing I would improve on it is that it needs a shock or strut under the holder to prevent spilling and foaming. In my yard, which requires an acre of mowing, there is a row of pines that line the road. The blades have sheered off the tops of the shallow roots pretty well. So well, in fact, that the shroud for the mulcher parted ways with one of the fasteners. Now, as you can probably figure out, a factory replacement part is out of the question. Really, I am just too tight to part with $60. Here is where the Gorilla Tape comes in. I fastened the shroud to the mower deck with two foot long pieces of Tape. I would not be writing this if your product did not deliver exactly what it claims. Great job indeed, as the shroud hasn't budged in over a month of mowing. Can I be in a commercial when you feel the need to develop another one? Thanks and God Bless.
The Glue Tree
Last spring, I had a beautiful Forest Pansy Redbud tree that was overloaded with bloom. It was beautiful! Later, when the blooms dropped and the leaves appeared, it was just as full and lovely as any tree in the neighborhood. Then, one weekend, a rain storm came through, bringing with it very high winds. To my dismay, when the storm was over and I checked my little tree, I found that, because of the heavy branches, the wind had split the trunk down the middle. My husband was ready to cut it down when I told him I wanted to try to save it. I had an idea. I bound the trunk together using some wire, then I trimmed the branches way back. Finally, I poured Gorilla Glue from the top to the bottom. I used a whole bottle! My husband told me I was crazy and that I was wasting my time. I figured I had nothing to lose.
Well, this is my tree this year! It has survived, and appears to be growing back together with the help of the glue and the wire. Even though the one side doesn't have as much bloom as the other, it is obvious that both sides of the tree are alive and both sides bloomed again this year. I truly believe that the glue helped the trunk grow back together and protected the little tree as it was healing. We now refer to this as "the glue tree" rather than a Redbud. My husband just shakes his head when I say, "See, I told you it would work!"
2nd & 3rd Graders Stack them High
A group of 2nd and 3rd graders from a small Maine town made a big splash by winning 1st Place at their state's Destination Imagination competition in March. Their task was to take some balsa wood and any glue of their choice and make a structure that would hold as much weight as possible, as well as come up with a story to aid in that task.
Well, long story short, they did just that! They crushed the competition with Gorilla Glue by a whopping 635 lbs! The 2nd Place team's structure only held 150 lbs. Their next task is to go to Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Destination Imagination global competition! They will try to bring home the gold! Stay tuned to see how they do!
On a side note, at the global competition they will get a chance to see exactly how much the structure can hold as there is no limit to the amount of weight that can be added. Look what a group of 2nd and 3rd graders can do - what can you do with your Gorilla Glue?
No More Splinters
We bought a 40 year old house. The hardwood floors need re-doing, but until we can do that, we have filled in cracks with Gorilla Glue. We let it sit overnight, then scraped off excess and sanded it. The BEST part besides no more splinters in our feet is...a little dot does a lot!
I am a handicapped woman who goes through life in an electric wheelchair. Some times this causes some destruction of my home. I have fixed pulled-up carpeting with Gorilla Glue (fraying and all). I have bumped into and pulled off door hinges & cabinet door knobs and moldings, all of which I fixed with Gorilla Glue.
I also have a very hyper Australian Shepard dog who loves to play fetch. I put together old juices bottles filled with small pieces of PCP piping and little chunks of wood to give the bottle weight, and he chews on the screw top and breaks it off in no time at all. Now I glue the tops on with Gorilla Glue and his toy bottles last much longer then they used to.
I also have fixed the armrests on my wheel chair when the vinyl has torn or frayed. I use the Gorilla Tape and the armrests look brand new. The tape sticks exceptionally well and does not leave behind any sticky residue on the surface of armrests.
Your products are the bomb! I tell everyone I know about how well they work and how they fix EVERYTHING. Thanks so much for Gorilla Products. - Linda
Gorilla Tape Cleans Up !!!
More than two years ago, I purchased an expensive new swimming pool cleaner. Shortly after installing the device, we left on a three week vacation. During this time, the pool sweep got tangled on the steps of the pool, and the constant rocking of the bottom of the sweep against the edge of the steps wore two large holes in the base of the sweep.
As a short-term fix, I applied Gorilla Tape as patches to the holes. And now, after more than two years of constant use, the Gorilla Tape is still adhered to the sweep!
I recently replaced the tape with a new Gorilla Tape patch, but a huge 'THANKS' to Gorilla Tape for protecting my investment for the past two years and for the upcoming swimming season!
Success with Gorilla Tape: after my sunroof exploded while on the highway and finding out that it would be very expensive to replace ($1350), I decided to give up on the sunroof and cover it with a sheet of plexiglass and some Gorilla Tape (under $10)! 8 Months later after rain and ice, it is still doing its job - NO LEAKS! Thanks, Gorilla!
On the first day of a three week whitewater kayaking trip to Corsica, I put a hole in the bottom of my kayak. I put Gorilla Tape on the bottom of the kayak and ran it for the next 18 days. Three days before heading home, I split the nose of the same kayak. I applied more Gorilla Tape and finished the trip. If not for Gorilla Tape, my 3 weeks boating in Corsica would have ended on Day 1! THANK YOU!
Las Vegas Rescue
During the week of March 19, 2012, we were in Las Vegas for a business trade show. We had driven over from Huntington Beach in our black Lincoln Navigator filled with display materials for the trade show. On the first morning, we were exiting the hotel parking lot and another car made a sharp right turn and hit our left front bumper, fender, light. The damage looked bad. Fortunately, our son-in-law, Russell, was also in the area, and he helped us put the damaged parts back together with the Gorilla Tape we had in the trade booth supplies. Russell did a fantastic job of making the vehicle look almost new and completely drivable - all with Gorilla Tape. The black tape and black paint almost matched. We were able to drive the Navigator home later in the week without any problems. Thank you, Gorilla Tape!
GeoCaching With Gorilla Glue
GeoCaching is an outdoor activity where you use a GPS to find caches hidden by other people. My wife and I were given a challenge to find a cache, but we had to use a boat to get to it. We went out to the farm to get my father's old fishing boat that had not been on the water in years, only to find that it had a hole punctured in the bottom of it the size of a baseball. So, we stopped by the hardware store, purchased some Gorilla Tape, taped it up, and went out on the lake to get the cache. The only place that old boat of my dad's didn't leak was where we had taped it up with the Gorilla Tape! Ha ha ha! It saved the day and survived the GeoCache challenge. Thanks!
Gorilla Tape Goes To Space
For my daughter's 4th grade science project, we decided to send a weather balloon, with a camera attached, to the edge of space. I could not risk the camera/GPS package opening and dropping my equipment to Earth, so I secured everything with Gorilla Tape. The balloon went to almost 90,000 feet, and then drifted back to Earth, landing in a Wisconsin marsh. When we found the package, not so much as one corner of Gorilla Tape had lifted! It went to the edge of space, withstood 100 mph jet stream winds, and temperatures as cold as -50 degrees - and it held strong. You rock, Gorilla Tape!
Great for temporary repairs to tears and snags on parachute canopies. I know it works - I am the former Aero Club of B.C. SkyDiving Instructor (Canada D 51 Expert Parachutist Rating).
Patch Hole In My Work Boots
While I was building a deck, I got a hole in my boots. There was still a lot of life left in the soles, so I tried (unsuccessfully) to patch them with construction adhesive. Then I tried Gorilla Glue with a leather patch from a different pair of old boots. It`s been over a month and it's still going strong. It`s like I have a steel-toed boot!
Gorilla Glue Takes Punishment
I love to cook. When my wife and I got married in December of 2008, we were given a lot of cooking tools. One of them was a plastic whisk that was so cheap I literally only had to shake it in my hand and it broke in two! I glued it back together with Gorilla Glue. Now three and a half years later and who knows how many times in a high heat dishwasher, it is still in one piece with no sign of coming apart. Great product.
Cub Scout Bridge Contest
Here is our son and his bridge in his Cub Scout Bridge Contest. The bridge held 261 lbs. and he won 1st Place! We had to stop - we wanted to add more weight, but the Cubmaster was afraid it would topple. It was holding strong! Thank you! Our son was 6 feet tall and proud, and everyone was in awe!
Long Term Fix
I am a kayak fisherman, and have quite a few buddies who also enjoy the sport. Landing on sandy beaches, hitting rocks, etc. are occupational hazards of our sport. On a trip a while back, my buddy's boat started leaking. We fixed it immediately with Gorilla Tape, continued fishing and basically forgot about it. The thought was to find a more permanent fix later. "Later" turned out to be three years later! The Tape did the work for all that time, and the only reason it was ever taken off was that the very ends started to curl up a little. Gorilla Tape and Glue are truly great products, with no peers!
Dirt Bike Oil Drain Bolt Rounded Off
I purchased a used 250 dirt bike for my girlfriend. When performing the first oil change, the oil drain bolt was stripped and rounded off. I tried every trick - different shaped sockets, applied heat, specialized wrenches, rubber band friction - nothing worked. The only options left were to drill the bolt out or try grinding the bolt's shape back, which are difficult to do. On my way back to my work bench, I saw my Gorilla Glue on the shelf. Ding! I glued the socket to the bolt and let it set overnight. With many prayers, I woke up the next morning, and VOILA! - the Glue held the socket and bolt together!
Guitar Repair with Gorilla
My beloved 1950's Gibson LG-2 guitar came crashing down from a coat hanger. There was a piece of leather tied to two tuners, which came untied in 2006. The headstock was completely cracked along three tuners, which came off. I was able to fix it all with Gorilla Glue. There's a photo of it still looking good taken in February, 2011, and it is still going strong today. Thanks, Gorilla!
Preventing a Blow Out
I ordered new tires for my BMW M3, but they had not arrived yet. One of my tires had worn very badly and had the metal cords showing through on the inside edge of the tire. So, I figured that, to prevent a blow out before the new tires arrived, I would wrap my favorite Tape around it a few times. Over a 100 miles later, the Gorilla Tape was still holding up and did the job of preventing a blow out. Awesome!
My soles of my favorite pair of work boots came off. The first thing that crossed my mind was "Gorilla Glue". I took them to a boot and shoe repair shop about 25 minutes from my home. They called me in about a week and a half to inform that my boots were ready. Two days later and $10.50 poorer, I was on the phone with them again about the soles coming loose. I brought them back as they requested, and they tried again. The next time I wore them, the same thing happened, and the soles came loose. I still hadn't learned my lesson.
I began searching the Internet for other boot and shoe repair shops near the rural area in which I live. I found one about 30 minutes in the opposite direction. I dropped the boots off on a Wednesday and the gentleman told me that he would be done with them that Saturday. The Monday after, I returned to find the store closed. I visited again Tuesday, and saw a sign on the door that indicated they would be out until 3:00 p.m. I found this odd because their closing time was 3:30 p.m. At any rate, I got my boots about two weeks later at a cost of about $12.00, and, you guessed it, the first time that I wore them the soles came loose again.
That is when I finally decided to take matters into my own hands. I got out my Gorilla Glue and wiped the dried remnants from its top. I applied it between my boots and their soles, and several days later, my boots are still holding up. Lesson learned.
The front bumper on our 1998 Durango started rusting several years ago and looked pretty bad. I used Gorilla Tape on it, and it's still attached! That's through several years of Northwest Chicago winters and many, many car washes. It's saved us a lot of money, not having to replace the bumper (my wife has been unemployed since June 2011)! Thanks for your great product!
I would like to report that Gorilla Tape is the only thing holding my car, a 1994 Suzuki Sidekick, together! I have even washed the car in the car wash, and the Tape is still holding. In the rain, the Tape is still holding. Through snow and ice, the Tape is still holding. Because I can't bear to part with my little Sidekick, I sing the praises of Gorilla Tape!
2 Years Later
I bought a new car in 2008, and in 2009, I hit a cat and it knocked my fog light out (broke the housing). A replacement was $210.00, and I didn't want to spend that much on a new assembly for the fog light. Instead, I went out and bought a bottle of Gorilla Glue, and applied as the directions stated, clamped it, and let it dry overnight.
Two years and 80,000 miles later, its still holding strong! I'm simply amazed that its held up this long, especially through rain, snow, road debris...also I ran over a deer, and a can of paint hit my front bumper after I glued the fog light back in place, and it didn't budge! Awesome product!
The Rear View Mirror
I had attempted to remount my rear view mirror in my truck three times prior using the obvious rear view mirror adhesive from the auto parts stores, and on time #3, I thought I had finally gotten it to stay. I had not touched it for several weeks after the mounting, then one day I had finally said the mirror is not quite where it needs to be, and I attempted to adjust it. It came off in my hand, like the other 2 times prior.
Skeptical, as I usually am, when my brother said try Gorilla Glue, I said if the adhesive that was made for it will not work, why will Gorilla Glue? He said, "what do you have to lose?" So I did try it. I used the Gorilla Glue Precision Glue Pen, and I used one drop. Skeptical of success, I let it sit for two days, the button taped to the windshield.
I am here to say that when I removed the tape and mounted the mirror, it stayed even after adjusting it. Just when I was about to tear my hair out, along came a suggestion that lead to success. If you have a similar situation, I can say honestly that it worked for me, it probably will work for you too. Give it a shot, what do you have to lose?
Gorilla is the Word that Ought to Follow
Ever blown out too much drywall, plaster or mortar installing plastic anchors, or even molly and toggle anchors when putting up curtains or hanging stuff? Gorilla Glue, applied to an undersized piece of wood, anchor or screw, will fill the gap and hold things tight. Since the hole is already there, spray it with a couple of spritzes of water, coat the bottom two thirds of the item to be inserted with a good coverage of Gorilla Glue, and set it in the hole. Hold temporarily with tape if necessary. In Gorilla Glue's cure time, which in my experience is better to leave it overnight, the glue will expand into the recesses and also come toward the wall front, locking in the anchor right where you want it. You can then drill a pilot and hang pretty much anything you intended to hang in the first place. It's a one-time fix, but none have failed me yet. If on brick or block, I pre-drill a pilot hole in a wood dowel and insert the dowel. Once set, a screw put into the pilot hole seems solid as its surroundings.
My 101st use for Gorilla products
It was a typical Monday morning at work. Anything that could go wrong did. I was putting a transmission in a truck, and as I squatted down to pick up a tool, I heard "riiiiiip". I stood up and realized I just split my pants.
After stapling them together, they only lasted 5 minutes. Then, I thought I'd try some Gorilla Tape. That lasted until 8 p.m. that night.
I just wanted to say thanks for making excellent products and saving me some embarrassment.
Second in County Science Fair with Gorilla Tape
I am a seventh grade student in Wilmington, NC. I just competed in the county science fair and placed second in the Engineering category. My project compared several different brands of duct tape. It showed that Gorilla Tape far out performed other tested brands. Here's the conclusion from my project:
“Out of the six tapes that were tested, different tapes were better for different jobs. The best duct tape for stickiness tests, that won by a long shot, was Gorilla Tape which was able to hold 1.134 kilograms of weight for over 24 hours. The second best duct tape for stickiness is Nashua duct tape. It held 1.134 kilograms of weight for only 4 minutes and 20 seconds. Also competing, but made third place for stickiness, was 3M duct tape. It held 1.134 kilograms of weight for a pitiful 29 seconds. For the strength tests the results where a little closer. The first place prize for strength goes to Gorilla Tape. It held 52.163 kg before snapping, doubling the brand in second place. The second place winner for strength was ShirTeck duct tape, it held 31.751 kg before snapping. In third place for strength tests was Duck duct tape that held 20.412 kg before it snapped. This information clearly suggests that Gorilla Tape is a lot better than any of the other duct tapes tested. This information proves that my hypothesis is incorrect because The Gorilla Glue Company did very well in making their adhesive, their thick outer plastic layer, and they weaved the cotton mesh twice as tight as all of the other duct tapes tested.”
Thanks, Eli W.
P.S. I like the Gorilla Fingers
Gorilla Super Glue Plays Basketball
My kids play with their basketball almost every day. So often, in fact, that the leather was peeling back along one of the seams. I tried Gorilla Super Glue to reattach the leather. I wasn’t sure if this would work, but it is what I had on hand so I gave it a shot. After many seasons, the quick repair still held tight.
Unfortunately, the basketball was left in the driveway and run over, meeting its final demise. And still, the loose flap that I secured almost a year ago still held tightly. Thanks for a super product that helps make me a super mom.
Wood Glue Rocks
My wife Debbie brought home new Gorilla Wood Glue for me to try out. It was perfect timing for a project I had in mind – my grandchild's new rocking horse. The glue was easy to work with, and I have to say, it is yet another great addition to the Gorilla brand! We are looking forward to entertaining our grandchildren with this rocking horse for many years to come.
Thanks, Richard M.
Wood Glue Beats Chest
This curly maple chest was built from scratch, using nothing but Gorilla Glue and ebony nails. This was the first time I have used Gorilla Wood Glue exclusively. It worked great! I think the photo speaks for itself.
Thanks, Eric S.
Son Repairs Father's Redwood Canoe
In 1989, my father built a canoe out of a redwood log. The canoe was a symbol of life as it was used to fish out of and to ferry people across river, lagoon and ocean. It was also used as a ceremonial canoe in the White Deer Skin Dance.
The log that was used was a bit damaged, and soon after completion a crack began to develop. Over the next 17 years, the crack worsened. Eventually, it reached 16 feet, out of 18 feet. At this time, it was deemed a safety hazard.
Instead of throwing such a special piece away, several people decided to take on the task of repairing the canoe for others to enjoy for years to come.
Originally, we planned to restore the canoe and never actually put it in the water again, but thanks to Gorilla Glue, our whole vision changed. Through an extensive process, we were able to repair the crack with 150 redwood dowels and a lot of Gorilla Glue.
Thank you for making such a wonder product. I just can't get over the strength that Gorilla Glue has, it is amazing. We were able to extend the life of a condemned canoe and now it is used every year during the Brush Dance held by the Yurok Tribe at Patrick's Point State Park in Northern California. Thanks, Axel L.
Gorilla Tape Protects Underwater Receivers
I just returned from a dive trip that went out to Cocos Island, located off the Costa Rican Pacific Coast. This expedition was offered by a non-profit organization that is conducting shark research.
The research conducted on this trip involved studying shark behavior by anchoring receivers to the ocean floor at several shark cleaning locations and then actually tagging hammerhead sharks with transmitters. The idea is to pick up the transmitter signals from the tagged sharks when they are in the area of the receivers. On this trip we also recovered receivers, downloaded data, and changed out the batteries since they had been under water 6-10 months between servicing.
The reason I am writing is because they use Gorilla Tape to protect the receivers from barnacle build up. They wrap the receivers in tape so the barnacles grow on the tape and not the body of the receiver, insuring that the data access port remains clean and they can easily open the unit up.
The picture to the left is someone unwrapping the tape from the receivers that had been underwater for eight months! I was amazed the tape held. I wanted you all to know about this application and organization and how Gorilla Tape is helping them out. Thanks, Ric L.
Gorilla Wood Glue in Victory Lane
I live in Manlius, NY, home of Stickley Furniture. Every 4th of July they sponsor a race where you must use a chair with a rider and spring approximately 200 meters.
This year I designed a chair made primarily of wood glued together with Gorilla Wood Glue and wheels mounted on the wood. We had a design change 12 hours before the race and I glued a new 'axle' on the chair. My team was concerned the glue would not hold, but after only 5 hours we used the chair in a time trial.
The next day we won the race and received a Stickley chair as a gift from the factory. I told everyone about Gorilla Wood Glue--they were impressed! Thanks for a great product. It was the cheapest "ingredient" but the most important piece of our design.
300 Bottles + Gorilla Glue = 1 Amazing Clock
My father and I built a clock using 300 beer bottles and Gorilla Glue. The clock was built at Stanley Clockworks, which is a father and son operation that makes fine and unusual clocks. The clock is now on display at the National Association of Watch and Clock Collector's Museum in Columbia, PA.
The Bottle Clock took five months to build. It is 20 feet long and its biggest gear is 5 foot in diameter with 300 intermeshing beer bottles. The time is read from left to right: hours (red), minutes (blue), and seconds (yellow).
We washed and cleaned the bottles from the local recycling center and fitted them with a bolt we had turned down to fit the neck of the bottle. We attached the bolt to the bottle using epoxy. However, we found that the epoxy set too quickly and I couldn't get many bolts attached on the bottles without constantly remixing.
We turned to Gorilla Glue because we didn't have to mix the glue and could do as many bottles as we wanted, put the cap on, then come back and do more when we were ready.
The clock is pretty impressive and it wouldn't been so great without Gorilla. Vince Stanley
Gorilla Tape Travels through Alaska
Our family drives the Alaska Highway every year. This past year, the road was the worst we have seen in twenty years. The travels were rough on our RV and we had to make some repairs along the way.
The skin of our door came off, so we got a bit creative and made a design out of the Gorilla Tape-it was functional, and somewhat decorative! On the front, we had to use both Gorilla Glue and Gorilla Tape to patch some holes in the metal. We also used both the glue and the tape on the side seams that had begun to split. While we might have been a site on the road, we were happy to be moving. Without a doubt, Gorilla saved our trip from our home in Oregon to Alaska, all 3200 miles. We would have been out a lot of time and money had we not had Gorilla Glue and Tape with us. So, thank you for your great products. They saved our trip and we’ve told everyone about it. We’ll never travel without a nice stock of both. Thanks again! The Smiths
Black Bear Tough!
We live in the foothills of Mount Hood just nine miles from Government Camp in Oregon. As expected, we have always had forest animals like deer, elk, raccoons, skunks, coyotes, and even an occasional black bear passing through our property.
I have built several feeders for the smaller animals like squirrels and birds and I have always used Gorilla Glue for these projects to hold up in the outdoor environment.
You can imagine our surprise when my wife and I looked out one day and saw this young black bear standing on the feeder. The feeder has held tough and other than a few claw marks, this feeder is as strong as the day I built it, thanks to Gorilla Glue. Greg B.
Our 83-year-old fan!
We think this letter is truly exceptional! It just goes to show, you are never too old or too young to try something new. We just love the letter's simplicity and sincerity! A big thank you to Archer from all of us here at The Gorilla Glue Company!
Water Rockets and Gorilla Tape attempt World Record!
This story features Gorilla Tape being used to connect water rockets to their launch pads! (These water rockets are usually made from plastic soft drink bottles and are used to teach the principles of aeronautics as well as to entertain!). 250 water rockets were launched simultaneously on June 19th, 2009 in an attempt to win a world record! This took place in The Netherlands and we are eagerly awaiting the results! This is certainly not something we hear about everyday! Now read on...
There are some jobs where plain duct tape just isn't enough. In water rocketry it is always difficult to attach the tie-wraps that hold the water rockets securely in place. The connection has to be able to survive the pulling force of around 45 to 175 psi caused by the pressurized rocket. It also has to be able to survive the damage caused by jets of water being propelled from the rockets which normally cause the tape's adhesive to dissolve. The tape keeping the rockets in place has to cope with this pressure and water damage launch after launch.
Then we discovered Gorilla Tape, which serves perfectly for the connection. Last year we performed a test using 102 water rockets, and thanks to the toughness of Gorilla Tape, we didn't have any issues with the tie-wrap connection! Boyan S. from "Gotta Launch", The Hague, The Netherlands
Las Vegas Architect hits jackpot with Gorilla Glue Chair!
I’m an architect in Las Vegas, Nevada and with the current state of the economy have a little extra time on my hands.
During a site visit for a construction I noticed a pile of scrap 1-1/8” tongue and grove plywood that was on its way to the dump. I enjoy finding ways to recycle materials and couldn’t let the plywood just get thrown away.
With a little bit of creativity, time and a lot of Gorilla Glue a chair was born. The chair had to have structural qualities much like a glue-laminated beam because the back rest cantilevers over the rear leg. Gorilla Glue was the only choice for me on this job.
I will be starting the next chair as soon as the design is finalized. Sincerely, Michael W. AIA
1924 Ford Model T - a two and a half year project of love (and Gorilla Glue)!
Two years ago I finished building a 1924 Ford Model T with a Depot Hack body (i.e. a station wagon). It took two and a half years to complete the project.
I researched what type of glue I wanted to use for the wood joints and decided to try Gorilla Glue. Mortise and tenon joints were used through out the body. Some biscuit and lap joints were also used. The glue worked very well on all the joints.
I liked how nice and easy it was to sand and remove the glue once the joints dried. It didn't chip out any of the wood unlike other glues.
This is the third season of driving it and all the joints look good yet. It's been in the rain a few times so the water hasn't affected the joints. It's a great product and I tell other people about it. Shawn G.
SF-8: Create Speed with Dedication, Hard Work and LOTS of Gorilla Glue
My dad and I set out to break the world speed record for an Electric Styrofoam Radio Controlled Airplane. Once we passed the 100 mph mark, strength became a major issue. The glues available at the hobby store were not up to the task. Most of the stronger glues that we tested, either melted Styrofoam, or didn’t adhere one of the many components that we were using for strengthening very thin Styrofoam parts.
Our first experience with Gorilla glue was the Dries White polyurethane. We were adding carbon fiber rods to very thin Styrofoam wings in hopes of making them strong enough to withstand 100+ Mph stresses. The amazing glue not only adhered to both mediums, but actually hardened and strengthened the Styrofoam near the glue sight! Soon we found uses for other Gorilla Glue products. We found that painting Gorilla Super Glue on soft plastic parts would make them ridged without becoming brittle. The original Gorilla Glue could bond the wooden motor mount to the plastic body of the plane without the use of screws or any other kind of fastener.
We had several flight structural failures before trying Gorilla Glue. They all ended the same way.
The powerful engine that was required for these high speeds literally pulled this airplane apart in mid air. We were able to solve this problem and more, thanks to Gorilla Glue, it’s wonderful properties and it's incredible strength.
Many tries, and a lot of Gorilla Glue later, we’ve culminated with the SF8. It’s fast, it’s strong and it’s a blast to fly. We refined this scratch built plane for over a years time. We would like to thank Gorilla Glue for its contribution to this beautiful, fast and strong airplane.
Gorilla Tape launch water rockets to break World Record!
Remember this story about using Gorilla Tape to launch water rockets for the world record? Well, read on...
We got the official World Record! We set the world record for launching the most water rockets simultaneously. Thanks to Gorilla Tape, we were able to make some of the most difficult connections. And we did it, with 213 of them.
The entire project was a great success, the amount of press was enormous, and we have been seen by over 1.2 million people on national television!
Gorilla Tape was used to connect water rockets to their launch pads. These water rockets are usually made from plastic soft drink bottles, and are used to teach the principles of aeronautics as well as to entertain! The event took place in The Hague, The Netherlands.
We are looking forward to working with your products in future projects (which includes a HUMAN launch and the world’s largest water rocket)! And thanks again, Gorilla Tape, for helping making this possible!

Gorilla Makes it to the Top of Mount Kilimanjaro!!
The Gorilla has climbed to extraordinary heights! It's not everyday that you are able to see the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, but leave it to Gorilla Glue to make it there. The Gorilla reached the summit and was used to work on patches! These pictures are taken from various vantage points from the climb (the High Millenium camp at 12,400 feet, the Lava Tower camp at 14,700 feet, and the summit at 16,000 feet.) Thanks! - Kapanya
Gorilla Saves a Tree
Approximately 2 years ago, my Bradford Pear tree (40 feet tall, 12 years old) had the tree trunk split down the middle about 3 feet or so. I decided to fill the split with your liquid Gorilla Glue. Today, the tree is healthy, and the split is okay! I shaved off the excess glue and painted it brown to match the bark. I really feel Gorilla Glue saved my tree! It is now about 50-60 feet high and in full bloom! Thanks!
Gorilla Tapes Tops it Off!
Gorilla Tape has replaced my sunroof! I went and got Gorilla Tape and made two layers - one on the top and one on the inside to cover the sticky side. I then added three strips on the top for extra hold. The tape saved me from having to buy a new sunroof! It has been through a tough test, between this winter and all the rain. It doesn't leak and it hasn't even peeled off. I LOVE GORILLA TAPE!
Tough as Texas
I was making a concrete table top with the state of Texas inlay. I was using the Gorilla Glue to hold the river rocks in place while I poured the concrete into the form. After the concrete had cured, I was removing the form piece by piece. When it came time to flip the concrete over to remove the bottom board, it would not come off. I tilted the form onto its side so the weight (400 lbs) would free it from its bond. Not happening. Then, I used a dolly to get between the form and the slab to pry it up. I might add that I used just a drop on each rock to keep them in place! After seeing this with my own eyes, I am definitely a firm believer in the strength of Gorilla Glue.
Gorilla Goes Fishing
I wanted to say that Gorilla Glue saved me a bunch of money and time. I'm not sure how it happened, but I was on vacation and the transducer for my graph on the back of my boat broke off. There wasn't a shop that had a replacement transducer, and buying a new graph wasn't in my budget. Musky fishing without a graph is impossible.
I took off the transducer and it broke at a section that was less than half an inch. I applied some Gorilla Glue, let it set for a couple hours, and the darn thing held for the entire week! The transducer was in the water for the whole vacation. My boat goes about 35mph, so the water pressure was applying directly to the the transducer. I am absolutely amazed that it held. Gorilla Glue never disappoints! Musky fishing without a graph would have been next to impossible, not to mention dangerous driving on that lake. Excellent product!
Old Awning? No Problem.
A group of us went to Old Forge, NY, to spend the weekend in this quaint old town and also visit the water park there. Around 6 PM on Friday evening, it started to rain - slow at first, but soon it was a steady downpour. My awning is about 12 or 15 years old and has many small holes in it. Consequently, we all got quite wet under it. The next day, my buddy came on our site to show me the radar on his phone - heavy rain was headed our way again! I decided to try and do something with our awning to keep us drier than the night before.
I had purchased a roll of Gorilla Tape from the Hardware Store that afternoon to keep in my camper. My nephew and I began to tape up the holes in my 19’ awning using the roll I had plus half a roll my brother in-law had in his camper. We finished just as it started to sprinkle, and within 20 minutes it started to pour. It lasted into the early morning. We stayed up and played cards until 11 pm and never once had a drop of rain come through the awning. The tape is one great product!
