DIY Hack Your Uke

Several different tricks to repair, adjust or adapt your ukulele and accessories with one single product!

Here we have an entire section dedicated to my favourite latest discovery… Sugru. This fantastically versatile product can be used in many different ways to repair or alter your accessories and ukulele to either fix, improve, protect or in some other way enrich your ukulele musical experience.

“Sugru’s patented technology is unique in its combination of hand-formability, self-adhesion and flexibility when cured. It feels like modelling clay, and it’s that easy to use too. Once cured, its durable properties mean it’s comfortable in extreme environments from the dishwasher to the ocean in Antarctica.” – Sugru Website.

Click the images below to see the great ideas people have come up with for using Sugru to repair or improve your ukulele and accessories. For more technical data see the TDS and MSDS or for more fun and interesting ways to use Sugru and of course to purchase it see the website here.
