The makers of Gorilla Glue have come out with a clear tape that stands up to tough repairs.
Gorilla Clear Repair can be used to fix most surfaces, such as cracked smart phone screens, broken headlights and torn tents. It’s weatherproof, water-resistant and easy to tear, and it sticks to smooth, rough or uneven surfaces.
The tape’s adhesive isn’t Gorilla Glue, but rather a polyurethane adhesive formulated for use on tape. It creates a permanent bond over time and can be difficult to remove, so it’s not the right choice for a stopgap fix.
Gorilla Clear Repair comes in a 27-foot roll and has a suggested retail price of $6.99. It’s widely available at retailers including hardware and auto parts stores, home improvement centers and mass merchandisers.
