Cons: This is a single use product. You can use the contents of the package, a roll of tape and protective gloves, once, to fix one thing. (Maybe two, see below)
What you do is put on the protective gloves, open the airtight pack containing the tape, hold the roll of tape under water for 10 (ish) seconds, and wrap it around what you want to fix. In the nature of Gorilla Glue (and similar behaving compounds), the water activates the adhesive which begins to set almost immediately.
You can't really use part of the tape and save the rest for later because moisture in the air is enough to get the adhesive started and it will set before very long. About the best you can do is have two things that need to be taped, where neither needs a lot of tape, sitting side by side. Tape one item, cut the tape (that will be a messy proposition because you'll get adhesive on whatever you're using to cut the tape), and then tape the other item.
It clearly shows that (sort of) in a few pictures on the side of the package. There are also demonstration videos on how to use this stuff that show its single use nature on the manufacturer site, fiberfix dot com.
However, Fiberfix would be better served and certainly serve their customers better by more clearly pointing out this characteristic of their otherwise excellent product.
Please feel free to let Amazon and me know whether this was helpful to you or not, since it helps me improve my reviews.
Con: YOU HAVE TO USE THE ENTIRE ROLL. No where on the packaging does it state this. Could be a flaw since it's a new product or purposely avoided so you buy it anyway. If they stated "one time use only" I'm sure it'll deter consumers.
I'd buy it again but ONLY if I knew I was going to use the entire roll.
Because of the tight and awkward placement of the wiper controls between the steering wheel and the dashboard, I figured I'd have a lot of trouble applying the wrap without causing a mess. I'll admit that I was VERY apprehensive about the "one-shot" nature of this product. If I messed up the wrapping process in any way, it'd be a big sticky disaster. I also taped newspaper around all nearby surfaces to minimize getting any sticky epoxy on anything. Between that and the black gloves provided in the box, it looked like I had prepped the car for surgery!
I ended up needing the extra hands of my son to hold the 2 pieces of the stalk together while I dunked the tape into a cut-off milk container (filled with water) to activate the adhesive. Moment of truth. Fortunately, once I got the wrapping started, I was able to tug and stretch the fiber tape around all the various curves of the wiper stalk. "Hey, this is actually working," I thought! About halfway through the roll, I could start to feel the tape start to harden up, so I picked up the pace. Surprised that I'd used up the entire roll on this one repair, I did a final molding and squeezing of the wrapped stalk to make sure everything was solid and in place.Read more ›
The product did not work as advertised for repairing leaking pipe.
My only complaint is that it is good only for one use. I put the remaining unused product in a sealed plastic bag to use at a future date but when I attempted to use it again, it was hard and useless.
Aside for the limitation of only a single use, it is a great product.

I absolutely love this product. I had some wireless TurtleBeach headphones that broke just above the ear pad and the FiberFix tape repaired it to better than new. Read morePublished 2 months ago by C. A. Strong
