What you can do is use it to wrap something and create a surprisingly strong, leak-proof cover. To make it work as advertized you need to wrap the... (ok) tape around what you are trying to cover making sure each time around you are overlapping the previous and that you are stretching it to at least twice it's length. The overlapping is to get a complete cover and the stretching is what makes layers stick together.
Do those two things and you will be amazed at how well this... strip of self-adhesive silicon material does at sealing leaks. This will probably be enough for any quick repair. However, if you want something that is even more durable (and more expensive) take a look at 3M (03625) 1" x 6' Wrap and Repair Silicone Tape.
I also find it handy to use as cable wraps. A 1/4" wide strip does a great job of keeping wire bundles up to 3/4" thick neat and tidy. And it looks a lot better than Velcro Reusable Self-Gripping Cable Ties, 0.5 Inches x 8 Inches Long, Black, 100 Ties per Pack (91140) or Cables to Go 43036 Cable Ties 4-inch - 100 Pack (Black) on small bundles of wire. BTW, if you use this stuff just for that there's enough to wrap over 500 cable bundles. (576 if you do the arithmetic.)
Please feel free to let Amazon and me know whether this was helpful to you or not, since it helps me improve my reviews.
But when I first found a use for it, I became a believer. This stuff is great to have around.
I have a leaky irrigation hose. I could either make a project of digging it up and replacing it, or I could patch it if I could find a patch method that would work easily. A short length of this tape, stretched and wrapped around the hose while it was spraying water, fixed the problem in a couple of minutes instead of a couple of hours. The patch has held up through several days worth of two hours' irrigation daily, and it's looking solid. I'm glad to to have the rest of the roll on hand for the future.
This tape is not a film with separate adhesive; it seems to be a homogeneous stretchy substance that melds to itself. So when you stretch it thin and wrap it around something, the layers fuse together and it becomes like a band around the thing you've wrapped. For shipping and storage, the tape is separated by layers of an ordinary plastic film; that's why the roll you see photographed looks like it has wrinkled edges. The separating film is much wider than the actual rescue tape itself, presumably to keep the rescue tape effectively separated from the next layer of it.
I originally purchased this to fix a leaking toilet. Worked wonders. I then went on to bigger things, like leaking kitchen sink drains (it was the leak that was bigger, not the toilet). But with the caveat that whatever you want to tape must let the rescue tape stick to itself, it is not adhesive like typical tape, it works as claimed.
I'm now on a mission to find new and exciting uses for the tape. So far:
If you tape the center pole of a typical office chair, your uncooperative coworkers can no longer raise or lower it from where you want it to stay. (Presumably this might fail if your coworkers weigh over 950 pounds, the limit of the tape's tensile strength).
Not really a high pressure application, but I noticed my AC drain was clogged. Normally, I use a garden hose and get wet during the flushing. Not anymore. I wrapped the end of the hose (not tightly like for pressure, but loosely to allow the tape to maintain full thickness) until it just about fit completely into the AC drain access, and then, using some stretching and pressure, I finished it off by tapering the edge to give a smoother, and wedge shaped profile. No more water on me, and AC drain is clog free.
Finally, my Dog's bowls are stainless steel with a rubber bumper bottom. Over the years, the rubber has stretched, although the steel is, well steel and stainless. I have laminate floors, so I did not want scratching, so... Out comes the rescue tape! I admit this one is a challenge, as you have to stretch out about 4' of tape to get all the way around the bottom of the bowl to self-seal. In a patriotic motif, I did one bowl in blue and another in red. I don't know if Sirius likes the colors, but I think he is probably color blind.
Having rededicated my life to finding unique uses for rescue tape, I'll update the review when I've gotten a few more.
