Cycling to the Pub tonight?

I bought a new bicycle recently, with the aim of taking a bit of serious exercise. The bike design is great for the most part, but I noticed that there is not enough room on the handle bars to place the fittings for a front light. Also the seat fitting/position is not suitable for the rear light either, as it interferes with the mudguard fitting. Even the  struts down to the rear wheel are not cylindrical but tapering triangular sections, so they do not work with the rear light fittings.
My plans to cycle with some friends to a pub one evening and come back in the dark are being thwarted!
However, I have used some StormForm (our new product) and a bit of ingenuity, and fixed both front and rear LED lights onto my helmet.

StormForm is polymer which can be melted in hot water and moulded to almost any shape, and it then cools into a hard white plastic. It sticks really well to the plastic on the helmet and and after a few rides shows no sign of coming off.

StormForm is THE MOST USEFUL PRODUCT I have come across for ages!

So I should be visible coming back after dark this week end.  Does anyone want to try it out?

You can get  StormForm in a box of 70g and  250ml and 1 litre  tins  from www.stormsure.com

Triathlon Wetsuit repair

Fix Rips in Triathlon Wetsuits

Fix Rips in Triathlon Wetsuits

Any experienced triathlete will know that depressing feeling when they pull on their wetsuit, and their fingernails pierce the neoprene material. Often it is just a small hole and maybe brushed off as “not a big deal”… until the next time they pull it on and a massive rip appears.

The simple solution is to fix the small hole right away.

It only takes 2 or 3 minutes and can be done anywhere; even on the beach.  You just need a tube of Neoprene Queen Wetsuit Repair Adhesive.

Put a thin layer of the black Neoprene Queen glue on the thin edge of the rip (on both sides that need to be glued together).   Leave it for 2  minutes until the glue is touch dry, and then carefully aligned the split and press the edges together again firmly. That is all there is to it! The repair will be as strong as the original material.

We have 5g tubes of Neoprene Queen available and also larger 30g tubes.

Buy a few of the small ones and keep one in your car, one in your sports bag and another at home. You will always be able to fix that small hole in the neoprene before it gets any larger.

I had to pay a lot of money to fix it!

I never like having to replace  a fairly new item just because I have damaged it.

Last autumn a friend spent £300 on a new pair of really good quality wellington boots, only to snag them on  barbed wire last winter and ripping a hole in the rubber near the side of his foot. He was mortified at the prospect of replacing them when he had only used them for a few weeks.

In reality, we often think we need to replace things rather than repair them. But it is not true.

At Stormsure, we encourage you all to think about making a lasting repair with our products. For a small price you really can save a great deal of money.

Try out our new TUFF Tape and special Repair Kits.

Once you have used it you will never go back to anything else!

Stupid Accident…

Ever reversed your car into a tree and smashed out the back window?  Well I have.

Stupid moments can cost money and time especially when you need to travel.  With no glass in the back of my car and rain imminent I had to think fast.  I needed something that would stick (most importantly) and remain watertight and then I remembered my 10m box of STORMSURE’S TUFF TAPE… (and a see through polythene sheet).

I quickly cleared away as much glass as possible, ensuring that the area I wanted to stick on to was clean and dry.  Starting at the top I secured the polythene in the corners and followed with long stretches of TUFF TAPE till the area was stuck too perfection!

EASY!

National windscreen turned up two hours later ;)…
