"A group of us went to Old Forge, NY, to spend the weekend in this quaint old town and also visit the water park there. Around 6 PM on Friday evening, it started to rain - slow at first, but soon it was a steady downpour. My awning is about 12 or 15 years old and has many small holes in it. Consequently, we all got quite wet under it.Read More
"I wanted to say that Gorilla Glue saved me a bunch of money and time. I'm not sure how it happened, but I was on vacation and the transducer for my graph on the back of my boat broke off. There wasn't a shop that had a replacement transducer, and buying a new graph wasn't in my budget. Musky fishing without a graph is impossible.Read More
I was making a concrete table top with the state of Texas inlay. I was using the Gorilla Glue to hold the river rocks in place while I poured the concrete into the form. After the concrete had cured, I was removing the form piece by piece. When it came time to flip the concrete over to remove the bottom board, it would not come off.Read More
Gorilla Tape has replaced my sunroof! I went and got Gorilla Tape and made two layers - one on the top and one on the inside to cover the sticky side. I then added three strips on the top for extra hold. The tape saved me from having to buy a new sunroof! It has been through a tough test, between this winter and all the rain. It doesn't leak and it hasn't even peeled off.Read More
Approximately 2 years ago, my Bradford Pear tree (40 feet tall, 12 years old) had the tree trunk split down the middle about 3 feet or so. I decided to fill the split with your liquid Gorilla Glue. Today, the tree is healthy, and the split is okay! I shaved off the excess glue and painted it brown to match the bark. I really feel Gorilla Glue saved my tree!Read More
The Gorilla has climbed to extraordinary heights! It's not everyday that you are able to see the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, but leave it to Gorilla Glue to make it there. The Gorilla reached the summit and was used to work on patches!Read More
"Remember this story about using Gorilla Tape to launch water rockets for the world record? Well, read on...
We got the official World Record! We set the world record for launching the most water rockets simultaneously. Thanks to Gorilla Tape, we were able to make some of the most difficult connections. And we did it, with 213 of them.Read More
"My dad and I set out to break the world speed record for an Electric Styrofoam Radio Controlled Airplane. Once we passed the 100 mph mark, strength became a major issue. The glues available at the hobby store were not up to the task.Read More
"Two years ago I finished building a 1924 Ford Model T with a Depot Hack body (i.e. a station wagon). It took two and a half years to complete the project.Read More
"I’m an architect in Las Vegas, Nevada and with the current state of the economy have a little extra time on my hands.
During a site visit for a construction I noticed a pile of scrap 1-1/8” tongue and grove plywood that was on its way to the dump. I enjoy finding ways to recycle materials and couldn’t let the plywood just get thrown away.Read More
