We all know the problem: you are glueing something, and the moment you don't use your hot glue gun, glue leaks out of the nozzle. That's a waste off glue that you can't use anymore.

The reason for this leaking problem is: grafity. The solution: point the nozzle upwards!
Then I invented this simple, cheap and money-saving stand.

Step 1: Get the materials

For this project you will need:
- a small bottle
- sand
- the hot glue gun
- a funnel
- a small pipe
- a thick and a thin rubber band
- a biro

You have all this materials at home, so it won't cost you anything!
<p>Nice 'ible! I found this while searching to find out why the hot glue guns leak. I was told that older hot glue guns don't have this problem. </p>
of course it is an unreasonable solution,melt glue will tend to flow backward, and eventually clog the entire device, as it getting cold.!!!!
dont you think the rubber bands will leak out?
do you mean if the rubber bands will melt?
yes im sorry if i think about stuff i tend to type it if im typing thanks for the correction also check out my instructable coming soon called magnetizer jar
I know that problem haha. But no, the rubber bands don't melt when you use the gluegun.
