Hot Glue Matches





Introduction: Hot Glue Matches

In the Instructable Pocket-Size Portable Hot Glue, I demonstrated a way to make hot glue portable.

I have used that portable glue a few times now and I find it very handy.

Just the other day I visited my girlfriends parents and was asked to glue a painting that had fallen out of the frame.

I had a glue stick attached to the keys, so it only took me a few seconds to do the job.

In this Instructable we look at another way to make a portable hot glue.

If you are Interested in a video version of this Instructable and the embedded video does not appear on your mobile device, here is an alternative link

Step 1:

Heat up the glue stick and apply some glue on the matches.

I used a piece of foam to hold the matches while the glue cooled down.

Step 2:

I added a label to the matchbox to know what's inside

If I'm ever on the road and I need to glue something fast, all I need to do is strike a match.

very clever idea....additionally they could be carried in a survival kit and double as fire starters...wind resistant matches...especially if you embedded additional sulphur heads into the hot glue...

Great idea! TYSM for sharing!

Thumbs UP man. You are completely amazing!!!

cause it's so simple and
easy, I think it will surely
shake the future

Very clever!

Without a doubt, the most ingenious, and at the same time simple, hack I've seen!
