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.

this might work as well
<p>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...</p>
<p>Great idea! TYSM for sharing!</p>
<p>Nice one :) </p>
<p>Thumbs UP man. You are completely amazing!!!</p>
<p>Thank You!</p>
<p>Creative. :D</p>
why didn't I think of that<br>cause it's so simple and<br>easy, I think it will surely <br>shake the future
<p>Very clever!</p>
<p> Without a doubt, the most ingenious, and at the same time simple, hack I've seen!</p>
<p>Thank You!</p>
<p>Repaired my car remote with this and was amazed to see the results. Thanks.</p>
<p>Good to know. Cheers!</p>
<p>The best step in this instructable is that you DON'T need a glue gun...! Brilliant </p><p>Simplicity deserves rewards... </p>
<p>That is nothing short of GENIUS!!!</p>
<p>This would be an incredible addition to a survival kit and it wouldn't take up any more space than a normal box of matches. Now your matches will do twice as much! Excellent work! This is the type of thinking that drives instructables.</p>
<p>This is really fantastic. Provides heat and serves as the applicator at the same time. Really nice.</p>
<p>Thank You!</p>
<p>good for na emergency</p>
<p>Simple and genius!.</p>
<p>Thank You!</p>
<p>What a great idea!</p>

I made this and it works well!!! Used a glue gun instead of candle to apply glue to matchsticks which made it even easier ;)
<p>Nice!</p><p>Yes, I guess it is easier to apply it with a glue gun.</p><p>Cheers</p>
