The gtech battery powered for sweeper is a neat little device, keeping flies and carpets clean. However, the little edge cleaning brush snapped off one members', so Sugru to the rescue.

This repair is the kind of thing Sugru excels at. Regular glue would be useless, & hot glue wouldn't stick. Epoxy would be rock hard, so you couldn't get the retaining lug through the hole once set, & doing it 'wet' would likely ruin it as it would glue the rotating part to the fixed part of the cleaner. Plus you'd have to fully strip the sweeper to get access to the blind side of the hole.

Sugru sets more like a silicone rubber, so has the essential 'give' that makes this repair almost trivial!

Step 1: Find the Brush

This little square is where the brush should be. Have a look in the sweeper bin!

Now grab your sugru!

Ours was provided free by Sugru, who sent us about ten free packs to see what we could come up with. You can get a selection pack from B&Q though.
<p>Great sugru fix for your sweeper. Sugru really is great stuff. Thanks!</p>
