Step 6: so there it is! all fixed!

 I have used the sandal for at least a day after I fixed it and is doing well. I really don't know if it will last a long time, but if it doesn't I might consider adding a drop of epoxy to the tab to fix it to the sole. Hope someone can use this instructable. Pretty simple and easy, but sometimes those are the little things that actually will make one's day. Cheers!
Thank you! I read your instructable last week and my flip flop broke today. I went into the freezer and took the tab off the loaf of bread. I put it on the flip flop and it works perfectly with no problems. Thanks again. PT
This has happened to anyone who wears flip-flops at least once, and we throw out those little bread ties all the time. This one's so simple, it's genius. Thanks for posting.
this is cool, i will definitely be searching the house for two of these!

&nbsp;i just wanted to update a bit. I finally had to replace the plastic tab. So all in all, I am pretty satisfied with how long this fix lasted.
&nbsp;ooo man I wish I had read this before I backpacked in the almalfi coast last week and broke my only pair of sandals I fixed them with medical tape it only worked for a few hrs. ):
&nbsp;that's ingenious! why hadn't i thought of that?
