Duct tape can be used for so many types of projects that we've really lost count. It's an essential tool, and in honor of the sticky stuff that holds it all together we've teamed up with Scotch® Tough Duct Tape to bring you the Duct Tape Tough Contest!

To enter the contest, just make a new Instructable that involves duct tape in some way. It can be a minor fix or part of an epic build, that's up to you. Make something awesome and win a Flip Video Ultra HD camcorder or a Leatherman!

Since there are many different uses for duct tape we'll be awarding prizes in a few different categories: Most Practical, Nifty Trick and Most Creative.

So get going, and make something awesome with duct tape. We can't wait to see what it is!

Multiple entries are accepted. Entrants can only win one prize. International entries are accepted.

The Duct Tape Tough Contest is closed.
