Intro: DIY Vacuum Cleaner Belt Using Super Glue

My vacuum cleaner belt snapped in half, and because its an old vacuum I didn't want to spend money or time looking for and buying a new one so i made one with stuff I had on hand

I took the rubber strap off a pair of safety goggles and trimmed it to fit the vacuum cleaner.
 I then super glued the 2 ends together, let it dry and kept on vacuuming. don't be stingy with the super glue, and make sure the glue is dry before putting it back on the vacuum otherwise it'll get stuck to the vacuum, which is no good

this is a cheap, quick and easy way to fix a vacuum using just a rubber strap and super glue!

 I would have just glued the broken belt back together but it was too badly messed up.

    Hi embochner,
    Good idea, just wondering how long this fix will last, as from personal experience, superglue fixes don't like any kind of movement?!
    Would be interested in an update.
    Cheers,
    R

    I'd recommend contact cement -that glue is more flexible than super-glue.
