I recently mended the vacuum cleaner – where the hose connects into the body, the plastic collar had broken – and the charging cable for the iPad – which was showing signs of cracking – using Sugru. This malleable silicone substance can be moulded to the required shape or location and then left to harden binding to the substrate. So far it seems to have been effective! I have previously used it to mend the clay birdbath which had cracked in half.
Repairing anything that can be repaired is always a good option as it prolongs its useful life.
