The essential silicone protect and repair tape. Repair tape, another innovation from Gardner Bender, can save the day during emergency repairs. Easier than heat-shrink, cleaner than plumbers' putty and more flexible than a vice grip, repair tape is a household necessity. Add it to the tool box, the workshop shelf and the "junk-drawer" for emergency repairs and maintenance projects. Stretch, wrap and protect or repair everything from leaky hoses, pipe insulation, electrical connections, tool handles, air ducts and cord/rope ends.
