What is the most interesting way you used duct tape to repair something?
Or just any interesting way you have used duct tape or seen it used?
I used duct tape to fix my peppered turkey and swiss sandwich once.
I used it to fix the warped edges of a plastic component. Part of a spinning plastic rotor. Similar to the ones you see in fish tanks. This one, was for drawing liquid from a tray into a tube. Known generally as the glass engraving kit. Anyways, I put the piece back into place into the motorized unit. And it worked.
It's use continued for more then five months.
A friend of the family, made boots out of cardboard with duct tape. To fasten to the feet of an Alf doll. I thought that was kinda neat when I was a kid.
Frankly, I think everyone should have duct tape. You never know when you'll need it.
I used duct tape as a wallet for close to 8 months, I think that was the most unique way. Other uses were just to fix my brother's side view mirror when it got knocked off we just taped it to his car.
I did once see a website with a list of 100 or so uses for duct tape that was pretty interesting.
