It has been one of those weeks where it feels that my entire day is made up of repairing/cleaning/fixing all the things that my children have broken and destroyed.

Obviously, that is not completely true – part of my day is making meals and then cleaning up after the meals.  🙂

Well, one of the things that I fixed this week was a crossbow one of  my boys got as a Christmas gift.   My husband accidentally broke it by stepping on it.

(Of course, he wouldn’t have done that if the kids had not left it laying on the ground under a blanket…)

Most of the time, if the kids break one of their toys, tough luck for them.  But in this case, the crossbow broke on the day after Christmas, so I decided I would try to repair it.

My dad just recently made a repair to a broken bike handle using this stuff, and I was so impressed with how tough it was!  I had never heard of it before, but when it came time to repair the crossbow, I knew it would be just the stuff.

Of course, you need to weigh the cost of the item you want to repair with the cost of the FiberFix.  Depending on the width you want (they sell it in 1″, 2″ and 4″ widths), it costs between $5-$10 a roll.

For this repair, I used one roll of the 1″ wide wrap.

The box comes with everything you need to make the repair – including disposable gloves to wear.

It couldn’t be easier to use.  You simple dip the roll in water and then wrap it tightly around your repair.

It cures in about 15 minutes and then is ready to go!

It works so well that I am definitely keeping this stuff on hand for future repairs!

Happy Friday!
