  • It shrinks when it gets hot

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Works fine - the tube shrinks up perfectly well in an electric heat gun, a butane hot air torch, a hair dryer, and a lighter.

    Cons:

    Don't use a lighter for this if you can avoid it.

    There is no adhesive or sealant inside, so if you heatshrink two or more wires together there will be an air gap, which is a perfect size for whicking moisture or oils up the joint.

    OtherThoughts:

    I've used these for all sorts of misc repairs.  They come bundled up so there are fold marks, but that doesn't cause an issue in use.

    Would be nice if it was available in red too.

    I repaired a set of eye glasses with this heatshrink, still OK.

    Bottomline:

    Convenient pack of useful sizes.
