    It shrinks when it gets hot

    posted by Criggie on 02/25/2014 Certified Owner

    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 w...

    Excellent

    posted by randomxyz on 09/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good selection of sizes. These are really all the sizes you need, from the tiniest wires to high current RC wiring. 3m is also a fairly large amount. If you're only using this for your hobby, these will last for years. The price is also good.
    Cons:
    They just come stuffed in a bag. You need to sort them out and put a rubber band around each bundle.

    Excellent and cheap - must have!

    posted by Inlog on 05/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Excellent and unbelievable cheap! You get 15m for ~4$. Compare - Moscow radio store, 2m only for same 4$ (2 mm diameter). Everybody must have at home being even not professional or radio lover - this is excellent and handy to use isolation material.
    Cons:
    No cons, really decreases diameter more than twice being heated

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a good selection of heat shrink plastic. Very usefull for insulating joins in wire etc. It's better than using electricians insulating tape as it won't unwind in hot weather and makes a better looking job. It's best to shrink it with a heat gun b...

    No brainer multi pack

    posted by ed2096 on 01/31/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Standard shrink tubing, blow dry or heat gun to seal. Quality 3M product, seals nicely, high quality material. Convenient multipack of various sizing, looks better and lasts longer than electrical tape Price makes this a no brainer
    Cons:
    If you're looking for a single size, could be annoying. Otherwise, useful to have various sizes for various projects

    great product!

    posted by houthakker1985 on 01/09/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This is good quality shrink tube and it is dirt cheap. I love it use it all the time for my RC plane, soldering servo leads and arduino leads together, schrink tube it to protect and insulate the joints For most hobby appliances this size pack are most used.
    Cons:
    bit bent/flat corners due to packing but to me thats not a real con, to avoid this they should ship it in 3M enveloppes ;)
