    For Christmas someone gave me this as seen on TV glue.

    We cleaned the fridge yesterday and one of the plastic frames that holds the glass shelf was broken. I messed around with super glue and a hair dryer for half an hour and remembered I had this UV curing glue thing. It worked in 5 seconds and was really a strong repair. I was impressed.

    I somehow managed to acquire a pack of that stuff too, I've had mixed results using it in different things.

    I watched some on line tests people did and it seems like it works amazing or not at all. The stuff I was gluing was kind of clear and the light could get thru it. Kind of like the stuff my dentist uses.

    I’ll try it till it is used up and decide if I want to spend 10 bucks on it again.

    I've repaired a computer paper tray that no other glue would work on, old plastic glasses, coffee cup handle, and it worked perfect for me, no mess and held in seconds.
    Just do not let it freeze.
    I left one in my truck and when used it would not work on anything I tried.
