What is it? a flexible silicone wrap

What does it claim? to create an air and water tight seal in seconds

Who tested it? Virginia Beach resident Basilio Cachaper

What Are The Instructions? First thing you need to do is to thoroughly clean the area that you are going to wrap and wash your hands. Then cut the Mighty Fixit tape to the length needed.

Peel a small section of the protective film back to start the application. Next, stretch Mighty fixit and wrap it around the area and overlap it at least one time. Then continue to stretch and wrap, removing the protective film as you wrap.

Release the stretch and cut off the excess tape. It's important to note that the more you stretch the stronger and faster the Mighty Fixit grips.

The tape will start to bond almost immediately. It is completely fused in 24 hours at room temperature.

To remove your Mighty Fixit repair, gently cut the length of the bond with a blade leaving on sticky residue.

Something else to keep in mind is that for leaks, you need to make sure you make multiple layer wraps around the area and keep stretching it to 100% at all times.

Mighty Fixit should only be used as a temporary fix for in-house or high water pressure repairs. It should also NEVER be used on gas lines.

Did it work? Cachaper wrapped his garden hose twice to make sure the Mighty Fixit was tight enough to cover the leak.

Unfortunately, while the water wasn't shooting out anymore, it was now coming out the ends where the Mighty Fixit stopped. He followed the instructions perfectly and thought for sure it would work. While he was disappointed with the results, he was optimistic that Mighty Fixit could work on other things and he plans to purchase it.

Cost/Availability? You can purchase a set of three rolls of tape, 30 feet total, of Mighty Fixit for $9.99 at Target.
