This product does not qualify for VAT exemption as is not designed as a disability-specific product. VAT will be added at the checkout. Therefore, the total cost of this item for customers within the UK is £9.99. Customers outside the UK will pay the price shown above.

How Do I Use My FixIts?

  1. Heat It – Put the kettle on! The sticks soften at temperatures above 60°C / 140°F
  2. Dunk It – Expose FixIts to the hot water for approx. 1 minute and see it soften
  3. Remove It – Remove from heat and pinch off what you need.
  4. Mould It – Shape the soft material to mend your item or add extra grip

You can mix different coloured sticks to make a new colour, or to give a marbled look.

The plastic hardens as it cools, if you need to shape it a little more, then you can use a hair dryer to reheat areas. You can roll the plastic, or shape it into a ball or cube or mould it around the object you want to attach it to. The plastic hardens as it cools, if you need to shape it a little more, then you can use a hair dryer to reheat areas. If you want a smoother surface then wet your finger before rubbing the shape. If you want texture then heat with a hairdryer and add texture. 

FixIts are reusable: if you didn’t get it quite right – just remelt the plastic and mould it again.

You just use what you need from the stick so there is no wastage. They don’t have an expiry date, meaning you can store them until you need them.

Fixits are made from a bioplastic that is compliant to European regulation EN14995 for compostability.
