What all things has anyone used duct tape for?
Aside from many fixes I used it once to make a wallet.

I regularly use it to safely tape plug wires to jacks for an appliance to work.

I also have a taped vaccum cleaner. XD

I have duct taped several things in my car, including leather seats and as a temporary fix for a loose speaker cover. I have taped rattling parts under the hood as well, as a long term fix that WORKED! I think of my '80s Volvo as MacGyver's Jeep but with a lot more luxury and most of the utility. I'm not sure I would dismember my car quite as easily for casual MacGyverisms! blink.gif jeep.gif

Duct tape makes a great temporary tool and '3rd hand' for holding things while you switch tools or SAK blades! sak.gif

We had an assignment in an art class one time where we had to make something out of duct tape. I made a pair of sandles, and they turned out pretty nice, too. I've also used it to fix a pair of earbuds, and it works great to keep blisters from forming on your feet when you're hiking.

Yeah!! That in fact does work!
And for some reason it looks more hygienic than band aids...

I've used it to tape my bumper to my old car. Works brilliantly!

Mac used duct tape to make repairs on Nikki's fancy shoes that were falling apart when they were hiking up the mountain in GX-1.

I was watching COPS tonight and there was an ingenius use for duct tape. Some guy called the police regarding an alligator in his yard. Animal control showed up and subdued the gator and wrapped his snout with duct tape to keep it's jaws shut. biggrin.gif

Well, since hubby's truck is well past it's prime and has a rusting out fender, he covered the sharp edges with duct tape so it would pass inspection. laugh.gif

It also holds up nicely in repairing the little loop on your car remote (where your keyring goes) when it breaks. wink.gif

It's also all that's keeping my ancient Bible from falling apart. In fact my friends call it the MacGyver Bible. laugh.gif

Duct tape works as a wart remover huh.gif ....cover the wart with tape and remove the tape in a week. Wart should come off with the tape. My small town family doctor's office recommends this for people who don't want to pay to freeze the warts off.

I've also used duct tape to hold a side mirror on my car when it came off on a road trip. It held up for over 1000 miles before I needed to replace/repair the mirror.

Great stuff duct.gif

To tape packages (!!!), ready to send in mail, especially outside Norway.
I get panic if something's gonna happen to it...because I often send chocolate to my American sweetie...(not that chocolate is such a big waste, but I once ordered chocolate from America and the whole package was smashed...!)

I love ductape, I just feel sorry for those who's gonna open it to get the content biggrin.gif!

Also to tape my lamp to the wall, I COULD use screws, but I move it around so much, that taping it to the wall gives the same angle.

NOTE: My cousin did actually use a VERY strong ductape, over his lips, resulted bloody lips and fleshy print on the tape.....

I've used it to repair the fender on my car, and as a brace for everything from knees to ankles to wrists.
I've also used it to tape the soles back onto a pair of work boots. I was down in Tennessee on a week-long mission trip (the Appalacia Service Project, or ASP. Church groups work to repair homes in the Appalacia region - West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee) and the sole of my group leader's boot fell off an hour into the first day. I had a roll of duct tape in my toolbox, so we taped her boot back together. The next day, same drill with the other boot, but hey held together until we got home.

Dragslo, if your cousin ever wants to try it again -- use alcohol as a solvent for the adhesive.

I used it to cover up the bottom part of my seat on my Jeep Wrangler. The seats are grey so you really don't even notice it is there...lol.

LOL! Good one, Azalea!

My best use of duct tape was when I took the side mirror off my car when backing out of the garage. idiot.png I taped it up, and it held (for a few months, as I recall!) until I had the money to get it fixed properly.

Good idea with the car mirror fix!! It proves that duct tape is good for EVERYTHING! Do not worry about your garage accident, once I made a dent in my car because I decided to attack the lightning post when I was backing laugh.gif
