The Handyman’s Guide to Using Flex Tape

It’s no surprise: Flex Sealers are a grab-the-bull-by-the-horns type of people. If it can be done, they’re up for the challenge. Here at Flex Seal Headquarters, it’s our duty to show you how to get the results you want with our products. 

Flex Tape – our newest tool – is no exception. It’s a handyman’s dream come true. Not only does it create an airtight, waterproof barrier for any DIY projects around the house, it also works wonders for any handyman’s gear.

Supply List:

● Flex Tape
● Razor Blade/Sharp, High-Quality, Scissors

*Flex Tip: Make sure your surface is clean of oil, grease, and dirt before applying Flex Tape.

Handyman Flex Tip #1: Hardware Hats.

If you’re a handyman for a profession (or even just around the house), Flex Tape can take care of any cracks in your hardware hats.

With a pair of sharp, high-quality scissors, just cut the tape at your desired size.

Be sure that the tape’s coverage is slightly larger than the problem area. Next, remove the backing from the tape. Then (with force), apply the tape to the cracked area on your hat. Continue to press down firmly to remove any air pockets or bubbles for smooth coverage.

You can either fix the crack in your hat from the inside of the hat, or the outside or both (for double duty). Just give the tape 24 hours to reach its maximum hold strength. Another great thing about Flex Tape our fans have successfully tried is spraying Flex Seal over Flex Tape for colorful transformation.

*Flex Tip: To get rid of air pockets and bubbles, use your fingers, a rubber roller, or a plastic squeegee.

Handyman Flex Tip #2: Work Boots.
On the job, work boots are just as important as hardware hats. After working long days, it’s likely that your boots will get worn down with scrapes and tears or one may even use them until there are full-blown holes. That’s no problem Flex Tape can’t fix. Just cut a piece long enough to cover the problem area, remove the backing, and apply it with pressure to the needed area. Again, feel free to “double up” on Flex Tape if you’d like (taping the inside and outside of the tear or hole).

Flex Tape will keep your feet both warm during the cold seasons and dry during the wet seasons. And if your boots still look rundown, give them a newer look by spraying them with Flex Seal; it comes in 12 different vibrant colors.

*Flex Tip: Flex Tape is not meant to be a permanent fix. It’s a temporary, emergency repair.

Handyman Flex Tip #3: Work Gloves.
Aside from keeping your hands warm, work gloves also keep you from getting cuts, scrapes, and splinters. But, old and raggedy work gloves just might not do the job anymore.

When you Flex Tape your work gloves, they’ll be almost as good as new. With Flex Tape’s maximum flexibility, you can completely wrap the fingers and the rest of the glove for complete protection. Think of Flex Tape as not only a sealant but an insulator. And even more, a safety precaution.

*Flex Tip: Flex Tape works on both dry and most wet surfaces, even underwater.
