GS Hypo Cement
We absolutely swear by this glue for securing thread and, oddly enough, gluing metal pieces together where there isn’t huge weight involved. For anyone knotting or stringing on thread, this glue is a must-have. The fine-tip applicator, about the diameter of a fine needle, is wonderful for getting glue right into the end-tip. We recommend storing it in a cool place standing upright.
Sold per 1/3-ounce tube.
Here are some tips about how to use it best:
1. When you are done using it, add a small bit of Vaseline around the tip. This helps keep the glue from adhering to the cap. You can also use a cosmetic sponge instead of the cap.
2. Stand the tube up in the box and leave it in a cool place until the next time you need it. By standing it up, the chance of glue drying around the needle tip and the cap are less.
3. In the event the needle does come off, you are still able to use the glue. Squeeze a small bit out onto a plastic bag and apply with a tooth pick.
Zap Glue isn't a replacement for GS Hypo Tube. Zap is meant for heavy-duty jobs like fixing leather into a clasp end. If you’ve tried these tips and you have additional questions about glue, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Always work in a well-ventilated room. Birds are also very sensitive to fumes from glue. Please do NOT use glue in the same room where birds are present. Keep away from small children and pets.
