Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival
Meet us at The Diner. We’ve had some great stories over the counter at the Duct Tape Diner recently. If you haven’t yet read the Diner contributions, stop by! This is where we invite our visitors to share their own duct tape stories.
Just like these people did:
Beer Carrier on a Roll I had a 24-pack of Bud that I drank a few out of. Now I had 20 cans in a case that was open at 1 end and needed an easy way to carry it over to my buddy's place. So, I pulled out my duct tape and made myself a convienient handle. I'm sure it's not the funniest use you guys have been emailed, but who can't relate to this?! - Jarod
Change Collector I have a small double-decker washer/dryer unit. The wash basket is narrow and frequently, loose change ends up in the bottom, just barely visable... poking out from under the agitator skirt. I can not get my fingers under there to retrieve the change...and only succeed at pushing the coins back and forth. I thought to get a piece of duct tape and slide the end of it under the agitator...and I am then able to pick up the coins. - Torre
Silly Putty and Duct Tape Cool the Feet Where I work is 16 air conditioners on the black tar roof. The roof surface can be 130° F and gets very uncomfortable for the feets. I made the silly putty molded to my shoes then froze it. when I go to the roof I duct tape the frozen molds to the top of my shoes. Feets Coolers! They last only 30 minutes in that heat, but that's 30 miinutes before my shoes are filled and sweat and my feets get soft boiled. - Larry A.
