Protecting Glass from Accidental Breakage
Ever have one of those days when you get the dropsies, you're a
little more accident prone than usual, or maybe there are
rambunctious children and pets in your home? More often than not,
the results are the same, stuff gets broken.
Things like that precious collection of crystal, your favorite glass
figurine, or your most treasured collectibles get bumped and
Wouldn't it be great if there was a way of protecting those things
against accidental breakage? Well, there is, and it's called Clear
Originally developed for museums to keep unsecured valuables in
place and prevent them from falling and breaking, Clear Gel is now
available to everyone.
It's a see-through, no-mess product that goes underneath objects to
keep them in place. Because the gel is virtually invisible,
household items such as vases, jars and other glass items appear to
be resting in place normally, but in reality they're being held fast
so that if knocked, they won't topple over.
Accidents can happen at any time and even a simple chore, such as
dusting, can end in heartache. All it takes is one slip and a
sentimental treasure can be gone forever, but by applying the gel,
you can secure your valued objects and dust around them with no more
worries. It really does give you peace of mind.
Clear Gel is removable and reusable, non-toxic and non-damaging to
furniture, and it's clean and easy to use. Simply roll it into
balls, about the size of a pea, apply them to the base of objects to
be secured, and firmly press the items in place. An invisible bond
is formed in 30-60 minutes.
Removal is just as easy. Gently twist the item in an upward motion,
being sure to handle the object from the base. Once removed, the gel
can be reused over and over again.
This amazing and innovative product is now marketed by Quake Hold, one of
America's proven leaders in home safety and security fasteners.
"Clear Gel is great on any glassware and crystal and is our answer
to the many requests we've had for a clear product," said Dean Reese.
"Its invisibility makes the gel unique, and
its versatility makes it a must for use around the home, or office."
The key is to put just a little bit on the bottom of an object and
within a short period of time it will bond with the surface. The
beauty of the gel is that it's a temporary adhesive, so when you
want to move the item, it comes off with a simple twist.
It's great for use anywhere in the home, and it reduces the worry of having
expensive and even sentimental items accidentally broken.
Mr Reese said a 4oz (100g) jar would safeguard 200-300 small crystal
figurines, 50-100 wineglasses or 10-20 large vases.
The gel's primary application is for glass objects on glass shelves,
although it can be used on most non-porous surfaces. The product has
strong holding power and can secure heavy objects in place.
