Hot Glue for Toe Guard Application
« on: December 13, 2016, 02:32:15 AM »

I've searched previous topics on the forum looking for this, but couldn't find it mentioned... (probably means it isn't a good idea lol)

Anyone tried using a hot glue gun to put on toe guards?

I've never used a hot glue gun for anything before, but the wife bought one for Christmas arts and crafts with our daughter.
Had the idea when i saw it.

Hot glue ive found just solidifies and has no gluing properies when cold, that might just be the glue i was using though... Cant see it being a good idea as it doesnt really spread very easily and cools quickly.. Can you not convince her that shoegoo is better for arts and crafts?

Agreed, a glue gun onto a smooth surface doesn't have much adhesion once it's cooled and dried. Worth ago but I don't think it will stay on very long if at all.

I suggest hanging new bats as art one day...
Talk about going down like a lead balloon!

I think that suggestion would get a similar response!
