The Giz Wiz ... Shake, Rattle and Hold

Episode 1786 (2:20:20)


This week's gadget is Quake Hold! Museum Putty. It secures antiques, collectibles, figurines, and more from falling and breaking. It can be used on most surfaces, including ceramics, porcelains, and laminates, as well as on walls to help stabilize pictures. It comes ready to use in a two-and-a-half-ounce flat sleeve, just pull off what you need. Roll the putty into small balls (about the size of a pea), or strips, and apply to the base of an item. Press down lightly and twist into position. It sets within 30-minutes and comes off cleanly with no mess. To remove, simply lift and twist from the bottom of the object. One packet will secure up to forty items of average size. 

The company says it can hold up to 40 pounds depending on many factors, so be sure to read the full instructions. And of course, there is no warranty that an object will remain adhered to a surface. Caution is required, etc. It is also very low priced, about $4. Also from one of the reviews I read, it seems this product is sold under several different names, but I bought the Quake Hold! brand.
