FixIts are mouldable eco-friendly plastic sticks that can be used to solve a number of challenges around your home, garden, tech, workplace and more - FixIts is the new kitchen drawer essential.
FixIts can be moulded into any which way, shape or form. They are also endlessly reusable - just re-heat and re-mould! First conceived by author and materials designer Chris Lefteri.
How does it work?
FixIts sticks are quick and easy to use. They become soft and flexible when dunked into heated water (we recommend 60 deg. C or 140 F) and can be formed into any shape you may need. FixIts hardens as it cools so there’s no curing time needed.
FixIts are incredibly tough and made to last. Once hardened, they can be drilled into, hammered into, screwed into, sanded down or cut to size.
Made a mistake or changed your mind? Simply re-heat to start again! You can also squish leftover bits together and save them for your next fix, or blend colours to form new hues and patterns.
FixIts are biodegradable in compliance with requirements for EN-14995, so you can dispose of them in an environmentally-friendly manner if you wish.
Not just for DIY pros.
We envision FixIts as the new essential for everyone: with 1000s of possible uses, it’s so handy you’ll want to keep it close by.
Use it to fix your tech - for example your frayed charging cable
Or other little things that bother you - e.g. your wobbly chair
Make something new from something old - e.g. this aeroplane spoon
Create the home and garden of your dreams - e.g. make a comfortable grip
Or make sure you’re prepared for your next adventure!
A quick fix in a stick.
The instructions for how to use FixIts are directly on the sticks, so you'll never be at a loss on how to use them. This makes it incredibly easy to share the fix with your friends and family.

And a taste of some of the development work that went into FixIts: Designed and Manufactured in the UK
We're looking for our early adopters and pioneers here on Kickstarter! We're aiming to get 1000 packs of FixIts out through this campaign, but we don't want it to stop there. We're hoping Kickstarter will help build the community that will allow FixIts to become the household emergency fixer.
The Midas Touch - In addition to our current range of colours (orange, white and black) we’re also offering a Kickstarter exclusive limited run of gold sticks - shown here as our Gold FixIts seal of approval.
We're also offering free shipping worldwide on all pledges £8 or less!
And now it's time for our Oscars thank you moment...
We'd love to take the opportunity to thanks all those involved in supporting us in the creation of FixIts!
Thank you to everyone at Chris Lefteri Design who've been, through no choice of their own, thrown into many parts of this project.
Thank you to Jaime who's been leading our creative marketing efforts with the upmost patience and skill. Without you we would not have been able to deliver this project on time. Your understanding of this brand is second to none and we're glad to have you as part of our team!
Thank you to Gianni, whose photography and videography has helped us communicate this product and the brand we envisioned.
Thank you to Here Design who worked on the branding and graphics of our project!

A special thanks to our trademark agent David Gill from Gill & Gill for his invaluable support and advice in arranging and filling all the necessary IP.
And of course, we want to thank our friends and family for their patience, encouragement and comfort over the past three and some year journey this has been. We know many of you are currently helping us spread the word about this project. You are our first brand ambassadors and we cannot thank you enough for your support.
Risks and challenges
We are materials experts who have taken this on as a studio project over the past 3 years. We've worked to deliver products to clients of our own but never have we done something like this for ourselves. So we've worked hard to address all foreseeable issues and delays that could be created.
We are glad to say that we have given this our fullest attention and are production ready as of the launch of this campaign! We didn't want to launch a Kickstarter campaign until we were absolutely sure we could deliver the product we had envisioned. Working with fantastic UK manufacturing we're proud to launch on Kickstarter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
