Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mittens re-insulated wires the rat's chewed on
A rat made its home in my car's engine compartment and proceeded to chew on various wires under the hood, severing one wire which caused the car to barely run. After mending a broken wire, I was able to put some insulation on several bare, chewed-up wires, applying Plasti Dip black rubber coating with a Popsicle stick and a barbecue skewer. Then I rounded up a few hand tools and dipped them in Plasti Dip and hung them to dry on a magnetic tool holder. The consistency of the dip is similar to super thick gravy. Make sure the dip is at room temperature or a bit warmer when you use it. I'd recommend using Plasti Dip outdoors and wearing disposable gloves. I was fooled by the yellow picture of pliers on the container, the dip was black in color, and I would have preferred yellow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JBToys Tip to keep unused product from hardening
There's an old painter's trick that can be used with this product. After you've dipped a few tools and you are ready to set it on the shelf for a while, secure the lid (tape it on if you have to) and turn the can upside down. This seals out the air and keeps it from hardening. This works with paint cans as well

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VanGuy Storing Plast-dip
A simple and surprisingly effective solution is good old aluminum foil. Cut or rip yourself off a little section and place it over the mouth of the container before putting the plastic cap back on. This trick is only necessary for original Plasti Dip. The aerosol formula will keep perfectly with just the standard plastic cap that accompanies the canister.
Another effective solution is to store brush-on Plasti Dip in a standard quart- or pint-size paint can, the type with a lid that needs to be closed with a hammer and opened with a screwdriver. Just pour the leftover ‘Dip into the paint can and close ‘er up. This storage method is slightly more difficult, if only because you need to have a spare paint can at your disposal. You may want to keep the original Plasti Dip container handy, as well, in case you need to ‘Dip an item that’s longer** than your paint can.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Upchuckjohnnie Worked great!
After purchasing the black Plasti Dip I was having second thoughts about keeping it as I wasn't sure it would work. Almost returned it to Home Depot because the price was a bit high to experiment with, but decided to give it a try. Glad I tried it as it worked great! Used 3 coats on a metal rod to improve grip. Perfect!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnSamJohn GREAT PRODUCT.....BUT
Started using "Plasti Dip" several years ago. Wonderful product..
>>RELIABILITY - Recommend 2 initial coats (dips) then it has lasted for 7+ years in my case
>>EASE OF USE - Dip it / brush it on. Either way, simple to apply and very strong / lasting
>> PRICE - Excellent value for good quantity of product
>>I found that can after can, once opened, would gel / harden even after being "sealed" with the supplied plastic snap on lid. Tried first applying kitchen cling wrap to can, then the lid. Did no good. After several weeks, signs of solidifying were evident.
OTHER THAN THAT, NO COMPLAINTS AT ALL.
Makes tool handles easier to grip / more comfortable in the hands / etc. etc.
No complaints whatsoever 9except as above)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tomas FTI, Beware
I bought this a while back to coat some tools. If you buy this you should use as much as you can, over a month the product you don't use will solidify to a stiff consistence. What you don't use will be wasted. It's a good product as long as you use all of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henry Can coat almost anything when done right
I purchased a few cans of this to coat my new white Granturismo. I had seen a few people use it on their white cars and I really liked the frosted matte look you get. I used 3 gallons of 50/50 mix Plastidip and thinner with a spray gun. 5 coats later I was really pleased with the outcome. The bugs come off easily and it protects the front and hood from rock chips on the highway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SkippysDad Fixed my ice chest!
I had an old stainless steel ice chest with a plastic liner on my pontoon boat that had cracks in the bottom. After months of searching for ways to fix it, I came across a review of people that used Plasti Cote on their cars. I figured, i will give it a try. It worked outstanding. Looks great and is very durable.
