    Have you ever had a leaky water pipe or air hose or maybe you cut your radiator hose like I did far from home and just needed a quick fix and to move on?


    Have you ever had a leaky water pipe or air hose or maybe you cut your radiator hose like I did far from home and just needed a quick fix and to move on?? Well in this video I'll show you something I found recently that can take care of your sticky situation in no time.
    The Tapes I used:
    White Industrial:
    All Rescue Tape Choices:
    Other Choices or Google "Self Fusing Silicone Tape":


    I Bought that stuff about 10 years ago at a trade show

    I love how you destroy your stuff for our entertainment and learning. ๐Ÿ‘


    Years back, I had a rock put a hole in my radiator on my dirt bike. Was the first 15 minutes of riding, on a weekend trip. I used an old timer trick to get through the weekend and it worked. It was just a pin hole though. I used a pepper packet from a fast food bag. Got me through the weekend and sealed the leak great. It wouldn't work in your case of course, but it does for small punctures. Also, I'd never recommend repairing hydraulic lines after Googling "hydraulic injection injury". That is some serious shit. Google it at your own risk of mental scarring lol.

    How the hell that gonna work in an emergency!????!!?!

    Yeah theres an even easier fix it's called heat shrink

    You can go ahead and use that knife and destroy all new jeeps. They are straight up garbage. Chrysler/fiat ruined jeep.

    What use could I think of..? The first that that comes to mind is taping Jeremys hands to the bed… uhh never mind, move along! Hahaha!


    Powerstroke swap the commander


    Have used RTape for oh so many things over oh so many years.

    Frank Pryor

    THANKS !!! That's a need to know and I haven't even thought about that. Yup I'm going to carrying that for backup from now on…for sure ๐Ÿ‘Œ Good advice just in case ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘


    Make a boat using a alum frame with this stuff!

    Take it Laesie

    I think (at least the tape I have) it's self vulcanizing tape!

    Pete Simmons

    flex steel ….lol

    Kylan Cook

    This is the kind of humorous video I have been missing from you Matt! Well done!


    Just blew the hose on my xj needed this lol

    Lance Crawley

    Working on electrical in helicopters we use it to slow down the wear of wires due to the vibration. I really never knew it'd work for that purpose. We do call it pressure tape though!!

    Doug Perkins

    good to seal a copper still too….so i have been told


    Nice video thanks! Quick tips… stretch it FAR (like until you think it's about to break) and make multiple layers… they sell this stuff at Harbor Freight but DON'T buy it, I've never had it work well so get something better quality! Also, cut it lengthwise into like 4mm strips and use it to reinforce phone charging cables! I like to wrap new cables as soon as I buy them and different colors make it easy to tell which is yours!

    Ive actually used that stuff to fix a pin hole in a fuel line on my old XJ. Wrapped it about 5 times in that tape then coated it with a layer of JB weld and heat wrap. Help up for almost 2 years before it started leaking again. We also use that stuff at my job to seal large gates high pressure heating and cooling hoses for our machinery when the spring a leak in the middle of a production run and we don't have time to replace the hose itself.

    I always forget about this stuff! Our road techs use this on emergency roadcalls on semi tractors with blown hoses. I'm gonna need to toss some in the back of my ZJ

    Eric Hughes

    Good to know thanks ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

    at 4:35, when you stretched it, it reminds of tv/satellite engineers self amalgamating tape they waterproofed coax joins with.

    Desvio Off Road

    You're a mess bro ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚


    and some idot "fixes" his wifes break line with this and blames you now… worlds full of idiots gota watch out for for self put a disclaimer on there

    Bert Hansen

    I once used duct tape and super glue for a ruptured radiator hose. It held for the 500+ mile trip back home before I replaced it.

    James Bullard

    Best use for silicone tape is electrical, super easy to wrap neatly and it's the easiest to cut after wrapping wires

    Kris Nicholson

    Self amalgamating tape..

    Ryan Tidwell

    Nice tip. Thanks.

    Gordon GMan

    Really kool stuff.

    Matt Browder

    Hey Matt I was a jet engine mechanic in the navy and we used that stuff all the time on f-18 engines. We called ours cherry tape because it was red, Iโ€™m wondering if it was stronger for military applications. Btw loved the goofiness and editing reminds me of the really old material

    I just wrap it in a lot of duck tape, and keep a big jug of water in the bed….
    The farther you need to go, the bigger jug of water you need…


    Does heat help it seal better maybe? Never used it but seeing it fix that radiator hose is pretty Kool

    Time Table

    Shoot I have a repair on my air hose that has been Goldie over a year now with duck tape

    Wrangler Addiction

    I had to fix the compressor hose in my jeep on the trail i used electrical tape and zip ties , it lasted for like 5 more trips , iโ€™ll probably get this stuff and try it ๐ŸคŸ

    Stuart Brand

    So say this is a โ€˜get back to the truckโ€™ fix. Could you just use electrical tape? I feel like itโ€™d be a similar result, especially if you cleaned and dried the hose first.


    I use it on flexible sump pump discharge hose – that stuff is always cracking from ice in the winter and with the tape, I don't need to buy new hose all the time.
