Electrical tape will always be useful for certain applications, but for a strong, flexible, watertight connection that won’t ever unravel, you can’t beat liquid tape. We used it a few months ago to fix a bunch of frayed electrical cords in our shop, and so far it’s held up great. It’s also perfect for protecting wires on motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, cars, trucks and trailers, or any connection that’s subjected to vibration or exposed to the outdoors.
You’ll need to apply a few coats of liquid tape to get a good, thick layer (five minutes between coats), and it’s a little messy to work with, so plan on a few drips. The product shown here is made by Gardner Bender and is available in black, red, green and white. You’ll find it for $7 in the electrical department at home centers.
