Glue Looper Lets You Use Adhesives With Zero Mess


Any time you’re using glue for any type of project, expect a mess. You’re going to get glue on your fingers, all over the table, and, pretty much, everything else in the vicinity. The Glue Looper is a tool for using adhesives without all the mess.

Billed as a “micro-glue applicator,” the tool allows you to apply a very thin but sufficient amount of glue to the sides of any objects you’re affixing without using your hands. That way, you can put just the necessary amount of adhesive to properly attach them, eliminating the dripping excess glue that normally create a mess after squeezing the objects together.


The Glue Looper isn’t new, by the way, as it’s been around since 2013. That version, however, is specifically designed to work with low-viscosity adhesives, while this new model, which they’re calling version 3, is built for working with medium- and high-viscosity glue and model cement. Like the original, the idea is to put a thin amount of glue on the surrounding flat surface and apply it through the central loop, relying on good, old capillary action to ensure that the glue (which will hang off the loop) touches the surface of the part you’re affixing first. This way, you can get glue onto cracks and harder to reach surface areas while using a very small amount of adhesive. Similar to the original, the tool is designed to slot onto any knife handle with a flat clamping front vise.

A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Glue Looper. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $10.

    I’ve actually never seen the first version of this product but I’m so excited to hear this exists. If you’re anything like me, then you know how you can find a way to get your glue on just about everything around you. I swear, I can take my sweet time, set up a safe little area where I won’t let the project leave and I will still later find glitter, glue, and excess materials… everything just spread out throughout the house. I’m slightly exaggerating but not by far. I’m glad they are upping the ante this time and using higher velocity glue and even model cement. This is going to change the game for so many people out there!
