Overview

Did you know that duct tape can turn any item of clothing into rainwear? That duct tape over a computer screen will keep your kids from surfing naughty sites on the Web? That a perfect solution for those easy-to-lose TV remotes is to duct tape them to your arm? (Not only won't you lose it, you'll never have to relinquish control over it, either!) But can you also believe that Jim and Tim's creative ideas for duct tape spawned not just one bestselling book, but three, plus a calendar? And now the ultimate collection?

With two-thirds of the material drawn from their previous books and calendars and one-third all-new, The Jumbo Duct Tape Book is pure nuttiness to the nth degree. The premise is right there, on page one: "One rule can get you through life. It if ain't stuck and it's supposed to be, duct tape it." But of course it's the interpretation that counts-like duct taping the gas pedal for cruise control, or duct taping marbles to your pressure points for instant reflexology. And then there's bending the rule-transforming sneakers into golf shoes by punching nails through duct tape and taping it to the soles, saving energy by taping all switches in the off position. Plus cosmetic dentistry (use white tape for the "The Mask" look, silver for the metal-mouth bad guy look), cell phone safety (tape phone to side of head while driving so hands stay on wheel), home decorating (use duct tape for easy drapery tie-backs). You can even convert the book to a "hard cover" by taping a piece of 1/4 inch sheet of plate steel to the front and back covers. It'll last for years!

    don't waste your money

    I thought the book would have ideas of things to make with duct tape, instead it had a book full of random, non-creative situations to use duct tape.

    The Duct Tape Guys Rock!

    This is the fourth book that the Duct Tape Guys have written and it combines the best of the first three with about 50% new stuff. I found the book to include the same wacky humor that has kept me buying each of their previous books. I can't wait until they write again, I will buy it in an instant! Extremely creative and FUN! By the way, I use these books to teach brainstorming to my students. They love it!

    From a duct tape enthusiast

    I have been making wallets out of duct tape for a long time, and this book is kind of disappointing. I don't think these guys have ever done anything with duct tape besides wrap stuff in it, and then make lame jokes about it. The book is full of things like 'Body Piercing?! Heck, who wants more holes in their body? Don't pierce, tape!' If you find that funny, there's a chance you'll also like this book.

    Duct Tape Fun

    It is so hilarious. I was laughing out loud at school and everybody was asking what was so funny. When I told them they died laughing too.
