We love heat shrink! We use it for all sorts of handy projects. Use it to reinforce connections, protect devices, and electrically isolate exposed solder joints. We worked with a manufacturer to create a kit that we would use: lots of colors, lots of sizes, nothing too long. We specially requested some of the sizes with heat sensitive glue which significantly increases stress relief and water proofing. This kit includes 95 pieces of heat shrink, all of varying colors and sizes, and comes in a clear bag. All pieces are 10cm in length.
Bag includes the following diameters, 5 pieces of each:
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

Just received my heat sink kit and it looks just great. A good selection of sizes and just the right length for most of my needs. Keep up the good work.
I love this kit! It comes at a great price, much less than I've had to pay at other electronics parts vendors, and it comes in lots of sizes, ranging from small enough for thread-width wire to large enough for thick cables and small circuit boards! Also, it has multiple colors, which is real useful in a large project with lots of color-coded wires, and it shrinks a LOT, and without much finesse.
Great product! Thanks
I love this stuff, and it was very appealing that included both the dual wall adhesive kind and the regular. However, I wish the adhesive and regular kinds were separate, so you don't have to guess which one will have adhesive. Other than that, I highly recommend it.
So I was looking at replacing one of the u joint traps underneath my sink, but alternatively decided that we could utilize sliced segments of heat shrink that were then melted back together to create a temporary patch for the workshop sink. Much quicker than replacing the u joint trap. I could not find the MSDS on how long it takes for these to degrade when exposed to temperature swings common on the sink, but who knows how long this patch will hold! Will update with findings on how long it will last. edit: hey what's with this /f am I branded?
I would have liked more colors and at least one of each size in that color, in addition to the good number of red and black.
