I knew it would not take long for someone would say something. :lol: I was going through one of my "Lets see what all I can do with Heat Shrink" phases!
Did you also notice the Pot Condoms I invented. :lol:

I think I'll start doing that. I accidentally ordered the perfect size of heatshrink to fit around the pots. 8)

Those look splendid and at .03 a piece is not bad at all. See I thought I came up with this all on my own.
Well actually I did. For now mine will have to do unless there is a group buy on pot condoms. :lol:
And I doubt there are enough builders around here that would take that very seriously.

I think I get about 30 - 40 out of a yard piece of Heat Shrink and I find that the 3M double side sticky tape works much better on pots with the condoms!! :thumbsup

I've been wondering how you made those! They look real good and fortunately I haven't had any problems with pots shorting my builds to need these. But I think I miswell start on this anyways! It makes a build look a lot better! Great invention!
