Rescue Tape may well be the new duct tape. It is a self-fusing silicone repair product that works well for emergencies while also handling all-purpose repairs.

You simply stretch Rescue Tape and wrap it around any project onto itself, and it will quickly produce a permanent, airtight, watertight seal. The tape may be used on leaking hoses, electrical wiring, tool handles, or as a shrink wrap.
