    Default Grypmat , as seen on shark tank

    Saw this on Shark Tank last night when (recorded a week ago or so). A little pricey, but it looks like a pretty handy think to have around the shop.

    All of the sharks wanted in on it. Cuban made the point that it was a product were there was no fear of lack of sales. Might make a decent Christmas present.

    Looks handy for mechanical work, even on the car.

    I wonder if a film of dust would interfere with the stickiness.

    Needless to buy product at this pre-mass-market price point - they are just re-spinning the widely discounted soft silicon cookware available in many tool friendly shapes. Note how Laurie immediately commented on exactly how heat resistant it is. Mark gave her patronizing praise for random statistics, not knowing is was a well known cookware formula (slightly altered). At most I would just put soft foam sticky tape under a pan found at a Goodwill shop with a card saying "Sorry, I'd like to give a nicer gift, but I am being financially raped by the taxman".

    Yes, I thought they were a pricey way to buy a variation of silicone cookware. I'll wait until the good old Chinese produce them in the millions.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    The ones I saw a dozen or so years ago, needed to be rinsed off with plain water every so often to keep the surface clean and sticky.
