Crack Esky

 G'day fellas,

 I have 2  cracks on my esky's lid underside. The cracks are on either side of a wedge where the lid meets the rest of the body of the esky.

Does anyone know how to fix these cracks ? 

Because the crack is along the edge of the lid where it gets pushed into the mouth of the esky, a bad fix will show itself pretty quickly.

Having the cracks will not result in leakage of any kind but will allow hot air getting into the supposedly air-tight lid, thus reducing the insulation properties of the lid of the esky.

 

Thanks

 I have seen them fixed with a soldering iron . Just work it slowly along the crack and use something like a filips head to help mould it together

 Thanks fellas.

 The underside of my esky is white so a white or transparent rod should suffice. May have to borrow your plastic welder Shark1. Appreciate your offer.

 But I may give the SikaFlex Marine Sealant a go first.

 Thanks again.
