3. Wait approximately 2 minutes, then press the handle into the glue and wipe away and excess glue with a damp cloth.

4. For a maximum-strength bond, allow 24 hours for cure time. We suggest waiting at least a few days before using the tool again.



Your shovel should work good as new, and you can get back to making your garden look gorgeous.
