pic would help. what kinda poi?



different glues work best in different situations but being plastic i'm guessing not flexible so superglue (runny cyanoacrylate stuff) would be best if you're not bothered about white smoky stains around the crack

Posted:For hairline cracks in hard plastic superglue is the best, as it gets drawn into the cracks before it sets due to capillary action. Use the good stuff though, the cheap superglue is too thick, and doesn't stick properly either.

You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

Posted:Larger cracks, you can used exterior sealant (if you don't mind leaving it to set for a few days) as it will set flexible, and transparent (depending on what you buy)

Posted:Thanks for the suggestions guys I'll keep it in mind if I have to fix them again in the future, I'll be sending them back instead though and get a replacemnt. Yes they can brake easily but it was my fault in thee first place and they light so well I just cant say goodbye to them.

Posted:You could try covering them in clear silicone sealant. That was they would have a squishy boucy tough covering that the light would glow through.
