Phooey. hot glue was a bust - it won't stick to the metal near strongly enough.


Sooo, we try the 'wrap the gap with a little tape' method.


Edit: Doing a little experiment - since I have noticed that the fabric glue is rather tough and sticks like nobody's business, I am testing an extra link with the stuff. It's even the right color!

I had to clip the chain links to manage to get them on the D-rings, so now I have to figure out how to close the gaps so they STAY.

Think of trying JB Weld or Solder? Those usually work great, though it does depend on the colour.

Never heard of it, actually. Does it require a torch or soldering iron?

JB weld is more or less an epoxy. No special handling beyond the norm

I see you've got it fixed now, or I'd have suggested Hypo Cement. It's specifically for jewelry/watch repair.
