How to fix a windshield crack with krazy glue
Road debris and rocks can fly on a windshield when the tires of other vehicles’ collect them and throw them back in a car or truck next. A windshield crack may seem small when they first appear, but can run and become quite large. Changes in cool weather at night to warm up in the day can also cause the crack to spread through the windshield. Overnight freezes can even carry a crack to expand and break the entire windshield of a car.
Open the Krazy Glue by turning the cap counterclockwise. Use a pair of scissors to trim the end of the tube so that the liquid can flow.
Apply Krazy Glue to the inside of the windshield along the length of the crack. Tighten the tube slightly as it starts at one end of the crack and move to the other end.
Run the Krazy Glue in a thin line along the crack with a cotton swab. Wipe any excess glue with a cotton swab.
Apply Krazy Glue to the outside of the windshield along the crack in the same way.
