Side peg chipped off

My starter peg chipped right off my favorite green loom. It's a pain to use it without it, but I don't like the "line" ya get when using one of the loom pegs. Any ideas? I thought about just using a piece of tape. Hmmmm.

Push Pin Fix
by: Anonymous

I broke my starting peg off a long time ago...for a replacement, I used a push pin/thumb tack (the type with the tall head on it). I used a hammer to carefully pound it into place. After it was in, I pulled it out, put a squirt of super glue on the metal part of the push pin, and put it back into the hole. This has been holding up for over 2 years.

Visit your local hardware store and purchase some Epoxy Putty. NOT the liquid epoxy! You'll be able to easily fill in the chip, and if it's not as smooth as you'd like, sand it with fine grit sandpaper.
