I woke up at 2am this morning and the first thing that came to my mind was HOT GLUE. I realized how much I use hot glue and was going to come on the forum and talk about it today. But after seeing this thread, I thought it would be better nestled under here. Hot glue is my favorite fastener because it is strong, versatile, and non-marring it is.  I use it all the time to temporarily mount something somewhere. For example, I was able to mount an extension cord on the inside of my desk to have a little charging option inside of there, it is only held on with hot glue, and it holds very well. If I ever wanted to remove it, I would just have to pull it off, and the hot glue would peel off as well and there would be no trace of it ever being there. I also like putting dabs of hot glue onto the bottom of things to prevent slipping, sliding, and scuffing. I have a fan that always seems to rotate itself out of position and ends up pointing not at me. But after putting a bit of hot glue on the bottom it stays put on a table and doesn’t rattle or rotate. I’ve put hot glue on the bottom of boxes, ammo cans, printers, and more to prevent them from scratching the delicate wood underneath, otherwise it would be sharp metal, wood, or plastic against the wood table. Hot glue can act as a good little rubber bumper on closet drawers to prevent wood against wood sound. It becomes a nice dampened thud with hot glue.  It’s a great fastener, cheap, and has so many uses.
