How to Fix a Crack in Glass
Cracked Glass (Dawn Allynn)

It only takes a pebble to crack a piece of glass. A crack in glass will continue to spread like a spider web until it destroys your entire piece of glass. You may be able to delay repairing a home window, but with a cracked windshield, your car will not pass a safety inspection.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Windshield Pro Glass Repair Kit
  • Window cleaner
  • Paper towel
  • Glass scraper

  1. 1

    Determine whether the crack is too big to repair. Typically, you can repair a crack that is smaller than the palm of your hand. If the crack has spread farther than that, you need to buy a new sheet of glass.

  2. 2

    Purchase a Windshield Pro Glass Repair Kit (see resources). This kit gives you the same tools that a professional would use if you asked one to fix your windshield. The kit costs less than £3.

  3. 3

    Squirt window cleaner on the glass and clean both sides of it. Use your paper towels to wipe the dirt and cleaner off the glass.

  4. 4

    Read the directions completely on the Windshield Pro Glass Repair Kit.

  5. 5

    Squirt the resin into the cracks. Start in the centre of the crack and work your way out.

  6. 6

    Apply your bridge to the crack. It is the piece that looks like a suction cup. Use the metal bar to tighten the bridge in to place.

  7. 7

    Remove the bridge and use a glass scraper to scrape off excess resin. This won't be too hard to remove, so do not apply too much pressure.

  8. 8

    Clean the windshield one more time.

Tips and warnings

  • Fix your crack while it is small so that it does not get out of control.
  • If you get any resin on your hands, wash them immediately. You don't want your fingers to get stuck together.
