How to clean-up after Tite Chairs® application
Clean hands and skin with soap and water.
I’m concerned that, if this stuff dries quickly, it will be hard to get it on all 3 loose joints and push them together before the first one dries.
There is no need to pull out the loose rungs. The product works best and is designed to penetrate, Put the joints in place as tight as possible and trace around the joint using the applicator tip. The glue will penetrate and tighten the joint within minutes.

Can the tips be cleaned or reused?
Hold the bottle in the upright position with the tip on. Squeeze the bottle to expel any product in tip. Wipe outside of tip with dry paper towel to remove any product, and then release the bottle drawing any remaining product in tip back into bottle. Repeat if needed. Remove the tip, wipe off tip with a dry paper towel, snap on small reusable cap. OR Leave the tip on – store bottle upright. If the tip becomes clogged, cut off the end of the tip. This usually works for 2 or 3 applications.
Here are a few useful tips to make your Tite Chairs® experience more efficient:
- Always use in a downward position. Do not attempt to apply upwards. The product is very thin and will run downward and not into the area being repaired.
- Be sure to wipe up drips immediately with a dry paper towel.
- It is always best to cover the surrounding area being repaired with plastic or foil to catch any drips or overflow.
- Always make sure the rungs being repaired are tightly in place prior to applying the Tite Chairs®. The thin viscosity allows deep penetration even into seemingly tight areas.
- Just like a Super Glue type product, Tite Chairs® will bond skin. NEVER touch eyes while using the product. Fingernail polish remover works nicely to remove hardened drips of the product.
- The Tite Chairs® is very thin in viscosity and it does not take much to repair a rung.
