Complaint Detail(s)

8/13/2015 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Deceptive packaging, when got glue home its less than half filled. So the large container its in is to make consumer think they are getting more. Very misleading want refund I would not of paid for this had I known the products practically empty, I could of bought the smaller size from the competitor brand.

Desired Settlement: I really would want them to stop the deception but know that won't happen so request money back

Business Response:

Thank you for forwarding this concern.   Gorilla Super Glue is packaged by volume, leaving space in the extra thick plastic bottles so the consumer can dispense the product.   The thick plastic bottles product the product from moisture which can harden the glue. We will e-mail the consumer direct and explain the reason our product is packaged as such and make sure the consumer is satisfied.

Thank you,

Tina ********

Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased some glue from them that did not perform. It was a 10 second bond glue (according to their package) so I used it completely in accordance with their packaging instructions on some white pine. It separated , I had to use their other wood glue (which worked great). So I contacted the company and I get an email back with detailed use instructions contrary to the package. They made no offer to refund my $4.99 plus tax . Their response was totally inappropriate as I did buy their product in good faith.

Desired Settlement: Customers are treated with respect. I wasted a lot of time and effort believing their package information. I had to travel back to the store and purchase their conventional glue and then, after notifying them of the problem, did not even get a simple 5 dollar refund offer.

Business Response:

Hi ******,


We are issuing a refund check in the amount of $5.34 to Mr. ********* and will reach out to him today via e-mail, explaining and apologizing for the delay in responding to his BBB complaint.


Please let me know if you have questions or concerns.


Thank you,
