    Hello all,

    I have a tile sport tracker and it is suppose to be IP68 but it is not and really like the item and am looking for some kind of waterproof self adhesive material I can just cover it in, the thickness of sellotape. I had a look for some waterproof cases for items that small but the only ones I could find had holes in them and the are suppose to be waterproof so not sure how.
    Someone mentioned they used boot protective silicone around their tracker to make it waterproof but not sure how that would work as I need some kind of very self adhesive material that would literally glue itself onto my tracker which is as thin as sellotape that would keep it waterproof.

    Really hoping someone can suggest something? thanks in advance

    If it is being advertised as waterproof and/ or the instructions say it is and it is not then take it back for a replacement as it is clearly faulty
