No good story, just a "butterfingers" moment.

Not sure how, but the very top of mine broke. Was getting ready to wash it, and seen it busted, All the readings are still visible. I rolled up some paper towel, stuffed it in the broken end, then taped it up. This should still work fine, shouldn't it?

No broken hydrometer, but the $#@% measurement tube broke. Somehow it became stuck on the drying rack and shattered when I tried to pull it loose. Rage rage rage rage rage... the $#%@#^ drying rack is lucky my kids were around or it'd have met an unpleasant end.

My second broken in under 15 batches total. Good thing I had a backup this time.

The weight of the paper is probably different than the weight of the missing glass, so your readings won't be accurate.

Sadly, after 2 years of service, my first hydrometer is broken. My 21 month old son was down in the basement and accidents happen. He was not hurt, so lesson learned by dad.
