We have all tried fast stick on patches to repair holes in materials, and even stuck on duck tape hoping that would work. Whilst many of these quick fixes on the go are temporary at best, this one is simply amazing – Tear-Aid works. Its compact, simple and requires no sewing or special tools to do a great repair job. Tear-Aid Fabric Repair Kit Gold is one of the most useful pieces of kit you could carry with your camping gear.
This see-through patch works with all colours and is suitable to use with canvas, rubber, aluminium, nylon, polyester, fibreglass, stainless steel, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane, and Gortex. Just cut it down to the size you need, and stick it down for instant adherence to your chosen surface.
This strong patch will hold air and water under pressure even when it’s stretched, is UV resistant to inhibit yellowing and won’t turn gummy in high heat making it ideal for use in the harsh Australian conditions.
Tips – Make sure the surface you are sticking to is clean and dry by using the alcohol wipes supplied. Cut a patch slightly larger than the tear size and round the four corners so these edges cant lift easily. Peel back the backing tape carefully by approx. 5mm and stick to the fabric, then peel back the remaining backing tape and stick down whilst avoiding touching the sticky side with your fingers. Push down firmly and rub aggressively to push out any bubbles to ensure a good bond is achieved. This will ensure no oils get on the sticking surface and an excellent bond is achieved.
“Used this on a nylon tent fly. Works really well. Easy to apply, even around stitching. I am going to buy a second packet for my spares box. I would recommend buying x2 boxes because depending on the size of the area you are fixing you may not have enough for your next tear or hole.”
