Patch Things Up: Tear-Aid Kits

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

A damaged awning can be an expensive fix, as even a small tear can lead to a complete replacement if left unchecked. Tear-Aid patches provide a simple method of repairing holes and tears. Made from an abrasion-resistant elastomer and a strong adhesive formulated for high bond strength, the patches absorb force on impact and return to their original shape and size, according to the manufacturer. And they’re not just for awnings. Tear-Aid Type A kits are designed to work on most fabrics and have some other surprising applications such as rubber, nylon and non-oiled leather, as well as aluminum and fiberglass. Type B kits are for vinyl and vinyl-coated surfaces.

MSRP: From $9.99 | 800-937-3716 | www.tear-aid.com
