Got a hole in your tent? No problem. Patch it up with this handy patch kit. Includes 36 patches, a 2 oz. bottle of fabric glue (Tear Mender), and repair instructions. You get four patches of each size and color (36 total). Sizes: 1.5, 2, and 3.5 inches. Colors: Tan, brown, and natural. Please note that the color and canvas match current production color and fabric. Dye lots vary, and some fading will occur to fabrics exposed to sunlight. In other words, your patch kit will more than likely be a shade off.
The adhesive glue is a natural latex that can be applied with your fingers. It is quick drying, waterproof, uv resistant, flexible, and permanent. A great solution for holes under 2 inches in diameter. For repairs larger than that, you should take it to a local canvas shop for repair.

Unfortunately I put a hole in the side of my tent because the pole slipped off the know on the top bar while setting up. The patch kit worked very well in repairing the hole.
My 4 year old son pinched the front of the tent while hammering in a stake. Small hole was patched with the kit. Works great! Matches tent colors perfectly.
Colors are spot on. This kit is easy to use. We were able to patch a hole in the side of the tent with zero problems. Thank you.
I like the different sizes. It helps to be able to cover small holes with one large patch. Thanks
A chipmunk somehow got inside my tent and decided to chew his way out! Made a hole in the canvas roughly large enough to shove your hand through right where the wall meets the floor. I was very upset and concerned about how to ensure a weather proof repair for the damage. Seemed like the worst possible location for a hole! I called customer service and was reassured this patch kit would be perfect and it was!! After patching my tent with this kit, I feel very confident the repair will be as robust as any other part of the tent. And the matching color made this repair pretty subtle visually. To make the repair, I made a platform from a 5 gallon bucket and a cookie sheet as a support for the area needing repairs. I made a pencil outline of the the patch area on the tent. Then, using my fingers I spread the adhesive on both tent and on the patch itself. I needed to apply 2 overlapping patches to ensure adequate coverage. This was all on the outside of the tent. I repeated the process on the inside of the tent. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is because when I called I was told to add the comment John would include a 1 square foot of matching canvas I could use for this repair since the circle patches were too small. I added the comment but, did not get the larger piece of material as promised. That's why I had to cut and modify the supplied circles in order to ensure half inch overlap of the patch edges on the hole.
I found it best to put a patch on each side of the tear (inside and outside) and it held in rain and when washing the tent off
works as advertised except if using in 100 pus degrees (no recommended) you must work extremely fast before it starts drying up.
