Tenacious Tape™ Mini Repair Patches by GEAR AID® are designed specifically for down jacket repair. The unique size fits in between down baffles putting an end to leaky feathers in down puffer jackets. These mini repair patches are ready to use and come pre-cut in 1.5’’ x 2.5’’ sizes. With a convenient pocket pack and no cutting required, simply peel and stick for quick, on-the-go repairs. Ideal for small holes and tears, Tenacious Tape Mini Repair Patches offer an instant and convenient repair solution. Includes six 1.5’’ x 2.5’’ pre-cut repair patches.
We recommend the following for application:
1) Begin by cleaning the repair area with isopropyl alcohol to remove any dirt or body oils which may prevent a good bond. Trim any loose threads.
2) Apply the Tenacious Tape Mini Repair Patch over the rip, tear or hole.
3) Smooth out any bubbles and ensure the edges lay flat. The adhesive will reach full strength after 24 hours.
