  • Stop runs in seams or small punctures in awnings, tents, tarps or other outdoor gear before they get bigger. The flexible Vinyl Mender can conform to any shape and hold up through wind, weather and wear.

Fix Tears and Holes in Awnings

Your outdoor awnings and canopies provide shade on those hot summer days, but over time tears, rips and holes can appear, letting in sun and rain. Keep a bottle of Tear Mender on hand for quick repairs to awnings, patio umbrellas and outdoor cushions.

For small holes or tears in canvas, vinyl or mesh awnings, cut a patch of Vinyl Mender to size. Apply the patch over the hole and smooth firmly in place. The adhesive will bond strongly to most awning materials.

For larger rips or holes, you may need to apply a patch on both sides of the awning for the most durable repair. Bond will be flexible and water resistant. For best results do not apply Tear Mender directly to your fabric. Instead pour out a small portion onto any hard surface. Using your finger tip, dip it into the glue and carefully spread on a thin coat, press and let dry. You may also use an applicator– such as a toothpick, Popsicle stick or makeup brush. Tear Mender contains natural latex and may cause an allergic reaction. NOTE: when mending fine fabrics, sheer fabrics and black fabrics, always do a test to check for discoloration. Tear Mender dries to a beige color so be sure to apply with care.

When mending a hole a patch will work well. Cut a piece of fabric larger than the hole, lay it on the underside or inside of your item and trace around the outer edge. Apply Tear Mender to the inside of that area as well as the back of the patch. Place the patch over the hole and press firmly, let dry. (Tear Mender is made from all natural materials, will not stick to any hard surface, to remove simply rub with your finger until glue balls updo not wipe up with a cloth as Tear Mender will permanently stick to fabric) .

You've planned the perfect summer party and want everything to go off without a hitch. Keep some Tear Mender on hand for any little emergencies that pop up. When a beach ball gets a hole or a pool toy springs a leak, just whip out the Tear Mender and patch it up in seconds. Your guests will never even know there was an issue. With Tear Mender, you've got repairs covered for cushions, umbrellas, floats, and more. Focus on enjoying the sun and your friends rather than worrying about any little tears or holes ruining your fun.
