Hidem gimp, sometimes referred to as hidem welt or hidem trim, provides a finished look that conceals fasteners on the edges of many projects. Because it’s constructed from high-quality, marine-grade vinyl, you can use it to finish any headliner or on the underside of boat cushions. The primary reason for installing hidem gimp is to provide your projects with a professional, clean edge and to hide the staples that keep your fabric together. Sailrite® carries hidem gimp in a wide variety of colors by brands such as Morbern®. Stock up on low-cost hidem welt from our store and enjoy bulk discounts when you buy several feet.
We recommend hidem gimp as a headliner trim where you want to create a neat, hidden welt trim without exposing any staples or tacks. Morbern Hidem Gimp is our top recommended option for this application, as it perfectly creates a smooth finish and is very easy to work with. This 100% vinyl trim is designed for easy installation with any 1/4-inch or 3/8-inch staples. You can easily create a neat, uniform appearance when you pair Morbern trim with Morbern Seabrook Vinyl, Morbern Headliner or Morbern Channeling fabric. Each one comes in a 3/4-inch-wide strip and is sold by the foot at Sailrite.
We offer this high-quality trim in a variety of sleek colors to match your specific project, including clean white, blue, gray and red. Since it’s constructed from 100% vinyl material, you can expect it to endure in any demanding marine environment where moisture, salt and sun exposure are expected. To install hidem gimp, fold the fabric strip back from the middle and place it over the unfinished edge. You can then staple or tack it beneath the folds to hold the trim in place without exposing your fasteners. To see hidem gimp in action, be sure to watch this demo on the Sailrite YouTube channel.
