Very satisfied, worked as it should.

I bought this Tear-Aid Fabric Repair Type A to mend a large tear ( a V shaped tear about 10 inches long each side) on a golf cart canvas cover and a few small holes. It's an old cover but still worth having. It worked very well. I am very happy with the results and should get a few more years out of the cover.

Fantasic for nylon repairs, stays on for years

Dear Sailrite, Thanks for carrying Tear-aid in rolls. I use it for repairing the nylon linings of horse blankets and it stays on thru multiple washings.

I used this product to repair tears in canvas and synthetic material horse blankets at our horse rescue. It works great, and is a less expensive and better value alternative than the products offered by the blanket manufacturers. Will be ordering more as I work through washing and repairing our stack of used blankets.

Tear Aid Fabric is Great Stuff!

This stuff truly works... used it to strengthen areas of "stress" and wearing on canvas boat covers.... really stays on well....

Great repair tape. It gives my Bimini a bit more time until I can make a new one with my sailrite sewing machine.
