HOW TO INSTALL

  1. Start by inflating the packraft to find the spot you want to glue the the traditional patch. Use some soapy water and look for a stream of bubbles if the source is especially difficult to find.

  2. Clean off both the packraft and patches with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry. Tape or mark the area you want to glue using masking tape (just like painting a wall) or a Sharpie.

  3. Once the location has been marked, deflate the packraft.

  4. Apply 3 very thin layers of glue both the patch and the surface of the packraft (6 total layers), alternating between the packraft and patch, allowing the glue to become tacky before each application.

  5. Place the patch and be sure to eliminate any air-bubbles by using a credit card or something else to smooth out the new patch.

NOTE: If you made a mistake and need to adjust the patch, a hair-dryer can be used to reheat the glue during the first 15 minutes after glue application. The hair-dryer should be set on hot while holding it about 6 inches (15cm) from the packraft. It takes less than 30 seconds to reheat the glue.
