Tear Aid has many uses - and getting it by the roll is more cost effective.

I've use the Tear Aid Fabric Repair in countless applications over the years, and buying it by the roll and cutting to the size I need is the the most cost effective method.
I have used this for both emergency or permanent canvas or cotton repair - whether it be for my clothing, backpacking and camping equipment.
The key to making sure it sticks well to the fabric is how clean the fabric is to start. If it is not possible to clean the fabric first, like in the case of emergency or field repair, at least make sure the fabric is dry. If the fabric is dirty, and you don't have any masking tape, use a sacrificial piece of Tear aid to remove the dirt particles, then another piece to join or repair the fabric.
Note this is not the best for cosmetics - if you really care about how it looks when you are done, although this is clear, you are going to see the repair. Plus, if your fingers aren't clean, the sticky side may get polluted and you'll see the fingerprints through the clear tape after installation.
Bottom line is this is a great product if the fabric is clean and dry, and if applied correctly, it can last a long time. For less than ideal conditions, a little more care has to be taken and at least make sure the fabric is dry for best results.
Thanks for reading.
