How to repair a hole on a bike bag.

 

If you find a hole on your bike bag, you can easily fix it with a patch.

In this tutorial we will show you step by step how to do this.

 

Tools Needed

Damp cloth, sand paper (120s), heavy object for weighing down the patch as it dries, patch, TPU adhesive

 

Difficulty

Easy

Time Needed

10 minutes

p

Your patch should be round as square patches are more likely to become unsealed.

 

^

Step One

Clean the surface around the repair carefully with a damp cloth. This is very important for the patch to hold well.

 

^

Step Two

Roughen both sides (underside of the patch and the damaged area) with 120 grit sandpaper.

 

^

Step Three

Mark the border with a pencil so that you’ll know exactly where to apply the adhesive.

 

^

Step Four

Spread the TPU adhesive evenly and completely over the patch  and on the bag in the marked area.

Apply the adhesive to both the patch and the damaged area and let it dry for 3 minutes before you press the patch onto the bag in the marked area.

Step Five

Press the patch onto the marked area and weigh it down with something heavy.

 

 

Finished! You did it.
