Simply keep an appropriate industrial-grade vinyl repair kit on hand, and you'll be prepared to quickly fix punctures or tears without suffering from extended project down-time. For a very small investment, you can have peace of mind that you will be prepared.

Note: If you didn't purchase your vinyl product from GEI Works, we'll need a little help from you. Let us provide you with the right patch kit by telling us what the type of product is, how you're using it, and the type, weight, and color of the vinyl fabric. If there were any specialized coatings applied (such as for potable water, fuel, or UV coatings), that's helpful information to have as well.
How to Use the Vinyl Repair Kit
Using your vinyl repair kit couldn't be simpler. Start by cleaning and sanding the area to be patched. Apply the adhesive and place the patch. Then use the seam roller (provided in the vinyl patch kit) for maximum adherence and a full seal. Apply another layer of adhesive. (Detailed instructions are provided with each vinyl repair kit.)
Our standard Vinyl Repair Kits includes what's needed for on-site repair:
- 1 square foot vinyl repair patch
- 4 ounces of adhesive, specifically formulated for use with vinyl fabrics
- Seam roller
- Resealable storage bag
- Repair instructions
*Vinyl Repair Kits can be customized to include larger patches, but a 1 square foot patch is all that's normally needed. If you're interested in a kit to fit a larger scale repair, just ask. We're here to help.
