I researched the item, before making my selection, and was very pleased with the product. I am very particular with my equipment and repairs, and prefer to make them myself. I mend my wet suits, BCD harness straps/pockets, and even used it to preserve the printed iron on logos that I made for my wet suit... If you are interested in this type repair item, purchase this roll of it. Other venues will sell you a four inch by twelve inch piece for the price of this roll (if not more).

I fixed my boat canvas with Type-A and initially was pleased but then I put 303 Fabric Guard on my canvas and every patch 3/4" wide or less fell off. And all the larger patches lost their adhesion 3/8" around on all sides ----- and its only been two days so I'm not sure how much deeper into the patches the adhesion will fail.

    Bought fabric repair kit for a worn section on one of our towable floats. It was easy to use and has held up in the water. I would definitely recommend this product.

        We have a canvas portable screen room for our travel trailer that got ripped? This tape is so easy to use and adheres well and best of all it does keep out the water!

            Used to repair a Sunfish sail with two tears and two holes. Applied to both sides of the sail. Easy to apply with a helper stretching the sail and has held up well.

                I used this tape to repair a large tear in my pop up camper canvas and it worked better than I thought it would. It held up to a masive rain storm with no leaks and the heat and humidity did not effect it's holding power. I will be buying more as I'm real happy with this product.

                Comments about Tear-Aid Fabric Repair Kit, Type A, 3" x 60" roll:

                This tape was easy to work with. Repaired wrips and holes in the canvas better than anything else I used. There needs to be more than 50 inches of this tspe for the price you pay so you can use it on both sides of any good size tear. Other than that it worked wonders for me.

                  Will it withstand the pressure exerted at a tear site where a towable tube cover is attached to the rope?
