DIY kite repair kit
We've put together the smallest kit possible that still covers almost any repair you may need to perform in the wild.
Let's be honest, this is for 'fast and dirty' fixes. It's a great option if you're on the trip of a lifetime and need to get your kite flying but it's not a good option if you're worried about looks or want a repair that doesn't compromise performance at all.
You can fix the kite yourself
glue will set up within 24 hours
Fiberglass tape and glue is almost as strong as a sewn repair (if you do it right)
It will add weight to your kite
Fiberglass tape and glue will not stretch the same as the canopy cloth
you may notice performance issues
This glue is meant to be permanent (good luck getting it off if you don't fix it right the first time)
The repair is going to be unsightly
The backbone of the repair kit is the Seam Grip glue famous in the outdoor community for its incredible strength and flexibility.
