Canvas tents are warmer, sturdier, and last far longer than other types of tents. This is why it’s vital to repair them when they develop a small hole or a rip of any kind.
Here’s how to patch a canvas tent:
- Select a round patch 4 inches larger than your tear
- Make sure your patch lines up and fits the hole
- Cut your patch down to size
- Glue your patch with Barge cement glue, making sure it’s flat
- Patch the other side
- Place weights on each side of the patch overnight
