2 hole patching products that work

Recommended Posts

Guest

Yup, the mice got to my 4x8 portable this year. Luckily I still have the leftover canvas from the shop. I ran into Fleet Farm to see what they had and I got 2 products, Tear Mender, and Sportsmans Goop. Now, I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to dump like this but I figured its cheaper than new canvas. I tested both brands tonight on canvas. Goop takes a bit longer. Both are very flexible. Turns out they are both great. But the tear mender takes the cake. Its much easier to apply and seems a bit stronger. If you still think its a cheap gimmick,....Try tearing it appart.

My Trap II canvas tent has had its share of tears. I either sew in new canvas, use the self-adhesive fabric patches available at fabric stores, or use the hot glue with glue gun that Mrs. Catfish has for craft stuff. All work pretty well. In the end, patches are fastest, sewing slowest but longest-lasting and glue gun a good intermediate. grin.gif

By the way, I've taken light canvas and cut and hemmed it, sealing the hems with the hot glue, then glueing the canvass to the slits up the side of the Trap to seal out unwanted breezes, and it's holding like gangbusters. grin.gif

I've used the Sportsmans Goop for many things. Boat lift canopies, camper canopies, waiders, shoes, boots, etc. It really works well initially but it seems like it may start to try cracking apart after a few months of the initial application. I put a second application over it and never seen a problem.

    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
