    I found a tear in my bag’s rain cover the other day. After looking on the web for a suitable patch to fix it and seeing some quite absurd prices with even more absurd postage costs, I thought I’d try a Park Patch as I’ve got a load sitting about.

    It’s gone on beautifully to be fair! A few days in it’s still holding a perfect seal too. Will see how long it lasts and keep an eye on it, but so far it looks like a neat and cheap solution to a small tear in waterproof fabric 😀

    Repaired a split in my camelback about 5 years ago, still going strong.

    I’ve used them to prevent cable rubbing on the paint.

    This works but they go yellow eventually and are a pig to get off

    +1 for using them to protect the frame against cable rub

    Never really been a fan of them as patches tbh but they’re ace at other stuff

    Yes a +1 for frame protection against frame rub.

    Also use on hoses to stop them rubbing and have repaired waterproof jackets as well 🙂

    Tried once to repair a puncture – useless.

    I used them as frame protection but they wore through to the sticky stuff. Made a right mess that was, as Beaker states, a right pain to remove.

    I prefer the Topeak flypaper as they seem to be more flexible and hold better (on tubes anyway). I have yet to use on the Camelback, but small tears in a coat will be fine.

    Used them to cover the holes when I removed my shifter windows, still going strong 5 years on.

    I reckon a couple of patches could stop diarrhoea.

    never had any problems with using them for repairing punctures…always work for me.
    as for removing them off the frame…GT-85 seems to do the trick

    I’ve used them on the groundsheet of a tent with no issues.

    I also use the Lezyne ones for cable rub points on the bike frame.

    Stick one over the Japs eye as a cheap form of contraception.
    Your Mrs wont get preggers but you’ll end up with a set of nuts the size of Water Melons.

    glad its not just me. Their glue doesnt like high temperatures, we had a few punctures on exotic riding holidays which were Park self -adhesives peeling off with the glue essentially melting. Will bear in mind for the bladder trick though!

    Got a row of 4 holding my snow board trousers together. Like the anti rub frame patch idea aswell.
