    So I was inspecting my new to me pop up and noticed the vinyl tent material had two pin holes and one small 1/16"or so tear. Can anyone recommend a good product to patch the tent material?

    Thanks in advance - Nomad

    bear creek canvas recommended "Performix VLP" for the pin holes in my vinyl, i had to order it online since I could not located it in town. (I havent used it yet because I want to give everything a nice clean down inside and out before I repair it.)

    Some have used Shoe Goo or one of the more goo-like tent sealers for pin holes. For tears, many have had good luck with Tear-Aid. They make a vinyl and a fabric version. I bought it at Amazon and a sporting goods store, I think I've seen it at Walmart.

    Shoe Goo or Goop.... Same stuff... You can put on a blob and smooth it with a wet finger. It sticks great, but will peel off and not leave a mess if you want it off later.
