Flex Tape

Any one use it? I am looking to use it to fix a leak in a tube.

I keep something similar in my boat tool bag just in case, but I would not use it for a perm fix. This coming from a guy who had to use a pair of channel locks to re-attach my alternator after the bolt broke during a set, then put another 2hrs on the motor riding and cruising around.

I am thinking that it might be an ok permanent fix for an 8 year old tube that I am not ready to replace. Just wondering if it would work under the canvas. Does it hold for more than the 30 commercial?

Jake, just check the reviews. i was looking at this to stop a seam leak on our older camper. after digging around the web I found lots of folks were not happy with flextape, more expensive and not as impressive results as other product.... but great marketing!

For Clarity, never bought or tried it. I did try that flex seal spray and it was crap.

Get yourself a roll of 200 MPH tape and be done with it.

Pic of tube you want to repair? And for the record, I keep this on the boat in case a hose breaks. No interest in purchasing anything sold on an infomercial.

How big is the leak in the Tube? Reason I ask is I've found PVC glue.. just a small dab of it, tends to solve those small pin hole leaks.

How big is the leak and is it in a flat area or a seam? For a small puncture in a flat area, a bicycle tube patch might work. The Park Tools GP-2 patches are a personal favorite.
