Pin Holes In Kite Sails

(1/4) > >>

Charles P:
 I recently discovered a pin size hole in the sail of one of my favorite kites. The hole is located about half way between the spine and the LE near the upper spreader.
 As it is such a tiny hole I am wondering if this is a problem that needs to be addressed or should I leave it alone?

 I've thought about using fray check on it or find some other fix that is not very visible on the kite but vanity aside the most important thing is to keep my sail intact!!!

 Any and all advise/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Allen Carter:
The CA glue method works great.

Clean both sides of the sail around the hole.

Put a piece of scotch tape over the hole on one side. On the other side push the frayed edges of the hole together to close up the hole as much as possible. Put a tiny drop of CA on the hole (use a pin or other small point to place the glue) wait for the glue to cure, peel of the tape.

This method works for cuts and tears and holes.

No problem, you don't need to repair very tiny holes.

KaoS:
Punch a REALLY big hole on the other side of the kite.  Then you'll realise how insignificant the pin hole is   :D




...or use CA glue like Allen said

Don't worry. You now have a vented kite!!  ;)

... Or use the CA glue to get the std back...
