Bees wax installation

This is what FR sent to me to solve my leaky tent end. Anyone know how to apply it? No instructions came with the three bags.

I would think you would have to rub a chunk over the stitching. I would think it would 'melt' into the stitching while in the sun.

Beeswax is a common seam sealer. I've used it on tents and popups. Haven't had to use it on the Shamrock. Yes, just rub it over the stitching. It will fill the needle holes and prevent water leaking in.

They look like pellets. Do you melt them first ?

What I used was in block form. Just rubbed it on the stitching. Don't know what you would do with pellets. Are they somewhat soft and pliable? Can you squeeze them into a block? Sorry I'm not more help.

They are pellets. They are sort pliable, but you really can't squeeze them into a shape. It's almost like I have a pellet for each thread hole.

I would try putting a bunch in a plastic ice cube tray and put it in the microwave to melt. Then let it cool to form a cube. Once cured, rub the wax cube on the stitching.
I've never done it but I'd try it.
