Small(1/2Ē) rip on top of canvas

I got involved with cleaning adhesive left from the Velcro fail for my pop up gizmos,from outside top of tent bunk ends and the adhesive was and still is impossible to get off,but thatís now the least of my worries. Using scrapers and blades(I know,not the smartest thing to do next to canvas) itís possible I might have caused a rip in the top of canvas.i have a 2016 shamrock 233s. I will try to add a picture of the tear(hole).does anyone know the best way to fix this?

for adhesive did you try Goo Gone? can get it on amazon or any hardware or Walmart

I would use Gorilla Tape to fix the hole, both inside and outside... just a small piece will hold

For the repaid Id get apiece of canvas 3X the size of the tear. Cut it in a circle.

Then use Shoe Goo or Lexel to coat one side fully and completely to a thickness of about 1/8" or so.

Then apply it to the tear with a piece of wax paper on top so you can press without getting the adhesive on yourself.

Have someone on the other side hold something hard and flat on the other side so you have something to press against. You are trying to get the adhesive into and hold onto the fabric of both the patch and the piece being repaired.

When the adhesive cures you will have a flexible waterproof repair.

PS, if some of the adhesive leaks from around the edges of the patch....LEAVE IT ALONE!!

Might try using some of this tape to fix the rip in the canvas.
