How to repair a hole in bug netting

Posted by: Hello Kammok

While all our gear is made to last, the thin mesh fabric of insect netting may get tears from being out in the elements, being stored next to sharp objects or accidents that are bound to happen while spending time outside. 

We prefer using patches to fix small holes in mesh fabric. This is something you can do at home to extend the life of your gear. If the insect netting on your Kammok gear has large tears or seems irreparable, remember Kammok gear has a lifetime warranty.

To repair holes in your Dragonfly, Mantis or Sunda insect netting, we recommend using the Gear Aid Mesh Patches for a quick fix. Here’re step-by-step instructions on repairing your bug netting. 

 Step 1: Lay your ripped mesh fabric onto a flat surface.

Step 2: Open your Gear Aid Mesh Patches and peel one of the patches. 

Step 3: Center the patch over the damaged area and press firmly for about 30 seconds to apply the first patch. 

Step 4: Flip the mesh fabric over and peel the second Gear Aid Mesh Patch

Step 5: Repeat the process on the other side. Lay the second patch evenly on top of the first one and press firmly for about 30 seconds to apply. Give is a good rub to make sure the patch is firmly applied. 

You’re all set! The mesh fabric is now ready for the next time you want to spend time outside.
