Your tent will serve you well for many years particularly if you know how to mend small holes or tears as you go along. It will extend the life of your tent and improve its performance as well. Your tent can take a beating when you consider the fact that it shelters you from all sorts of weather and is entered and exited about a hundred times a day. Because of this, it can experience occasional damage but you can fix many of these instances yourself and get back to camping and having fun in no time.
Sometimes those little rocks and stones under the tent can work their way through so you’ll want to patch up the hole they leave behind. You can do this some repair tape, or even good old duct tape will do if that’s all you have available. A couple things to keep in mind. Cut a piece that is larger than the hole you are repairing. Make sure the area is clean, and tape both inside and out.
If the problem is a leaking seam, this can be fixed with a standard sealant. As in the example above, make sure the area is clean and dry before applying the sealer. Take the time, while you are at it, to check the rest of the seams to be sure there aren’t any other areas that need your attention.
If you make a habit of thoroughly examining your tent after each trip, and fixing any issues before packing it away, you will save yourself from being caught in an unexpected incident in the future. We hope you get years and years of wonderful camping time out of your tent and that the memories you make last a lifetime. We look forward to seeing you around the campground this summer.
