In order for your patches to work you need to prep the surface properly, If you are a little older you remember the guy at the tire store fixing your tube in your tire.You must first rough up the surface to clean and open up something for the glue to hang onto.Apply a light coat of glue to both patch and pool allow to get tacky about 20 seconds apply on a firm surface for 3-5 minutes your patch will stay. Like most jobs preperation is key. Kenny Kummer brody chemical Walgreens sells an effective vinyl repair product called POWER POXY. Provides a strong permanent repair when used as directed.
