Your Landmark Creations inflatable is built tough to resist tons of wear and withstand most winds and weathers. But occasionally it may develop a minor tear. What do you do if the tear appears while your inflatable is in use at your promotional event? If the tear is relatively small, you can repair it yourself onsite. Here’s how.
The repair kit that came with your inflatable provides scissors, needle, and sturdy thread. Just pinch the torn edges together and sew them closed by hand. For best results, use small, even stitches.
Your repair kit also includes Tear-Aid®, special transparent adhesive with peel-off backing.

Whether you sew the tear or patch it, the quick repair should last throughout the remainder of your event. But what if the patch doesn’t hold? Or what if it doesn’t look presentable? In that case, you may need to send it to Landmark Creations for expert professional repair.
