Thermarest permanent home repair kidSaw the video and read the instructions on the Universal repair kit (Thermarest permanent home repair kit). Mine came with one sterile alcohol prep pad, three round parches of different colors, a repair adhesive tube, a tear-aid patch type A and a small wooden flat stick. No glue dots. Question what are the tear-aid patch for? It suppose to be mention on the instruction of the video or the repair kit but it does not. Why the instructions do not mention anything about the repair adhesive and timings or the wooden spread help or the timing of the patch? The video says 3 hours, the instructions say 2. The voice on the video is distorted, hard to understand. Hope you improve, you have a great brand, pity that these small details are not accounted. If you have better written instructions please send back. Will proceed according to the video not the instructions.

Instructions don't match productThis should be a simple procedure, but the instructions left me guessing which components to use. The video conflicts with the written instructions and neither match the glue and patches included in the kit I received. I've patched many things, so I took a stab at it. We shall see if it sticks. Please have someone go through your kits and instructions and get it right--it's not uncommon to get a leak in a mattress, so it's important you provide a way to repair them.

save your money. instructions are incomplete.cleaned. applied glue. placed adhesive side towards glue (instructions didn't mention this). placed a big paint can on it overnight. next day 24 hrs later, glue wasn't dry. air forced the patch right off. it may work but instruction accurate. Will try again...

Save your MoneyI wish I could write a positive review on this however this product really disappointed me. I followed the instructions, and tried to repair the puncture in my therm-a-rest twice. The result was the same each time. Air was able to leak straight through the patch itself, I ran water over the mat to verify this was actually happening and I could see the air bubbles were coming through the patch itself.
Also there was no mention of the tear-aid patches provided in the instructions

Home repair kitThe instructions could be better but were adequate. I assume the tear-aid patch is for larger tears. The glue dots are not part of this home repair kit. It was easy to fix a small pin hole. I did not need to use the patches. Even if the glue dries out and I can not use the kit again it is better than buying a new mattress.
