👤I'm not happy with this patch. It looked okay going on to a leather chair, but there were other better choices. I rounded it with scissors to prevent it from peeling off after a week. The patch was on the back of the chair, not in a place where it's being put under a lot of pressure. The only way to get a refund is to peel the patch off and send it back. It looks like I'm stuck with it because I didn't want to do that to the chair. It is ironic when you think about it.
👤The perfect match was surprising to me. I covered the tears with the tape and you couldn't tell where the tape started. The tape is still intact after two weeks of use. When I ordered more tape to finish the couch, Amazon told me it was no longer available. Most disappointing.
👤Wow! It worked well. I would like to give it more than 5 stars. The bible survived because it lost its spine and fell apart. Thank you for your product, we can use it again.
👤I ordered this to be used in a different way. I'm using it to make a mark on the back side of the bow. It's working well. The pads are under a lot of pressure. I left the pads too long to see how the glue would hold up. The glue on the back of my pads is almost permanent after a couple of days. There are many uses for this stuff. The next project will be leather padding at the bottom of a crochet hook display stand. I'm building for my wife.
👤I received it in a timely manner. It is large. The color matches well. I was able to cover the arms and seat of my chair. It was easy to work with. I applied it as instructed. It was easy to apply since I was covering large areas. The corners and edges are starting to unstick now that it's been on for a few weeks. It has popped up and is moving. I'm not sure what I'll do about it, the rest is stuck to the leather. If I try to peel it off it will rip the leather. I'm very happy with the color match and ease of application. I don't think the product's glue is durablity around the edges.
👤I think the product works well for its intended purpose, it is affordable and easy to apply. If you are patching a "real" leather, it will look more like a "Leather Looking vinyl" patch, so it won't blend nicely with your leather sofa/seat, unless of course you are patching a " cheap" leather. It's not a fault of the manufacturer or the product itself, it's a judgement call. I can't judge the material's longevity as it's only been a week or so since I applied it. I'm not surprised if it starts to show a thread around the corner.
👤It looked like it would match the shade of brown, even though I had a feeling it wouldn't match my furniture. The cracks were covered and smooth to the touch after it blended in. The only thing that bugged me was the way it was packaged. I couldn't get them out completely because the piece was folded tightly. I applied faux leather to a piece of furniture that had a small defect.

👤There is no video for how to do it, but you can use a barcode to get to the video, but the website says that the link has been used too much, so you can't open the video. I wanted to return the item, but there is a policy that says you can return the item even if the product says no heat is needed. Anyway, crap!
👤It is easy to use and may take a practice to get used to. If you know how to mix colors, you can look at it for the best match. Try to make the application as smooth as possible and use the texture stamp before it dries. Some reviews show that they didn't read the directions. The texture paper should not be left on the product while it is drying. It is recommended that you use the texture paper with the product or it will stick and pull it off. It is not perfect but it is great for small repairs.
👤I applied this product to my booth to make it look better but after a while it cracked and looked worse than before I applied it. I got rid of my kitchen utensil and bought a new one.
👤This is the first time I need such an item and I can't compare it to any other product. It is worth it for the price. Here are some pictures to help you make a decision. The ottoman's color is the same as in the next two pictures as the patch in the first picture does not look like it. The first one was taken with a flash.
👤The monthly limit for instructional scans has been exceeded. This is what I get when I try to use the code to teach me how to use it. It doesn't look like it has any glue. Poor instructions and no video made me not know that. Can't return it because of shipping regulations. Time and money are wasted.
👤It would be cool for small holes. The hole in our chair was too big to patch. The patch is mostly holding, but the top layer is peeling and the hole is getting bigger. If you can't use the patterned squares, the surface will be rough on the skin.
👤I bought this to hide a small split in the fold line in the arm of my leather loveseat, which was the first indication of its 8-year service. The spot of white backing was visible to me. The kit was received, followed instructions, cleaned, and mixed color, but not much help. It was too large. The Lego set has a spear. Later, used a small paintbrush. I lost patience as the cover-up was not as smooth as I would have liked. It is not noticeable to anyone but me. The mission was accomplished. There were tiny holes in the back of the seat. I mixed the color better and used my finger to apply it to the smoothed surface. The water was cleaned up. When wet, dried is only minimally darker. The second attempt was to address all the tiny holes. It's not much for leather. Hope this repair keeps that pretty loveseat looking good. I did color the stuffing so the slit doesn't stand out at first glance, but I couldn't use this stuff for a slit in an old desk chair. My family and friends don't look for flaws in my furniture because they only glance at it.

👤I wanted to cover the leather couch that was peeling. The patches worked well for a while but once we started sitting on the couch more frequently they started to lift on the ends. I wish they had more colors. It worked well on the arm rest, and I am giving it 4 stars. The patches work well if it is for something that won't have a lot of contact.
👤It does stick, it does work, but color was a bit off, I use a cover so that helps it, but if it matched a lot better, it would've been better.
👤The first set we received had some defects. The paper was wrinkled as well as the fold it in. I called Amazon and they sent me a new set. All of them were usable.
👤After just one week, the paper sheet didn't stay on and it was difficult to clean and remove the sticky sheet.
👤Looks great. I have had it on my couch for a few weeks and it is not pulling. It was very easy to apply.
👤I have had them for almost a month and so far they are great. Is it really possible to rank durability yet?

👤I put my motorcycle seat on and added Gorilla Glue gel. Gorilla Glue gel has some give.
👤I feel like it has held up well after 6 months. It doesn't look as good as it did at first, but I don't think you can go into it expecting permanent results. The area I had to fix was large enough that I had to put together 3 pieces of leather tape side by side. Most of the issues I have are where two pieces are butted against each other, but are starting to come up. If you only need 1 piece of tape to fix a small area, you will have better results. I would still recommend it all. I used this to fix an area on my leather sofa. It was very easy to apply, and it looks great. I rolled the warm water back and forth on the pieces after applying it and it seemed to help. I just applied it today, so it's still not certain if it will hold up, but I would definitely recommend it and buy again if needed.
👤The leather strip on my chair was torn by my lab. I ordered this after doing various things to fix it. It is the exact match for my leather.
👤If you're looking for superior quality, look no further. It is strong and thick. If you mess up, you can separate the parts without damaging them. I ordered another roll.
👤I like the way you can cut it to fit. It took some time because this stuff comes in a roll and it wants to roll back up when you want it to stick to the couch. I applied a layer of liquid nails to make sure the tape wouldn't move when someone sits on it. I would like to see an option between dark brown and black. I got some colorful pillows to distract from the patches on the couch, so I think it's fine. It's a good thing.
👤It's hard to tell the difference between the shades of brown. I took screen shots and labeled them for anyone who was trying to choose the lightest brown. I didn't do this before I bought the dark brown 3 and it is a bit lighter than my couch. The new dark brown seems to have a burgundy color, as does the dark brown 2. I have uploaded the picture. The tape hid cat damage on the couch. You can see the damage to the couch, but you can't see the tape covering the other side. It is lighter because of my mistake in color choice. I will order the darker shade to cover the other side.
👤I have a leather couch that is in good shape, but I had a few tears on it. I was not sure if it would work. I was wrong. It was easy to apply and I have not had any issues with it. It has been great for the last few months, with no pulling up at the corners. The arm of the chair is on for one year. Both areas were easy to put on. You only notice it when it is close to you. I would have liked to have bought it sooner. I bought two rolls for future use.

👤The product was nice, but the color wasn't what it looked like in the pictures. The dark brown was lighter than expected. I'm going to order coffee in hopes that it will give me a dark brown color.

👤The product is advertised to be almost 6 inches wide. It's not even 5 inches wide. I ordered a replacement hoping that one of the batches was cut wrong, but the other was the same width. The label on the tape says something. 6x39 I bet it won't be 39in long if I unwrap it because it's not 6in wide.
👤This worked out as I wanted it to. I didn't want the hole to get bigger and I didn't want to spend a ton on a repair for the project car. I got the grey tape roll because I wanted to cut a pattern of the entire panel instead of just the hole. If you have a pair of sharp kitchen or craft scissors, the tape is very easy to cut. The color is very similar. I have a hunch that the baking Texas heat will create a permanent bond, or that it will fail because of the glue. I have no problem reapplying every year if necessary for the price and quality.
👤The glue on the patch delaminated within a few days. I need to buy a leather repair kit. I think removing the patch will cause more damage to the chair. It's easy to see why this didn't hold when you look at the portion where the glue peeled away. The patches are made from vinyl and have a soft fuzzy material under them. The fuzzy material doesn't seem to be good for holding glue. This seems like a poor construction choice because it is a synthetic product.
👤It works well, but not as well as our couch color, but it is great to protect dog nails. It can't be taken off once placed, so be sure to get the placement right the first time.
👤This is very high quality. We used the chewed corner of the couch as a patch. The way we put the patch makes it blend into the couch, but you can see it in the picture. Very happy.
👤I needed a repair on my truck seat. I did it myself for a fraction of the cost, but I was quoted $195.00. It works well.
👤It looks like a patch that is hard to match colors. It will make a huge hole in whatever you use it on if you try to put it on and then take it off.
👤It's great for tears in leather car seats. My car is on the older side, so that is what I am looking at. A pair kit is a better option if you have a brand new car. It was perfect for my older jalopy.
👤Je commande ce produit, supposer tre 6'' de large. Lors de la premire commande j'ai recu 2x 3'' de large. DonC J'ai. MAIS J'ai's commander is 6'' de large. 3'' is the endcore. TRS DU. Je leurs avons un garde car. The changement de description is an ENVISAGER.

👤I should have returned these. They look nice and are easy to use. The problem is that the glue is bad. They were used on my bag. They lifted 3 days after applying. If you want them to stay, it's a good idea to use some type of glue.
👤I had to cover a large rip on the seat of a new leather chair, it was ripped while unpackaging in the store. The customer service manager gave it to me for free. The product was perfect for the job. We will see how long it will last.
👤I would have ordered one if I wanted a 7 1/2 x 11 1/2 piece. I don't like cheapskate behavior. The manufacturer will give him a free piece if he cuts 50 pieces short.

👤Our cat destroyed the two exposed corners on our lounge. It was very noticeable and terrible to look at. I wanted to save the couch before buying something new. They worked well. You don't notice that the colors are slightly off, but it looks better than it did when it was torn up. So relieved. Saved a lot of money. It was sticky to the couch. I wanted to have enough fabric on either side for a good stick. It was perfect.
👤The sticky part of my sofa was destroyed by my cat, but he now uses it as a scratch post. I have not needed the backup fabric glue.
👤I accidentally burned my coat on the space heater. I have been wearing the coat for 10 years, and I was not going to give it up. I found a patch that I attached to my coat with a self-adhesive patch. The leftover patch was used to cover up a logo. If you're looking for a low-cost way to fix an item, it worked great because the texture isn't a perfect match.
👤I had to apply fabric glue because the patch did not last as long without the sticky side.
👤I applied these to the recliners that had a weak seam area. It was very easy to apply. I will adjust this review if it doesn't hold up. I am happy so far.
👤The chair was nearly exact Sized, cut, peeled, and placed. So happy! The chair was ruined by cats. One of the sets. They have left the other alone. The life of this set can be extended. Didn't want to get new chairs.
👤If you want to patch up the furniture area, you need to match the pattern and color with the affected area. It's helpful that there are many patterns and colors to choose from. The box has directions on it.

👤I really like it, I tried it today. Looks great. It is missing the texture of my couch, so it looks like nothing, but up close. My couch is a dark brown/black color. It looks good. I'm very happy.
👤The tape was a little thick to cut, but once I got out my scissors, it looked great. The ripped leather cushion on my chair was almost new. After I sat in it again, the tape slid all around and wouldn't stay over the rip. I tried to hold it in place with other pieces of tape. I was prepared to make a brand new seat cushion out of this tape, if necessary. I couldn't use this tape for its intended purpose. If the hole had been on the back of the chair, it would have worked out better. The tape slid around when I shifted my body in the chair, and that's not good. It produced black bits of sticky tape-gum that had rolled up into balls. It made a mess because it didn't work well. I bought a whole-chair slip-on cover to solve the problem. I needed a solution that worked while I was sitting, and that solution was better than the tape. This tape was not it. Despite how good it looks, I can't recommend this tape.
👤I have an office chair that was in good shape but had developed a rip about 10 inches long across the width of the seat. I was not sure if the tape would detract from the look of the chair or if it would hold for more than a day or two. I was wrong. The tape has held up well for three weeks of daily use. It blends in well, but it's harder to notice when not under direct light. The application is very easy, just like using any other kind of tape. If you're thinking of throwing out a chair because of a rip, it's worth giving this product a try as you might be pleasantly surprised.
👤I used this tape to repair a fake leather chair. I'm not very clever and there were unavoidable edges that could cause the tape to come up, possibly sticking to me at the edges. I've sat on it for a few weeks and so far it's not an issue. Even though I didn't do the best job and the areas of repair were large, the chair looked better and made my office look better.
👤I used this for the black leather seats in my car. There were cracks on the driver's side. I only wish I had more tape because it was wider than 4 inches. I tried to order 3 more but the app wouldn't let me because the seller only allows one roll per customer. I was able to purchase 4 more rolls from another Amazon seller who had 6 inch by 120 inch rolls. This type of tape has good Adhesion on flatter areas but can be difficult around corners. It is easy to use, but scissors work better than an exacto knife. The thickness is thin enough to blend in without being noticeable, but it is enough to provide some coverage over torn areas. If you trim in a way that the edges meet up with the seams, it is less noticeable. The edges that are exposed are not bad since the material is so thin, and they could be easily hidden with a leather or vinyl repair kit that has a liquid or paste to blend the edges with the older material. I plan to get matching plush car seat covers because I wanted it covered to prevent the tears from worsening. I wasn't worried about it being perfect. Good luck with your projects and repairs!

👤I had a lot of wear marks and this worked well.
👤The money is wroth. It does a good job.
👤I followed the directions, but it wouldn't stick.
👤The color matched up perfectly but it didn't stick, so I'm going to use 2 sided tape to hold it down.

👤I tried 2 cheaper options before I used this patch. This one stays in place and has a decent appearance to it, as opposed to the others I tried that looked cheap and the glue didn't hold after a while. I used this to patch a rip in an old car's leather interior, and it did the job perfectly. Save yourself some time and spend more money on this one.
👤I was surprised by how well this worked. It was the same color as our chair and went on well. This purchase is for a single sheet of leather repair. We were able to use most of it, but if you are repairing a lot of wear on a chair, you may want to buy two.
👤Great product. It was very sticky. I have had no issues with my motorcycle seat for over a month. The seat is weathered and there is a color difference. Can't help it. Very happy.
👤It works really well, used on driver seat, covered hole, and worn out area. Also bought one for a mom's car seat.
👤The blue was not navy blue, it was black. It wasn't as soft as was described. When I tried to return it, my printer wouldn't print the return label, so I had to pay $3 for it to be printed for me. I feel like I have a raw deal on this one. Very disappointed. Would not recommend.
👤It is very durable. Also very thick. Since it is only at home in a chair, it is not a big deal about how it looks.
👤Very pleased with the product. I used it to cover a rip on the console in my car, and a tear on the inside of an arm on a recliner chair. Both are holding up well.
👤My dogs use the sofa as a bed. It was a great sofa, but it was damaged by sharp nails. This blends in better than any other product we tried.
