Neck Gasket Repair Kit Video [How To]

Neck Gasket Repair Video

Here is a recently posted video demonstrating a neck gasket repair. Bernard Walsh uses an old deflated soccer ball to help stretch out the gasket which looks like a pretty good trick.

Good video but could probably be edited down a bit for time.

NSR Repair KitThe kind folks from North Sea Resins sent me a sample of their recently introduced emergency repair kit for both plastic and fibreglass canoe or kayaks.

It’s slightly different then the many other repair kits on the market in that the curing process is activated by blue spectrum light and cures in under 30 seconds.

When I unboxed the kit, I was presented with a Camelbak water bottle (as a watertight storage container) filled with fibreglass cloth, a plastic applicator tab, a black syringe filled with resin, two sheets of sandpaper and a blue LED light to activate and cure the resin.

Have you ever had a zipper that splits apart after zipping up? What about your tent zipper jamming in the middle of the night?

Often times, it is your zipper slider which is causing the problems as they get worn out quickly. Rather then replacing the entire zipper, replace the slider and see if it fixes the problem.
