Thread: How do you repair mesh screen on a tent?

    Question How do you repair mesh screen on a tent?

    How do you patch a rip in the mesh/screen portion of your tent? I have a big tear in the mesh on my tent entrance, as shown on the attached photo below.

    The tent is a Marmot Swallow, if that makes any difference.

    Thanks in advance,
    Peter

    Short of replacing the hole piece I only have one idea. Other will probably have a much better solution.

    I would try my local fabric store for two of those clear iron-on patches. Try and adhere them to each other, covering the hole.

    Howdy,

    If its nylon Walmart has a couple of repair kits.

    Check here first: http://www.campingsurvival.com/screenrepair when you get there type in screen repair and a couple more kinds of repair kits come up. These are what I have tried and they work!

    And I'm your uncle Zed!
