REPAIR CAB COVER Continued
Check hardware: Replace parts that are broken, bent, corroded or missing.
REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT
Use lockstitching to install all patches, straps, and flaps and to repair open seams. Use smallest needle size you can to
make weatherproof seams. Use 5 to 7 stitches per 1 inch (2.5 cm). Backstitch all thread breaks at least 1 inch (2.5 cm).
Backstitch all ends at least 1 inch (2.5 cm), except where ends are turned under in a hem or seam or held down by other
stitching. Maintain thread tension so stitching is tight and lock is firmly fixed in center of material. Trim all ends. Take
care, when restitching, to make a new stitch line.
Adhesive is flammable and can injure you. Keep it away from heat, sparks, and open flame.
Avoid repeated or prolonged breathing of vapors. Avoid contact with your skin.
