REPAIR TENT (M577A3 ONLY) Continued
Lift patch. Apply adhesive to area of tent inside adhesive circle.
Allow adhesive to dry until tacky.
Press cement surfaces together firmly with roller while tacky.
Seal by wiping edge of patch with soft bristle brush.
The watershed patch has the top edge angled to give a roof effect. Because the roof-type top
edge sheds water, the patch lasts longer than a rectangular patch. For watershed patch repair,
do Steps 10 - 14.
10. Cut patch large enough to overlap 2 inches (5 cm) on all sides of area to be repaired. Allow for 3/4 inch (19 mm)
turn-under of edge.
11. Fold patch in half lengthwise. Cut from open edges to folded edge at 22-1/2 degree angle.
