Customer Reviews
3M™ Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I had a horseshoe shaped tear about the size of a nickel in the vinyl seat of my Harley. $500 to replace it so I bought this kit. I have read a lot of negative reviews. To that I would say READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY & USE SOME COMMON SENSE. The seat padding it adhered to the seat vinyl so I could not use the backing fabric. I used the adhesive and very carefully with a toothpick glued the horseshoe shade flap to the padding then waited 24 hours. I then used a toothpick to VERY CAREFULLY fill the cut line and a few holes/gaps. I made sure not to get any glue anywhere except the tear. I then waited another 24 hours. Color fill; As the instructions state I was VERY CAREFUL to fill only the torn area and not over fill it. I again used a toothpick for this. As is said in the instructions I heated the texture paper with the tool. I reheated the tool & texture paper 6 times. I then LET IT COOL DOWN COMPLETELY. I wish I would have taken before & after pictures. If you look VERY CLOSELY & CAREFULLY you can still see a very slight trace of where the tear used to be. I am amazed at how well this product worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just need to apply heat The product works as advertised. Lots of negative reviews but before you turn away realize that the paint will not dry without heat. Instead of an iron I used a heat gun to heat the “iron” provided. Works so much better. Just apply the iron and heat it up constantly and iron out the patch. It will work if you realize the paint will not dry if you don’t have enough heat. First time using this and happy to stop the cracking in my seats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have used this on several items and have had no problems with it . The repaired areas have all become almost invisible. Not sure why some are saying this has no documentation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Days later not dry I followed the instructions, finally tossed the stupid tool aside and put the iron directly on the patch (on the second day). It’s been three days now and still not dry. pathetic! Minus 5 star rating!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot believe that 3m is selling this product! I just spent 15.00 and four hours try to get this stuff to dry. I am not an idiot but this makes you doubt your sanity! Instructions Were followed to a t over and over again and still not cured. Never again 3m !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Negative reviews True I bought this recently to fix a solid vinyl case that has some grove type cuts. The product went on fine but the disk on a stick heater was pretty much worthless for setting the product. It has been hours and it is still not set. I rant the disk several times for about a minute each time. Mostly the mastic sticks to the piece of paper and then exposes the part you are trying to patch. Wish I had saved the receipt to retun this product. This product does not merit a 3M label.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No instructions, no matching guide, no support Haven't tried to use it because the kit came with no instructions and no color matching guide, despite indicating that these are included on the outer packaging. Coming to the 3M website, discover that these materials also are not provided online. I was going to guess how to use it, but after reading the other reviews here I might just toss it out, $10 poorer but wiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly for me I had a round hole in my vinyl motorcycle seat that was a little smaller than a dime. A replacement seat would have cost about $350, so even after reading the negative reviews on this site, I decided to try this repair kit. I didn't have a lot of confidence it would turn out very well, but I figured I didn't have much to lose. I followed the instructions exactly. The only problem I had was that both containers of the "vinyl adhesive" in my kit were no longer liquid. One of them was completely dry and looked like a little rubber cylinder when it came out of the container. The other one was partially solid and partially still a little bit liquid, so I mixed the still-liquid part as well as I could and used it. I was shocked at how well the repair turned out! One of the three "grain papers" matched my seat's grain exactly, and the repair ended up being completely invisible. It's been a couple months since I made the repair and you still can't tell the seat was repaired at all. The repair is holding up very well so far.
