    DCF repair tape on inside or out?

    My tarp has a pin hole that needs to be taped over. Should I put repair tape on the inside, outside or both sides? Also, I'm guessing for a pinhole, a 1" square of repair tape would be adequate? Thanks for the help!

    If it were me I would do both sides but make the tape round circles. That way the edges should not fray like a square corner would.

    Thanks. That's what I was leaning towards.

    Hammock Gear sells it, among other places.

    You probably only need to do the outside, but it never hurts to be safe. Circular patches would be the best, as others have said Let us know if you run into any other issues!

    I've fixed some tiny ember holes with a single piece stuck on the outside.
    I cut 1" squares and then cut the corners off to make some octagons.
    It has held up perfectly for a few years now.

    If you do it on both sides do not make them the same size. Make sure one overlaps the other one.
