Pros: Plenty of Glue. The amount of glue, if bought alone, could cost more than the whole kit. The 2" patches are strong, thick and large enough to cover most punctures and seam splits and tears.Cons: 4 patches is not enough for the amount of glue. But you might have a old vinyl shower curtain or umbrella to make all the patches you need. The instructions are lacking details.===== Tips From Me Owning And Patching 10 Aerobeds ======Finding Leak: Aerobeds tend to fail at the seams and horizontal channels on the top. Otherwise you are looking for an accidental puncture. Most leaks can be found by holding your ear near the full bed and listening in quiet environment. If it is a slow leak, you may need a sponge soaked in soapy water; starting with bottom of bed wet the bed with the sponge and look for bubbles forming where the leak is. If needed, next check the sides then top of bed.Clean: Clean and Dry an area the size of patch around the hole to remove dirt and oils. Use a folded 2 inch square of medium sandpaper to rough area. If you are working on a seam or channel, be careful not to over sand the raised area and create a larger hole! If your bed has the felt top surface, sand felt coating off.Applying Glue: Cover half inch area around the hole itself with thin layer of glue and rub glue in with top of glue tube; this is to ensure the glue is in any seams near hole. Apply a thick layer of glue to patch (textured side) so that when patch is place on hole and lightly pressed with your fingers glue will bead out around the entire patch. Over gluing is better than not using enough.Set the Patch: Get the area with the hole on a surface and portion of bed as flat as possible. Using a 6 inch square of wax paper, cover the patch with the wax paper and place a 10 lb flat plate iron weight, or other flat heavy object, over the patch. Don't worry about the extra glue! The glue will not stick a bit to the wax paper and when you are done it will look pro. More weight seems to help if there are seams under the patch. This also ensures the entire patch sets into the groves and channels. I use 4 ten pound plates stacked. To improvise, you can use any flat surfaced object like junk CDRoms (with the open hole off the patch) and any heavy objects like 5 gallon jugs of bottled water...Dry Patch: I prefer to wait 24 hours, but have successfully inflated a bed that was needed from a morning patching 10 hours later with a perfect result and no leaks later. Once dry, the patch will be strong and will not stick to the wax paper. In case you have a large tear I used 2 slightly overlapping 2 inch round patches from this kit to cover the 1.5 inch split in a channel. But be careful, it glued the top layer of the bed to the bottom because of glue leaking into the large tear and drying them together under the 40 lbs of weight! I noticed when inflating bed a giant dimple at the point of repair. I just kept inflating and the to halves separated with a pop under the pressure of the air pump... and the patch worked!Good luck.

I bought this product to fix an air mattress. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but it still leaks a little bit.

Worked just like it said. Followed the instructions and did not need to buy a new mattress. Best glue around.

Easy, no fuss. Came quick. Definitely use a weight on the patch like suggested. Two adults slept on air matress with no leaks/problems.

I had high hopes for this product but barely work for me. I used it several times and I still had a leak in my air bed. I would suggest finding another product.

This works. The first time I tried to seal a hole it didn't stick but I tried again and used a clamp overnight and it worked! I saved two queen airbeds that were ready to be thrown out with the Kwik Tek Vinyl Repair Kit. I wish it came with more patches though.
