Pin hole punctures - To repair pin hole punctures, locate the hole and work in a drop of adhesive. Allow the glue to cure for 30 mins before inflating.

1. Remove any moisture and dirt from around the puncture.

2. Rub around damaged area with sandpaper to roughen surface for good adhesion.

2. Sparingly apply adhesive to the surrounding area.

3. Trim patch to 3cm beyond damaged area and round off any corners.

4. Remove the paper backing from the patch and lightly coat with adhesive.

5. Leave the glue for approximately 3 minutes until tacky before centering the patch over the damaged area and pressing it gently into place, smoothing out any bubbles or wrinkles.

6. Allow the patch to cure for 30 mins before inflating again.
