Tread Lite Gear fully bonded Dyneema Composite Fabric (Cuben Fiber) stick on accessory patches SOLD IN PAIRS, 1 item is 2 patches
These patches offer the highest bonded strength on the market when adhered to dyneema composite fabric shelters / tarps. The are made from 1.43oz DCF and bonded with 3M 9845 tape. The tape is full width and not made up of individual strips. Components are hand cut with precision, cleaned with alcohol and then primed before being bonded. All this is done in gloved hands to ensure no skin oils affect the process and the highest possible bond strength is achieved. No sewing is involved. The magic happens internally where 4 separate bonds give unrivalled strength. Once you peel the backing off you have just one sheet of adhesive so there are no weak spots like tape strip joints or thread. 8.6cm diameter and 3g each
Dyhooks - Gated swivel hook - Ideal for creating mounting points for your bivy face net, lanterns and any other hanging storage requirements
Dylocs - line loc 3 adjustable cord locks - ideal for creating auxiliary guying points for areas that sag and induce wind flap on shelters. Please note that even cuben tape has its limitations. It forms a structural bond but forces should always be applied in a shear direction rather than peel. Simply put you should angle the line downwards so the force is not pulling directly out from the middle perpendicular to the ground. In practice on a mid shelter this happens as standard given the sloping sides. Main pegging points should always be taking the brunt of the load. Work best with 3mm cord but will work with 2mm braid and a hitch for slip security in wet and windy weather
Before fitting please clean the application area thoroughly (ideally with alcohol). Peel the backing from the top and smooth the patch downwards as you go. Any residual adhesive tack can be smoothed off with your fingers.
