Air mattress patchSomeone asked about patching an air mattress and forum staffer Karl Kolbus responded with this tip.
Get yourself a small bottle of contact cement with an applicator brush in the cap. Swab around the hole to seal the material fibers, then patch as usual. You could even make your own patch from a piece of denim or other heavy cloth by brushing several coats of the cement on one side only. Don't saturate it so it comes out the bottom surface, and allow sufficient time to dry before applying the patch - it should be dry to the touch.
