Repairing an Air Mattress

Does anyone know how to patch a full size inflatable bed mattress successfully? Duct tape has slowed the leak, but the mattress has a flocked or velvet vinyl top, and air is seeping from under the layers of duct tape.

Kiddy Pool Patch Kit

I used a patch for the kiddy blow up pools on a water bed & it is still holding a year later. Should work on air also.

Seal All

there is a product called "seal all" and it works good, even on waterbed mattresses. last time I got it it was in a red/yellow tube. (05/25/2006)

Krazy Glue

Just try drops of Krazy Glue or whatever it's called. That contact cement. I've used it to patch a water bed in the past, so if it works for water it should work for air. Just do a drop, let it dry and do another one. That should fix it. (05/25/2006)

Duct Tape

I wonder if you can work a piece of duck tape through the split to the inside of the mattress and flatten it down, then stick another piece on the outside. It may last a bit longer that way. (05/26/2006)
