Repairing Bomar Hatch Screens

Post by thinwater » Wed Oct 25, 2017 4:00 pm

I gather I'm not the only one with this problem. One of mine cracked several years ago, but I delayed posting the details until I was certain it was good fix. A little Sunbrella and some Locktite PL S40 (like Sika 295 but 1/3 the price) made for a flexible, perminant fix.
