One of our pull down silver blinds has ripped at the bottom. Looks like it has ripped at the stitching where it is fixed into the pull down bar.

I had some duct tape on it but that just curled at the edges and peeled off. Bought some Gorilla Tape this morning from Halfords to effect a repair. Blimey that stuff is sticky. Easy to tear but as you have gripped it with 2 hands you then have to peel it off your fingers - fair took it out of me that did.

Stuck the screen back into place and all seems well for the time being. I will report back to let you know how it has stuck.

Shame all they had was black stuff. I have just googled and there seems to be a clear version that would have been much less intrusive but needs must as it is a tensioned item I was worried it might tear further across

Anyone else used Gorilla Tape?

I never go anywhere without Tenacious Tape which is available from GO Outdoors.

Its a very strong clear tape that adheres to anything and is almost invisible when applied.

I wouldn't belong to any club that would have me as a member.
