Coconix Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit

Rubbing alcohol or leather/vinyl cleaner

Cotton swab or cotton pad

Plastic wrap (optional, for adding texture to the repair)

Step 1

Prepare the Damaged Area

  • Carefully trim any excess threads, jagged bits, or burn marks from the chewed areas of your chair.
  • If necessary, cut off any charred material.

Step 2

Clean the Area

  • Clean the area around the chew marks on your chair with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.
  • Make sure to test it on a hidden area first. If alcohol is harsh for your material, you may use warm, soapy water or your usual leather or vinyl cleaner.

Step 3

Match the Color

  • If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Coconix Color Mixing Guide to match the color of your chair.
  • Prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar included in the kit.

Step 4

Apply the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the chewed areas of your chair.
  • Start by applying it under and along the edges and work from the outside toward the center.
  • Use the spatula for larger applications and the brush for surface applications and detail touch-ups.

Step 5

Allow to Dry

  • Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch.
  • Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the chair.

Step 6

Add Texture (Optional)

  • To add texture to your repair finish, tear off a slightly larger piece of plastic wrap.
  • Press it against the semi-dry final layer of the repair compound.
  • When you lift your hand off, the area will be slightly textured. Repeat this process until you've achieved the desired texture.

Step 7

Finishing Touch

  • Once the repair compound has dried, use a cotton swab or cotton pad and rubbing alcohol to buff out the edges on your chair.
  • This will help to smooth out any rough edges and make the repair look as seamless as possible.

Step 8

  • Wipe your chair down with a damp cloth or vinyl cleaner every few weeks to remove dust and dirt.
  • Avoid spilling liquids or exposing it to direct sunlight for long periods of time.
  • Use chew deterrents, such as bitter sprays or chew toys, to discourage your dog from chewing on your chair again.
  • Regularly check for any signs of wear and tear and repair them as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
  • Keep an eye on your dog while they are around the chair and redirect their chewing behavior to appropriate chew toys.

And that's it! With the Coconix Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit, you can easily fix any chew marks on your vinyl chair and keep your furniture looking like new. So don't let your pup's love for chewing ruin your furniture. Grab your kit and get to work! Happy furniture fixing!
