Coconix Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit (duh!)

Rubbing alcohol or leather/vinyl cleaner

Cotton swab or cotton pad

Scissors or utility knife (if necessary)

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

Step 1

Preparing the Damaged Area

  • Carefully trim any excess threads, jagged bits, or burn marks from the worn-out spots on your leather office chair.
  • Cut off any charred material if necessary.

Step 2

Cleaning the Area

  • Clean the area around the tear on your leather couch 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

Mixing the Repair Compound

  • If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide in the kit to match the color and prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar provided.

Step 4

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the worn-out spots on your leather office 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

Drying and Additional Layers

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

Step 6

Adding Texture

  • Once the repair compound is semi-dry, 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. Adding texture will help the repaired section to blend with the rest of the leather.

Step 7

Finishing Touches

  • After the repair compound has dried, use a cotton pad or cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to buff out the edges of the repair on your leather office chair.

Step 8

Maintenance

  • Wipe your office chair down with a damp cloth or leather cleaner every few weeks to remove dust and dirt.
  • Avoid spilling liquids or exposing it to direct sunlight for long periods of time.
  • Use a leather conditioner to nourish the leather and restore its natural shine.
  • Rotate the chair cushions and use a different seating area on the chair to prevent uneven wear.
  • Regularly check the tightness of screws and bolts to ensure the chair remains stable and secure.
  • Be mindful of how you are using the chair and try to avoid leaning back too far or sitting on the arms of the chair to prevent further wear.
