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 puncture on your leather bar stool.
  • Cut off any charred material if necessary.

Step 2

Cleaning the Area

  • Clean the area around the puncture on your leather bar stool 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

Preparing the Backing Fabric (if needed)

  • For punctures larger than 1/4 of an inch, cut a piece of backing fabric with rounded edges, slightly larger than the tear.
  • Insert it with the spatula provided in the kit.

Step 4

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 5

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the puncture on your leather bar stool.
  • 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 6

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 bar stool.
  • Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the area.

Step 7

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 8

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 bar stool.

Step 9

  • To ensure the longevity of your repair, it's important to properly maintain your leather bar stool.
  • This includes regularly cleaning the surface with a mild cleaner specifically designed for leather, and avoiding placing the stool in direct sunlight or near heat sources, as this can cause the material to dry out and crack.
  • Additionally, avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning products, as these can damage the repair and the surrounding material.
  • With regular care and maintenance, your leather bar stool should continue to look like new for years to come.
