Editor's Notes

June 27, 2019:

When it comes to leather repair kits, you have three basic options: patches, sewing, or restorative paint/glue mixtures. We've kept selections for all three of these kinds, since the size and type of damage to your leather goods will vary. That said, many people prefer to skip the MastaPlasta First-Aid patches, since they can peel away over time. You may want to reserve these for items or areas of items that don't see a lot of wear and rubbing. As to glue and paint kits, the Leather Furniture Max Mega remains the one to beat. It has directions that even the inexperienced can follow, comes in a wide range of color choices, and is totally non-toxic for your safety. Because it has a high-quality top coat sealant, it lasts longer than some others, too. Finally, for those who need to sew ripped seams, we kept the Finyl Fix, but also added the Simpzia 18-Piece. It has more needles as well as various colors of thread, so you can fix just about any leather or vinyl piece you have. Finally, we removed Visbella Professional due to some ongoing issues with the longevity of the product. If you need a budget-friendly alternative to our top choice, you might consider the Strongman Tools option, instead.
