Hi - our awning was a bit stretched and the window has torn away from the zip - is there is a product to glue it back or is it a stitch fix? Thanks

I had the same problem with our first awning, I bought some strong 'whipping silk' from a fishing tackle shop and sewed it myself, upon completion I used water repelent spray to seal the sewn area, lasted years. There are hower many companies that will repair awnings should you wish to do so.

Depends no how it has torn, if it has torn along the stiching line then it might have to have a strip sewn in to join them back up, if the stiching has come away then it probably just needs to be resewn.

Thanks - we ended being recommended to use a clear sticky tape from Go Outdoors and I have to say it was very very good - came in a little red packet.

Was it McNett Tenacious Tape?
