Hole in Your Pocket? Duct Tape It!
Find that your valuables are disappearing from your pockets?
Darn, there's a hole in my pocket! And I don't have time to fix it 'properly!'
No worries! DUCT TAPE It!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
All you need is:
The 'offending' garment with the hole in the pocket,
Some scissors (If your not the duct tape hand-tearing kind),
and DUCT TAPE!
Step 2: Locate the Hole
There's that pesky void that swallows all that I want and hold dear!
Step 3: Cut Off About 2 Inches of DUCT TAPE!
Most holes can be repaired with about 2 inches of DUCT TAPE (or more if needed!).
Step 4: Position the DUCT TAPE Under the Pocket
Working on a flat surface, smooth out the pocket and place the DUCT TAPE under the pocket as shown.
Make sure to leave about a 1/4 inch along the straight side of the pocket as shown so the DUCT TAPE can stick to itself.
Step 5: Fold the DUCT TAPE Over
Carefully fold the DUCT TAPE over and align the edges of the DUCT TAPE.
Step 6: Firmly Press the DUCT TAPE in Place
Take your time and press that DUCT TAPE in place. Really smash it down and work it into the cloth.
THAT'S IT - NO MORE HOLE!!!
Step 7: Here Is an Actual Repair That Has Lasted Years....
People might think that this is a temporary repair.
But here is a photo of a actual DUCT TAPE repair that has lasted years.
There now - Now go and fix the World!
