No need to ever apologize, any product suggested is well worth trying.
I think we have a failure in the plastic reinforcement for attaching our tent ends.
I will visit a marine store tomorrow as per your suggestion.

If you go to a marine store it may be worth looking at sail repair tape. I have used that for many tent and awning repairs with good success. It comes in various colors. If you use sail repair tape I recommend cutting the corners with a radius. Square corners peel up more over time. Stitch the repair tape down well using a spoon or other rounded tool to help adhesion. I use a small cutting board as a bearing surface to press against.

A local sail loft will also have sticky back. That is a fairly heavy self adhesive Dacron cloth which is used for wear patches on sails. It sticks very well and is durable. Typically it is only white color though. Most sail makers will sell small pieces at decent cash price to walk-ins

A marine store may have some vinyl, but a fabric store will likely have a better selection.

This is a local store in our area.

This is the exact problem I just noticed wiping down my vinyl beds..Do you have a U-Tube video on how to fix this? I've found information such as this is awesome and allows me to be brave and fix my own stuff..
Do you recommend replcing the cables, are they getting weak which is what is creating the extra pull. The materials do not appear rotted, just riping..

Hi. I was able to find Mr. Grip on Amazon. However, I am not sure where to find the "plumbers steel band"?
