The components used on Breathe Bell Tents have been selected for their durability and ease of maintenance. Small rips in the canvas can be stitched using a common needle and thread. Larger rips and tears will need to be patched. If applying a patch, use a diamond shape with the peak of the diamond at the top, allowing rain run off.
Any holes left by the needle will fill with the expanding fibres of the canvas when it becomes wet. Any damage to the groundsheet should be fixed with circular using a patch of the same (or similar) material and a good, strong contact adhesive and should be applied to both sides of the ground sheet.
