  • Fixing rips in silosocks

    How is everyone fixing rip in back bone area of silosocks . We duct tape the under parts with duct tape but wonder if white duct on top will be to shining

    I don't that it really matters but I always turned mine inside out and taped them on the inside. Like you, white duct tape. But I'm quick to throw away anything seriously ripped up.

      White cloth hockey tape. Strong and durable Sticks well to tyvek. No shine whatsoever. Generally comes in two widths , 1/2" and 1 1/2". I like the wider tape for patching. The black is good for making wing patches on un painted econo socks. Black hockey tape is also good to freshen up and blacken up shiny Canada necks (instead of reflocking).

          Another vote for white hockey tape. I've used rolls and rolls of it, enough to have found some that is better than others. My favorite..

            That is the brand I use as well! Renfrew Hockey tape comes in multiple colors including camo. It has a lot of uses for outdoorsy projects.

                  I have used clear Gorilla tape placed inside the sock. I like the idea of white hockey tape as well.

                      Good stuff. I have some that's been holding for years. For best results I try to get the wrinkles all worked out in the sock on a flat surface and really knead the tape for a bit onto the material. But I've also made some quick field fixes with the decoy in the ground using my leg behind the material to press the tape on.
