Crown Insert Repair Molding Strips with Stiffener



U.S. Pat. Pending. No. 29/753,283,  63/085,318


The crown repair strips are designed for repairing and protecting the crowns of straw hats. The strips are 100% acid-free canvas and easy to apply, just dip the strip in water and mold it to the shape of your crown. Once the strip dries, it will harden and create a permanent patch, hiding and preventing any further tear.

For large tears between 1"-2", use the D-strip. The d-strip is slightly harder to apply. For most small tears and general protection, the V-strip is sufficient and easier to use.

3 Strips included per unit.

Instructions For Use:

  1. Locate the tear and clean off any dust from the area.

  2. Dip the strip in water for 6-9 seconds. Make sure it is fully submerged.

  3. Place the wet strip with the yellow glue side down on the inside of the cracked crown.

  4. With your fingers, mold the strip to the inside of the crown. Make sure all air pockets are removed. Pay extra attention to the area near the tear, check that the strip is glued to both sides of the tear.

  5. Turn your hat upside down and leave it to dry overnight.

  6. Once the strip has dried, the strip should be hard and the tear should be less noticeable.
