How to Use XFasten Leather Tape

leather tape


  1. Clean the Surface: Use a mild leather cleaner to remove any dirt, dust, or oils on the surface that you plan to work on.
  2. Measure and Cut: Measure the length of the leather tape needed for your project. Use scissors to cut the tape to the desired length – cut slightly more than you think.
  3. Peel off the Backing: The XFasten Leather Tape comes with a protective backing, so make sure to peel off the backing before positioning it to expose the adhesive side of the tape.
  4. Position the Tape: Carefully position the adhesive side of the leather tape onto the leather item. Make sure it is aligned correctly and covers the area you want to repair or decorate.
  5. Smooth out bubbles (if needed): Use your fingers or a flat tool to smooth out any air bubbles trapped under the tape. This will help ensure a secure and even application.
  6. Press Firmly: Press the tape firmly onto the leather surface to ensure proper adhesion and pay special attention to the edges to prevent peeling.
  7. Trim Excess Tape (if necessary): If you have any excess tape hanging over the edges, use scissors to trim it neatly for a clean finish.
  8. Allow for Bonding Time: Give the adhesive some time to bond with the leather before using the item.
  9. Test the Repair: Once the tape has had time to bond, gently test the repaired or decorated area to ensure that the tape is securely in place.
