Plastic Repair

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
 I have a small 0,5inch long tear/ripp in the upper plastic part of my Lange shoes Its the feet part not the enkel part and its not close to the bindings. Is there a way to repair this and prevent further tearing?

Thanks in advance, Ivo

drill a small hole 2-3mm at the end of the split, this should stop it progressing any further.

if you are skiing hard or racing you can have a small metal plate riveted across the slit as well, this takes the strain off the plastic and prevents any further splitting

 You can also repair by heating a small nail and melting a small hole at the end of the tear.
