Where does one get these vinyl repair patches, as my Tiger needs a few repairs?

Since you can not heat weld a repair... no need to source our tramp material. Any strong material would work. An upholstery shop or sail loft would have patch materials and the ability to sew a patch to the bottom side of a trampoline.

Wait a minute...thought it was mentioned somewhere that heat welding was indeed possible for tramp repairs? Guess I was mistaken...

This does not work. Even with our industrial machines. The one that would do a "patch" is a sonic welder and any contaminants on the material causes a short and burn of the material.
