My trampoline (black mesh) has a small rip in it near a hiking strap, and I want to repair/reinforce it before it has a chance to grow larger this season.

Does anyone know where I could get a small (say, 5"x5" or so) scrap of the black mesh material? Would a dealer have some of this? Other ideas?

Thanks,
Steve

A dealer wouldn't have it in stock, but may be able to get a swatch for you.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!

I'll buy a yard or so of the fabric, and then I have plenty left over for other projects (say, adding more halyard/line pockets)

Fantastic, I've been looking for this mesh and then they charge 111$ to send 1 yard of 15$ material,to Europe :evil:

PS: Has anybody any experience how to melt/weld this mesh, like its done originally on the Hobies ?
