Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to repair a hole in an Ortlieb waterproof Pannier bag for cycle tourists. These are great bags, great for cycle touring. It can happen, if you have an accident or fall off the bike and crash, then bags can get holes in them.
We can stick it over the hole and hope it does the job. The first important thing is to clean the area. The bag is really dirty, I've already tried to fix one hole with duct tape, which was surprisingly effective.
Now, take off the plastic from the Tear-Aid and place the Tear-Aid over the hole
You want to press down on it and apply as much pressure as you can. If you can, push from the bottom of the bag so you get pressure on both sides. Give it some time to dry. This is one method to repair the bag.
The other option, because one part is canvas, and the other part is more of a waterproof material, it is possible to sew
You can sew the canvas with a needle and thread, and that will help to keep it waterproof. This is how to repair a hole in an Ortlieb waterproof Pannier bag. If you have any questions or comments please leave them in the section below. Thank you for choosing VisiHow.
