Way too sticky -- pulls seams apart
on August 20, 2014
I followed the instructions exactly and even gave it an extra day to cure. It felt tacky but not sticky, but when I folded the tent and fly up, the Seam Grip stuck to itself very strongly. When I opened up the tent and fly to set them up, the seams had stuck together. I pulled them apart as gently as I could, but the Seam Grip stretched the seams apart and ripped the tape off of the previously taped seams. I've used other seam sealers on other tents with no problem whatsoever in this regard. My tent is now significantly less waterproof than it was before I put the Seam Grip on, and I will have to replace the tent if I want to camp in wet weather again. Additionally, this product leaves a very sticky residue on your hands that takes days to wear off.
This was a huge disappointment, a waste of time, unpleasant to use, and ultimately very costly in that it ruined my tent.
