Ultra Leather Repair

Does anyone know of a product which can be used to repair the Ultra leather which is in 90% of our MH's? My sofa has a spot about 3" x 5" on which the outer part of the material has been scratched off. The backing is still there. Any help is appreciated.

Just from experience, we just got rid of an Ultra Leather couch because of the quality and condition, (didn't like the way it felt) and was told by a local shop it was very difficult to "repair" Ultra Leather since it is not real leather, but a synthetic leather.

Good luck,

Offshore; We had a small tear in an armrest (less than 1/8x1/4 inch) from a dog's toenail. Tried the "Permatex" Vinyl and leather repair kit. (Autoparts store) Hard to mix and match the exact color and the repair is heat activated, after several tries it is still slightly noticable. (But it's not a hole)
An large area would be very difficult to do. Heat is applied to a "grain paper" to cure the repair and impart a matching grain. It may be worth a try before replacing the fabric. Permatex - Pro Shop
You may be able to find someone in your area that does this professionally. (See above post?)

Good luck..

Check with the local auto dealers for who they use to do repairs. Also large furniture stores.

You can make a stylish patch from Duck-tape and put a matching patch on the other side.

There are quite a few leather & vinyl repair kits available and all work moderately well if the damage isn't too bad. I've used a clear sealer I bought at Lowes on our Ultraleather, to prevent a tiny crack or hole from spreading. Don't remember the brand name. Ultraleather does not seem to be any different for repair purposes than other "leather" surfaces, few of which are actually leather anymore and haven't been for the last 30+ years. Leather just doesn't hold up well as upholstery without a lot of care.

Google "vinyl repair" or "leather repair" and you will find lots of choices.

Duck tape to the rescue, I should have bought duck tape stock. Thanks to everyone for the ideas. I told my wife to through a pillow over the spot and no one will know the difference.

And what was your reply when you picked yourself up off of the floor?

Ultraleather is a polyurethane product. I don't know how well vinyl repair kits will work on it.
You might want to check their web site ultraleather home page for contact info and see what they recommend.

As I was getting up from the floor I said "yes dear" and kept my mouth shut.
