Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great This worked great! I had been researching vinyl/leather repair kits as I have several pieces that my kitten had gone to town on - all the kits have good and bad reviews. I wanted one that heat cured as I thought that would give best repair, so I figured for the money I would try this one. I took the advise of 2 other reviewers and made sure to precisely fill the scratches and used the iron directly over the texture patch (I did try the included heat transfer tool, but then decided to just use iron directly being super careful not to burn the leather). The instructions tell you to heat to 300 degrees - my iron only has fabric setting so I used the synthetic setting. The hardest part is mixing the color to match - so far I've done my off white / beige recliner - I used white with a little brown, yellow and smidgen black to get correct color. Most of the scratches are unnoticeable. For those who endeavor to use this, my advise is if there is a piece of the original leather pealed up or pulled back, try to preserve as much of it as you can - put the paint on the scratched part and reposition the flap then gentle press it into place with the provided spatula. Put the texture patch over and iron - it will blend in perfectly. I also used toothpicks to apply the paint and q-tips to clean around area (sometime my finger lightly). It is time consuming process, but well worth the effort. I happen to like fixing things and have an art background (bachelors in architecture) which definitely helped. Next I'm gonna tackle Burgundy dining chairs!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This stuff NEVER dries!! EVER. I paid a lot of money for this kit. Tried it several times..on the seat of my Lexus and on two chairs. Followed the directions TO A TEE. The adhesive and the patch parts are fine, but then you apply the color compound, the 'grain sheet' and apply heat, let cool, remove, RUINED...REDO...REPEAT...I would recommend this to my daughter's ex best friend whole's dating her boyfriend, and her ex boyfriend. That's about all.1

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, takes time Overall worked good! hardest part is matching your color, took me a couple tries. Use the iron on the drying process, that little piece of metal and stick will take you forever. Cover the whole grain piece in tape as well as the area you're working around. I used blue painters tape and works well. Just make sure you don't touch the iron directly to your leather/vinyl, keep the pointed end of the iron on the grain match piece. I've repaired mutliple areas now without issue - just takes time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope Followed directions - did not work. No grain transferred. Color did not dry/cure. Tears did not fill well. Waste of time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just need to apply heat The product works as advertised. Lots of negative reviews but before you turn away realize that the paint will not dry without heat. Instead of an iron I used a heat gun to heat the “iron” provided. Works so much better. Just apply the iron and heat it up constantly and iron out the patch. It will work if you realize the paint will not dry if you don’t have enough heat. First time using this and happy to stop the cracking in my seats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have used this on several items and have had no problems with it . The repaired areas have all become almost invisible. Not sure why some are saying this has no documentation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Days later not dry I followed the instructions, finally tossed the stupid tool aside and put the iron directly on the patch (on the second day). It’s been three days now and still not dry. pathetic! Minus 5 star rating!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot believe that 3m is selling this product! I just spent 15.00 and four hours try to get this stuff to dry. I am not an idiot but this makes you doubt your sanity! Instructions Were followed to a t over and over again and still not cured. Never again 3m !
