A black bear thought my Dark Horse would be fun to play with and ripped the fabric in a few spots and broke three poles. I have the parts to replace the poles but need to have the rips in the blind sewn before I can replace the poles and put tension on the blind. Have any of you gone through this?

My thought is to pull the hubs/poles and ship the fabric body back to DB for sewing. Not sure if they offer this service or if it would just be easier to find a local auto upholstery shop to do it. Will call the manufacturer on Monday but trying to assess options in the meantime. Thanks

Have you considered a boat top shop for the sewing?

Call Primos, they used to repair them. Been a while since I sent mine back to be repaired.

They repaired mine in the past. I can’t remember how I ripped it but I sent it in and the sewed it up. I’d say give them a call.

If have used a good quality tape on the inside before and it has held up. Tenacious tape would be best but black duct tape would also do it.

I had one sewn at a boat cover shop. He made custom boat covers.

I’ve patched several of them, with multiple rips up to 12” long. I had some heavy black canvas. I cut patches several inches longer and wider than the rip/hole and glued them over the rips or holes. You can do this several ways. One is to take all poles out of the blind so you can lay the blind flat on a floor, glue on the patch, let the glue dry and move to next rip/hole. Or erect the blind in a large shop or garage. Then rotate it so the rip is on the floor, glue on the patch, let the glue dry and go on to the next rip/hole. I put a weight on the patch to ensure good contact while the glue dries. The weight was bag(s) of lead shot. The glue I used was called E6000. It works well, but I’m sure there are others that work as well. This process works real well, for $8 of glue and $5 or so in canvas.

Thanks guys, will give Primos a call but thinking about either flying or having someone see a patch like Dale06 described above. My sense is the cost of the repair would probably not exceed shipping by much.

Will report back.

Id call Primos first then work from there,. I have 2 DB blinds and will repair as needed. They are the best.

Same O with the bears here in Colorado. At least 12 holes and tears to the Dark Horse blind. Use a spray on extra duty adhesive and heavy duty camo material patches, like the blinds material to patch. Blind needed a new face lift so I repainted the blind. Cost was less than $20 bucks to repair. and another 20 $ to repaint.

Look on the Primos website for a warranty repair form. Fill it out and send the blind in. I have done this twice for tears in the material. The second time a bull elk got pissed and took it out on my blind in unit 40. I wasn't in it. :)

They didn't charge me for repairs either time just the cost of shipping to them. If I remember right I think they shipped it back for free too. Got my blind back really quick too. Great company.
