Two layers of nylon webbing secure the D-Ring to a 840 denier 42-oz. neoprene base. A strip of neoprene covers the nylon, protecting it from UV and abrasions. Colored Pennel Orca® is glued on top to complete the patch. 2" D-Rings are stainless steel, and available in 6" or 8" patches. (8" patches are good for replacing D-Rings that have been removed because it covers the area of the old patch.)

Extra D-rings provide more gear tie-down options, and footcups give you greater paddling control. NRS Repairs demonstrates the steps for gluing them so they stay permanently in place.

How To: Inflatable Repair Adhesives Guide (4:16)

When repairing your Hypalon, PVC or urethane inflatable, or your plastic or composite kayak, it's vital that you choose the right adhesive and solvent for the job. Using the wrong materials will result in a poor repair and wasted effort. In this video, Josh from NRS Repairs shares an inflatable repair adhesives guide to help you understand when to use such glues as Clifton Hypalon, Shore, Stabond, Clifton Urethane, Vynabond and G/flex Epoxy. Solvents for repair prep are important too; you'll also learn when you can use toluene, MEK, acetone and alcohol.

    Does this product include adhesive or do I need to buy it separately?

      A:

      Very good product but does not include adhesive - the NRS-recommended
      Clifton adhesive worked very well - see their instructions and follow
      carefully for great results. Talk to their customer service reps about
      techniques.
      Good luck.

      The glue is separate, choose glue for the material you are attaching it to, hypalom, PVC , abs.

      Brian, you'll also need to purchase adhesive. We recommend the combination of Clifton Hypalon Adhesive, Item # 38701.01, and Clifton Hypalon Accelerator, # 38702.01. It's what we use in our factory for applying these patches.

      No adhesive. You have to buy it separate.

      You need to buy it separately. I was able to glue 4 of them using 1/4 pint
      of Clifton's hypalon glue and accelerant.

  • NRS 2" Pennel Orca D-Ring Patch

    Q:

    Will the Pennel Orca D-ring work for an Avon Hypalon boat?

      A:

      Yes, Steve, it is totally compatible. Pennel Orca is "hypalon". This article explains why we no longer use that name in describing it - http://www.nrs.com/tech_talk/pennel_orca.asp - We recommend the combination of Clifton Hypalon Adhesive, Item # 38701.01, and Clifton Accelerator, Item # 38702.01, for applying it. This is the same combo we use in building our boats.

            Comments about NRS 2" Pennel Orca D-Ring Patch:

            I've got an AB inflatable dinghy. The line with which we suspend it at the bow rubbed off the surface of the hypalon. I found the D-ring on the NRS website and ordered it.
            It's been on for a while now. It looks like it came with the boat and is a handy place to attach things. (And I rearranged the lines so they don't rub.). It was easy to install. Just follow the instructions.

                Comments about NRS 2" Pennel Orca D-Ring Patch:

                Extra D-rings on a raft is helpful in keeping gear organized. I also added D-rings at the bow and the stern so that I could raise the location of the lifeline around the perimeter of the boat. I like to keep the line higher up above the water. It is also a useful place to attach the bowline bag and rescue bag so that these do not drag in the water and have the opportunity to get snagged.

                          I found the patch hard to attach because the top and bottom portions of the surround were too small to get attached properly with the glue.

                                Added two d-rings to raft, one in front and one in back. One to the inside of the bow to clip raing gear bag to, one on the inside of stern to starp motor mount to. Both worked and looked great, like factory.
