    Deflate the chair. Dry the area with a clean cloth. Apply glue to the back of the patch and allow five minutes for the glue to become tacky. Press the patch over the leak and hold it firmly in place for 60 seconds. Allow the glue to cure for 10 minutes.

    Inflate the chair. Check for additional leaks, as well as leaks around the patch with your soapy water. Rinse your chair with clean water and allow it to air dry completely before storage or use.
