Excursus: Anfibio LifePatch as self-adhesive, temporary tie downs
The Anfibio LifePatch is not only a good emergency repair kit, but also suitable to improvise a (removable) StrapPlate or GrabLoop on the boat. Follow pictures and description for modification: Draw a square with a pen in the centre of a big LifePatch and cut out two small strips on two opposite sides with a cutter knife. Then remove the adhesive film protection from the square and neutralize the released adhesive area with a little tape. Then remove the remaining adhesive protection and attach the modified LifePatch to the desired location on the boat. Now a strap or a loop can be pulled through in order to fasten smaller things (eg throw bag, drinking bottle, etc.).
The removable tie down also make, for example, a new position for a rear back rest. As a temporary solution they are in any case a good test for positioning of permanently glued GrabLoops!
ATTENTION: not suitable for heavy luggage or as a carrying strap!
