What's the best stuff to use to patch leakers? Cracks & BB holes!
Solder gun to melt the plastic back together has been my best luck. Any adhesive I've used eventually comes loose, plastic doesn't have good adhesion.
3m 5200 is often recommended. Scuff up the area.
On my remaining plastic decoys, hot glue gun. But of course we don't have extreme cold here to deal with. Sounds like the two methods in previous posts should do it!
Throw them in the trash and buy new.
JB weld over the hole or leak. Then when it's dry, aqua seal over the JB weld. Double layer and very strong in all temps. Some of these patches have lasted five years and are still good.
Lexel is good as well. I am moving to foam filled decoys so less of issue but if decoy has seen better days, it is off to the scrap heap.
Hot glue gun for pellet holes. Cut the bottom out of cracked decoys and adding a stake system turning them into field decoys.
Can of foam make sure to drill two holes in top of decoy or it will end up looking like a basket ball
