Small rip in KR leather

Like it says, I was cleaning my truck and found about a 1/4" tear in an L shape on the back seat. Anyone know of any way to fix it other than an all out replacement?

Short of replacement, there is no way to repair it without it being a visible repair. You may be able to take it to an upholstery shop and they can either stitch it or most likely patch it. But it will always be a 'visible' repair

I was afraid of that and it is too small to justify an all-out replacement. thank you

I found a place Dr Vinyl that says they can make it 98-100% better. I'll see next week when they do the work. But the $95 they'll charge is much less than a new cover for $464.

definitely a good choice to do something vs nothing so it won't spread

I had something very similar happen in my back seat, it was only about 1/2 inch, and a straight cut - don't think it went all the way through the leather. Before it had a chance to stretch or anything, I used some super glue to close the tear. That has been 2 years ago and still holds it closed. If you look close you can easily see where it was, but at least it didn't get any worse. I will say no one is ever in my back seat, so no clue how it would hold up to having real weight on it frequently.

I had it repaired by Dr. Vinyl. Honestly can't find it now. Very pleased. $95. Not happy it somehow ripped in the first place but at least it is fixed.
