Flotation Device Care Tips and What to do Should your Float’n Thang Experience a Rip or Tear.
Flotation Care Tips:
Once taken out of the box, your Float’n Thang will gradually become more flexible and soft to the touch.
Use a damp cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt.
Any crease marks will work themselves out over time. Placing the flotation device in the sun or a warm spot helps the device conform to its originally desired shape. The Float’nThang loves warmth and sunshine.
CAUTION: Do not pull or force any large objects in the semi-enclosed right arm beverage holder, as it could result in damage to the device. If it should tear or rip, there is an easy fix.
Simply make sure the damaged area is dry, (the device will not absorb water). Apply a small amount of superglue (Gorilla Super Glue w/ Brush & Nozzle) into and around the ripped area. Hold it together for 2 minutes and it will mend as strong as it was originally.
Prevention: To add that extra level of strength to the semi-enclosed right arm beverage holder, simply apply a small amount of glue to the top area where enclosure meets the holder. It will dry in under 2 minutes.
Note: Keep in mind, it’s still foam. The important part is, it will not absorb water or lose buoyancy even with a tear. It’s durable and will last against the elements, however, it’s not a stretchy rubber band.
Unlike standard inflatables, the FloatnThang flotation device will never require a patch kit and will never leak. Solid Closed Cell Foam never loses buoyancy, which is its main attribute.
TIP: When floating with your favorite beverage, best to avoid open solo cups. Hate to see your beverage get diluted with pool or lake water. 😁 Midsize Tumblers work well.
