Replacement of safety line attachments


Recently bought a 2nd hand humber assault 5m. I believe it has hypalon tubes. When I bought it the safety line on one of the attachments had pulled out. I repaired this with one part adhesive, emery cloth and a bit of acetone to ensure cleanliness.

Whilst using it over the weekend another one has pulled out. I don't want to start repairing them on an adhoc basis and was wondering whether it was worth replacing the whole lot in one go

Suggestions please

Thanks in advance.

One part adhesive is not worth wasting time on - it will not last long if at all. Check this topic a few posts down for good links for 'how to' glue repairs:
