    • Make sure the torn parts are completely covered. Overspill is okay.

    • Connect and hold the parts of the flip-flop to the adhesive with your hands for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes the adhesive will be hard enough to let it sit. Let the adhesive dry for 24 hours.

    • Be sure to wear gloves and be in a ventilated environment when applying the adhesive.
