I have a garden hose that has a tiny leak and sprays a fine stream of
water, especially when the nozzle is shut off. Of course it is always
aimed at my pants leg. The hose is in good condition otherwise, so
it's worth repairing. To fix this tiny hole, must I cut the hose in
half and apply one of those splicers, or is there some sort of glue,
patch, or tape made to repair holes? I'd rather use a patch, because
those splicers always get stuck on everything when you pull the hose
around. I was wondering if a bicycle tire patch would work? Anyone
ever tried that?
You will need to splice it or use an end repair kit (cutting off the
part with the leak and putting a new end on the hose there.
Personally I find that when a hose gets one leak, more are not far
me too, after attempting all sorts of repairs i just replace the
craftsman garden hoses did have a lifetime leak warranty but i dont
know if the warranty still exists and sears is in danger of going out
you might try a tire patch overwrapped with something like Scotch 23
and then finally friction tape; that said if it is near an end it is
likely quicker, easier, cheaper, and more attractive to simply cut off
and install a brass end with a stainless steel hose clamp.
I guess we will have to wait and see.
I have read that they are restructuring, but who isn't?

Scary, half of Sears' value vanished within a year. My dad use to buy
everything at Sears - tools, farming equipment, furniture, clothes and
anything else. I believe at one time you could even buy a pre fab house from
them. Last time I was at a Sears store during a weekday late morning, its
was void of shoppers.
Craftsman tools that have absolutely no moving parts have been a value
buy, plus they have a lifetime warranty. Many of the other Craftsman
items are just other brands, contracted to Sears/Kmart. Look where
the tool is made, that can tell you a lot. Tools made in China are...
(well, you already knew that.)
i have a brand new craftsman slot head screwdriver that broke on first
use...... waiting for trip to mall, to save gas.
has anyne noted the new craftsman screwdrivers look different?'
wonder if they are coming from china?
actually you get everything that's inside the handle. Even the snap ring
that holds it together. Best way to avoid the problem is to just put the
dam thing in the vise, take the 3 pound mopar alignment tool and break the
handle inhalf. No repair kit will fix that.
I'd rather they did give me a repair kit for some of the older ones,
but I have not seen them in a couple of years. I did manage to trade
up to a polished "professional" 1/2" ratchet once though as they did
not have a regular one in their "rebuilt" drawer.
