I have a cut in a sheet vinyl floor that is not glued down. I would like
to repair this by "injecting" some glue with a hypodermic through the cut
to glue the area surrounding the cut to the floor. I would press the vinyl
down and wipe/wash off any glut that came up through the cut. Then I would
place a weight down on the area until the glue set. If necessary, I could
use a vinyl sealer to seal the cut following the glueing process.
1. Is this a bad irea?
2. If not, what king of glue should I use that:
(a) Will adhere well when thin enough not to make a "bump" in the vinyl
(b) Can be cleaned up (glue may ooze out through the crack)
(c) Will not damage the surfact of the vinyl.

Your local hardware store will have a repair kit that contains everything
you need to do your repair, except for a seam roller, for about $15 US. If
you're careful, you can repair it well enough that you'll have to know
where to look to find the tear.
