Wind stopper _ minor repair?

Hi There, I just bought a pair of wind stopper but one of them has some small holes on it. I have ordered from UK and I am located in HK so dont want to make a big fuss by sending it back. Any idea as to what type of glue I can use to at least secure the open so that it wont get any bigger? Please check out the images and many thanks

Epoxy will work fine, but would look messy.

If you have a female friend with one of the computer run sewing machines, you could have her sew a small red Cavallino over the holes. Do a few on the other one and it could look like it was done intentionally.

I would put some superglue on with the end of a tooth pick.

Why not just go to an upholstery shop, and have them replace the mesh? Or send them back.

was thinking of replacing the mesh with something a bit more durable but after ripping the plastic open not sure whether it will go back in one piece........

as taz suggested using epoxy will likely be the easiest but it will be noticeable......

markjayw is spot on - these arent great and certainly substandard on any 360.
The seller should pay return shipping, but I expect there is enough fabric trade talent in HK to fix these easily. I have a tailor in Kowloon who may be a good starting point ( how cool does that sound !! - had a suit made years ago when there on business)

apparently I have just fedex over the part however once they are replaced I am going to use the old one and see if I can come up with any permanent solution. They are not going to last forever anyway might as well think of something a bit long lasting.
