No problem. I don't use mine that often, but it is still great to have. I have purchased a few hats on eBay I normally would have passed on because of their condition. Now I get them, put them on recap and they are as as good as new, especially older, wool hats.

Also, I'm guessing the leak can't be patched with tape or maybe a very thin layer of silicone?

I can't even find the leak.....it's very slow.....it looks good when I first pump it, then I walk away and come back in 15 minutes and you can see it's deflating

When I first got my nu cap it had a hole, when I told them they sent me a whole new kit.....So I bought a bike patch kit to try and fix the old one I tried several times to patch the holes but once they're under the pressure of having a cap on it they wouldn't hold......

That does sound like a lot of trouble to go to when you can order another one. Hopefully the one with the leak lasted awhile and saw some use breaking springing the leak.

yeah, I've had it forever.....I still wrote to nu cap.....maybe they'll send me a third one free lol.....but I still ordered one from Amazon......I didn't realize you accumulate points on amazon with your card, so it was basically free.....

Take some soapy water and rub it along the base and slightly press on the bubble. Much like a tire you should be able to find the leak to seal if you want. All of mine have failed in that exact area.

That's where my first leak was......did you ever successfully fix one?

I never tried to fix any of them. I have only had 3, but all have leaked. First one sprung a leak the first time I used it. Put a cap on there before I went to bed and by morning it was flat. I couldn't find the leak so I used the soapy water method to check because I had intentions of fixing it. After my wife said just take it back..well...I took it back and exchanged it. The second leaked after a month or so and I kind of gave up. Third one I got from only and it leaked after a couple of weeks. At that point I said screw it and haven't had one since.

The same thing happened to me with my first one.....they replaced it quickly and I tried to fix the other but I think once it has a hole it's done......now i'll be on my third, I need it though....I really do use it a lot when buying off ebay.....and getting caps rolled up in envelopes like I did last nite

Yeah getting Darwin's finest that send caps from eBay in envelopes makes the Nu-Cap a must.
