Tear in the leather

i have a tea in the leather of my drivers seat, it runs right next to and parallel to the seam, it is from where the previous owner apparently slid in and out all the time, i have tried a repair kit but it keeps busting back open, any other suggestions?

Re: Tear in the leather

I am a boot maker by trade. The best way to patch it is to get a piece of thin leather, same color if possible that is larger than the tear. I would use kangaroo if possible. You can buy Barge Press cement ant Hobby lobby or even wally world. Slide the patch under the tear and lightly apply the glue. It takes about 10 mins to cure and then press the tear back together on the patch and apply pressure to ensure great adhesion
