How To: Replace a Drysuit Wrist Gasket
I hope you enjoyed my How To video and I hope it helped you understand how easy it is to replace your latex wrist gasket on your drysuit by yourself. All the videos I've watched and people I have talked to say to use Acetone to clean the latex before applying but I was too lazy to go out and buy a thing of Acetone so I just used Goo Gone. I've never heard of anyone using Goo Gone to clean the latex but I figured it should work since it is meant to clean and not be harmful. It seemed to work pretty good and I have no regrets using it.
Things you will need:
A new Latex Gasket or two
Sharp Scissors (Brand new if able)
A cone/jar/bottle (anything round that will fit snug in the sleeve to keep it round while the Aquaseal dries)
Fine Grit Sandpaper (for roughing up the latex for glueing)
Acetone (for cleaning the Latex after roughing up with sandpaper)
Paper towel (for cleaning the Latex after roughing up with sandpaper)
Aquaseal (use a small beaded line of Aquaseal around the old latex)
Popsicle stick or dull plastic knife (spread the Aquaseal evenly and in a small layer from edge to edge around the old gasket)
Masking tape (put the tape around the gasket edge so it is covering the gasket and the Gore-Tex Sleeve so it will prevent the gasket from moving and keep the over-spill Aquaseal from getting on stuff while it dries)
