Ripped seat pocket

This happened when my son borrowed my van. Any suggestions how to fix it or who could fix for me? I am in Irvine, CA

Garage
Could always just cover it with one of the molle system seat back storage units (most go across the front as well though - search them on Amazon to get an idea). Otherwise, try an Auto upholstery shop - they may just pull the entire seat cover off to fix it.

Could always try these guys too if no local shop is available: https://www.theseatshop.com/?gclid=C...caAlkbEALw_wcB

FWIW I HATE when people damage by shyte and make no offer to repair in on their dime OR offer no apology---learn a lot about people (no matter who they are) when it comes to doing the right and honorable thing.

Such an incident tends to be the last time I loan them ANY thing!

There are types of blindstitches that you can do - done right you can do them from an orientation like that and then pull it all together and have a good look.

Now that the whole forum would like to at least lightly punch little Timmy in the back of the head - please share what in tarnation actually happened there?

Not a fix but I agree with TwoXentrix. I installed the below product. It does not exactly fit. it took a bit of getting it into place. But I am happy with it. It adds extra storage and looks pretty nice. I you want I can send photos later. Just let me know.

Repair

This is what I decided upon. A bit ghetto in looks, but function is 100%. A side benefit was I was able to tighten up the elastic at the top of the pocket that had stretched out.

I didnít go with blindstitching, but did stitch it up.

He moved some furniture in my van while moving into his new apartment.
