How did the patch stuff work out DoriumLux? Did it hold as you hoped?

Hot Glue velcro (soft side) around the perimeters of all the mesh windows. And hot glue or sew velcro (tooth side) around fabric pieces cut to the shape of your window.
I'd do it on the outside of the tent with the soft side of the velcro so that when the covers are not in use you don't have to deal with scratchy stuff on your tent.
And on the outside b/c I imagine the dust might otherwise gather between the inside of the window and the cover, so that when you take them off you'll have a pile of dust to deal with. PLUS you can choose some cool funky fabric to pimp out the outside of your pad ;-D

Anti M swears by clips or clamps, but I don't know what she uses.
