Send your Kokatat brand dry suit or dry top to K.A. for gasket repair. We will install factory original Kokatat brand gaskets on your KOKATAT brand watersports dry wear that came with latex seals. For gasket replacement on all other brands of dry-wear or if you want a non-Kokatat gasket installed on a Kokatat product -- i.e. to get a gasket size Kokatat doesn't offer (more on this at the bottom of this page), go back to "Dry Suits/Gasket Repair Service" and select the type of gasket service you need (neck, wrist, etc.) from the item that begins with "Non-Kokatat....".

Use this item to arrange to have K.A. replace your worn out or torn gaskets and latex dry socks with Kokatat gaskets. We'll inspect all your gaskets and contact you if it is time to replace other gaskets that are cracked or gummy. Allow three business days for service (in addition to shipping times). You can expedite the return shipping for this order with our UPS 3-Day Shipping Option at check out as well as by sending it to us with expedited shipping.

Select the "Type", "Size" and "Quantity" of gaskets you want us to replace and click "add to cart". If you order only one wrist etc., please indicate which side you want replaced (Left or Right) in the "Comments" box at check out. If you want both wrists, ankles, or socks replaced, simply set the "Quantity" to "2". After finalizing your purchase, print two copies of your Order Confirmation and put one copy in the box with the gear you send us. Note: If you combine other items with this order, we will hold all items for shipment together with your dry suit/dry top after it has been serviced. To have other items shipped separately, place a separate order for your repairs. To add more repair items to your cart (i.e. if you want the neck and wrist(s) replaced), click "add to cart" and then click "continue shopping" to return to the "Dry Suits/Gaskets Repair Service" page, and add the rest of the repair items to your cart before checking out.

Note we can install either the original size gasket/latex sock or a different size that fits you better. If your original gasket etc. was too tight or too loose or you don't know what size gasket it had, enter your best guess in the shopping cart then put your pertinent wrist, neck measurement or US Shoe size information in the "Comments" box when going through the check-out and tell us whether the old one was: too tight, a good fit, or too loose -- then we can pick the best size for you. Please also write this data on the copy of the Order Confirmation sheet and put a copy in the box you send us. If you don't provide your sizing info, we can't guaranty the fit. To measure your wrist or neck circumference, lightly wrap a measuring tape or string around slimmest part of wrist or neck -- don't pull tight. For shoe size please provide your street shoe size without adjusting for dry socks etc.

We do not replace fabric dry socks, only latex rubber socks. We can make arrangements for the Kokatat factory to have waterproof/breathable socks replaced or added to your suit (assuming it is a Kokatat brand suit), but you must call us for that work. However, we can install latex dry socks on suits that had ankle gaskets or gaskets in place of latex socks.

Please wash your dry suit or dry top before sending it to us. Dirty and/or smelly items will be returned without service at the owner's expense.

If you ship more than one item to us in the same box, attach a note to each item specifying which type and size gasket(s) you want installed on each article as well as which side you want replaced. Be sure to adjust the quantity above to account for total quantity to install on all articles.

Kokatat's neck gaskets only come in two neck sizes: L and S (and the L isn't very large). For Kokatat gear, only men's and women's size Small dry suits and dry tops come with the S neck gasket, all other sizes come with the L neck gasket. However, a lot of women who wear a Kokatat Women's M size dry top or dry suit actually need a S neck gasket. There is no M Kokatat neck gasket, but a S neck gasket can be trimmed to make it fit like a "M". If you need a Neck gasket that is smaller than Kokatat's S neck or bigger than even a well trimmed Kokatat L neck, have us install our Universal gaskets on your Kokatat product (our Universal gaskets are available in both smaller and bigger sizes than Kokatat offers), go back to "Dry Suits/Gasket Repair Service" and select the type of gasket service you need (i.e., "neck") from the item that begins with "Non-Kokatat....".

Neck Sizes (measure around your neck, do NOT cinch tight):
S up to 13"
L 13" and up

Kokatat Latex Wrist Gaskets only come in two sizes: small and large. However, the gaskets are tapered, and you can loosen the fit of them by trimming material off the end. There is a cutting guide ring molded into the end of the gasket about 1/4" from the end to facilitate trimming in a straight line. To make a straight cut just cut parallel to this line. Trimming 1/4" off the small gasket makes it fit midway between S and L; trimming 1/4" off the L gasket makes it fit like an XL (if there was one). Trimming a S wrist is the only way to get a "M" type fit on wrists (even our non-Kokatat brand gaskets do not come in Medium wrists). Only Kokatat's Men's S, Women's S, and Women's M sized gear come with S wrist gaskets, all other sizes of gear come with L wrists. If you need a wrist gasket that is smaller than Kokatat's S wrist or bigger than even a well trimmed Kokatat L wrist, have us install our Universal gaskets on your Kokatat product (our Universal gaskets are available in both smaller and bigger sizes than Kokatat offers), go back to "Dry Suits/Gasket Repair Service" and select the type of gasket service you need (i.e., "wrist") from the item that begins with "Non-Kokatat....".

Kokatat ankle gaskets only come in one size (which we call M). Even our non-Kokatat ankle gaskets only come in one adult size which is the same as Kokatat's. Our non-Kokatat ankle gaskets are available in a "Youth size", but even most children are big enough to wear Kokatat's one size ankle. If you need an ankle gasket that is smaller than Kokatat's, have us install our Universal Youth size ankle gaskets on your Kokatat product, go back to "Dry Suits/Gasket Repair Service" and select the type of gasket service you need (i.e. "ankle") from the item that begins with "Non-Kokatat....".

Kokatat latex dry socks come in three sizes:
1 or Small (Men's shoe size 5-7, Women's shoe size 6-8.5)
2 or Medium (Men's shoe size 7.5-11, Women's shoe size 9-12.5)
3 or Large (Men's shoe size 11.5-13)
Newer Kokatat gear comes with waterproof/breathable fabric dry socks, only older Kokatat gear would come with latex socks, and if you own an older Kokatat GoreTex dry suit with latex dry socks or ankle gaskets, we recommend having Kokatat retro-fit it with GoreTex Dry Socks (call us to arrange this). If you need latex socks that are smaller than Kokatat's S sock, have us install our Universal latex dry socks on your Kokatat product (our Universal Latex socks are available in smaller sizes than Kokatat offers, but not bigger), go back to "Dry Suits/Gasket Repair Service" and select the type of gasket service you need (i.e., "latex dry sock") from the item that begins with "Non-Kokatat....".
