GASKET REPLACEMENT SERVICE, Universal (NON-Kokatat Brand) DRYSOCK (parts & labor)

$ 63.00 USD

Send us your dry suit or dry pants for fast, professional latex sock and gasket repair. We'll replace your old, worn out, cracked, gummy or torn latex drysocks with new high quality Universal ones. We'll give your other gaskets a free inspection and contact you if we feel it is time to replace them.

Our Universal Latex Drysocks last as long as any other latex socks we've tested, and we have Universal Dry Socks to fit almost any brand of watersports dry wear that came with latex socks or ankle seals. (For Kokatat brand dry-wear, we recommend having us install factory original Kokatat Dry Socks. For authentic Kokatat latex sock replacement, go back to "DRYSUITS/GASKETS" and select the type of gasket service you need (neck, wrist, etc.) for "GASKET REPLACEMENT SERVICE, "KOKATAT ....".)

We do not replace fabric dry socks, only latex rubber socks. We can install latex dry socks on suits that had ankle gaskets or we can install gaskets in place of latex socks.

We strive to complete the repair by the fifth business day (M-F) after your garment arrives, and we'll put it into shipping the first business day after service is completed. If you live on the east coast or mid-west, you can expedite the return shipping for this order with our UPS 3-Day Shipping Option at check-out and by sending it to us with expedited shipping. The shipping you pay for at our check out is for us to return your item to you after servicing it. If you are in a rush, call us about availability for our priority 1-day repair service (cost is 1.5x  regular repair). 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. 

Our Universal Dry Socks come in three foot sizes and two diameters of pant cuff size (we will pick the diameter to fit your suit). We can install either the original size drysock or a different size that fits your foot better. If your original drysock was too small or too big on your foot, enter that info in the "Comments" box at check-out along with your shoe size information and we can pick the best size for you. If you don't provide your sizing info, we can't guaranty the fit. For shoe size please provide your street shoe size without adjusting for liner socks etc.The largest of the Universal Latex Dry Socks, only fits up to about a Men's 11 shoe size foot; for size 11.5 - 12 we recommend having K.A. install Kokatat brand Large latex socks which fit up to a Men's 12 shoe size foot -- go back to DRYSUITS/GASKETS and click on "KOKATAT Latex Dry Sock REPLACEMENT SERVICE, PARTS & LABOR". For  feet with shoe size greater than 12, an ankle gasket is the best option at this time.

WASH your dry suit with soap and allow to dry before sending it to us. Health codes require that all garments returned for repairs must be laundered. An additional $25.00 cleaning fee will be added to your repair service for dirty and/or smelly garments shipped to us (or it will be returned without service at the owner's expense), and cleaning will add three days to the repair schedule. When using a front loading washing machine, use a small amount of liquid detergent, cold wash setting and hang to dry. Dry tops can be washed in top load machine. For dry suits, if you can't use a front loading washing machine, we recommend hand washing dry suit in a tub using the same instructions as above. See FAQ

PACK your clean item(s) with a copy of your Order Confirmation. 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 (L or R). Be sure to adjust the quantity above to account for total quantity to install on all articles.

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" and return to the "DRYSUITS/GASKETS" page.

Note we do not work on drysuits made for military use, rescue swimmers, or flight suits. These suits occasionally show up on E-Bay at seemingly cheap prices but needing new gaskets. Unfortunately these suits generally aren't designed with replaceable gaskets (gaskets are often sewn and seam taped over). You may be able to glue on our Universal gaskets yourself, but the result won't meet our standards.
