Send us your dry suit for fast, professional latex sock and gasket repair. We'll replace you're 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.

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.

Note: The standard repair is to trim the old latex socks down to about one inch and glue the new socks on top of the old. But if your old socks are coming unglued from the drysuit fabric, we can only glue the new socks on the other side of the fabric (the clean side).

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 four shoe sizes. 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.

Select the "Size" and "Quantity" of drysocks you want us to replace and click "add to cart". If you order only one, please indicate which side you want to be replaced (Left or Right) in the "Comments" box at check-out. If you want both socks replaced, simply set the "Quantity" to "2". 

PRINT two copies of your Order Confirmation -- keep one and put the other in the box with the gear you send us.  If you don't have a printer or it went on the frizz - write your order confirmation #, name and address on a piece of paper and insert it in the box you send us.

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 to be 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.
