That's pretty much what I've been using for years.

Re: No Tape Drywall Patch


If it's a door knob hole, I just get a cheap adhesive doorknob hole bumper. I figure they are just going to poke a hole through my new patch anyway.

The metal patches are great. They seem spendy when you buy them, but once I stick it on in 2 seconds, I forget about the 5 or 6 bucks.

Ive been doing these for years also. I call them hot patches but when i first seen this the guy called them California patches. Very fast amd easy. Great miney maker but dont be foolish and use them behind doors or where they will get hit easily. Im from Michigan also.

Re: No Tape Drywall Patch


I think we tend to tag "california" on a lot of stuff.


patches, valleys, framing hammers

Re: No Tape Drywall Patch


I have heard them called California patches too, we call them hot patch's, and make them up quite a bit.

I like the suggestion about not doubling up the paper. I find they sink in a bit and need filled a couple of times.

That metal screen trick sounds good.
