Rainfly window repair

I have a Marmot Limelight tent that the see-through window needs reglued around the edge onto the tent. Is there a common household glue that can be used for this? And what is the best glue and/ or procedure for repairing this?

Why should this post be closed?

As the comments could be removed at some point I'll transform @Bob1's comment into an answer:

This page here essentially explains step-by-step how to solve your problem - they also talk about a Marmot Limelight tent, and also have the issue that one of the transparent 'windows' came loose.

--> MARMOT TENT – REPAIRING POLYURETHANE WINDOWS

To summarize (in case the link gets broken in the future):

  • Peel the window off completely.
  • Peel off any glue remainders.
  • Clean area of old glue residue with some cleaning alcohol (only the seam part, try not to get it on other areas of the tent).
  • Apply new proper glue in the place where you cleaned off the old glue . The linked page recommends "Seam Grip" - maybe just ask your local outdoor store, they should be able to help you.
  • Glue in the window and put some weights on it so it doesn't move during curing.
  • Enjoy newly sealed window!
