Love these kind of drywall patches
I cut holes into sheetrock to allow me to fish wires from one location to another-sometimes I cut the hole big enough to put my hand in :) I've removed and relocated a lot of wall receptacles and ceiling fixtures which leaves a hole in the wall. I've patched damaged walls and ceilings using sheetrock tape and joint compound. I've patched damaged walls and ceilings using the metal mesh patches for sheetrock with joint compound. These are very easy to use and if you are careful with the amount of joint compound you use and feather out the edge smoothly the patch is invisible. The instructions say to cover the entire back of the patch with a quarter inch of joint compound but that's really not necessary in my experience. With a reasonable-and workable-amount of joint compound on the back edges of the patch and a bit heavier on the part of the patch covering the hole itself the patch gets very hard. I find it's easier for me to finish the patch smoothly this way. Always prime the patched area with 1-2 coats of a flat primer paint before applying a finish coat/s of paint. This is critical if using a paint with any gloss at all like semi or high gloss paint because priming it with a flat paint will keep the joint compound area from showing up ("flashing" in painters' speak)

Excellent patching system
The best feature of this item is that it is plastic not wire so it is easier to cut to size if necessary. It has lines drawn on it for straighter cuts. It holds spackling well and the small holes allow spackling to seep through and stick to the wall without caving in from pressure. Makes a great door knob hole fixer. Prevents future holes. Multiple uses. Comes in a pack of 10 patches which is nice if you have multiple holes.

Works as advertised
The Strait Flex Perma Patch worked well for repairing a can light hole in our ceiling. Following the instructions, we just determined the size of the area to be repaired, cut out the appropriate size patch, applied the joint compound and "attached" the patch to the ceiling. I can't attest to the ability to sand the patch without it "fuzzing up." We didn't have to sand.

Quick and easy patching!
In order to wall-mount my flat screen TV, my installation required two large holes in the wall to string through HDMI, Power and other cables. Upon moving out I needed a quick and easy way to patch these holes and get my security deposit back! The perma-match is an excellent product and very easy to use. Cut to size and fix on the wall around the whole. I then used joint compound to cover up the patch and once dried, sanded it smooth. To make the surface uniform I even went the extra mile adding texture using a knock-down spray. I got my deposit back!

Beats using drywall tape for repair, hands down!
Just the right size for small drywall repairs. Thin, but quite stiff. Much better than trying to repair damaged drywall with drywall tape or a small piece of dry wall.

I got this product through the Seed Program for free. I have some damage from a lightening strike that I needed to repair. I am a semi-professional rocker and taper so I know a few tricks to fix certain damage In this case, behind my refrigerator I have damage to the wall from a fireman's "bar" where they were wrapping some sheetrock out due to a small file. The damage are about the size of my palm with about half of the rock being our of the"whole" and the paper damaged in the size of my palm. Normally, would have filled the space in with mud. It would have dried leaving and indent. I would have finished by taping the edges, then finish coat. This 8X8 patch covered the damaged area with some overlay. I filled the damaged area, followed the instructions of putting 1/4" of mud on the patch sheet, then applying and coat over it and it worked like a charm. i like how it will, in essence replace the sheetrock "paper" I had to cut aware and make this a solid path. I came see how this can help over cut light openings and certain other patch situations. mainly for small punches or holes I am glad I got it and highly recommend..
