An ultra convenient crack stitching kit that contains all the components you need to repair vertical or stepped cracks in masonry walls.
Wall Crack Repair Kit
Our Easi-Fix Crack Stitching Kit contains all the components needed to permanently repair vertical or stepped cracks in masonry walls. It uses high quality helical bars that are easy to install and highly effective.
Repairs carried out using this crack stitching kit system will:
- stabilise the structure
- provide resistance against further cracking
- restore structural integrity
This method of crack-stitching is non-disruptive and avoids extensive and expensive construction work. It’s also a more reliable option than crack injection products. Once the repairs are complete, the bars are fully concealed.
Easi-Fix Crack Stitching Kit Contains:
Our crack stitching kit has been carefully put together to contain all you need to repair cracks in walls. It includes:
- 10 x 1 metre x 6mm Helical Spiral Bars
- 1 x 10kg Permacem Anchor Grout
- 1 x Mixing Paddle
- 2 x Nozzles
- 1 x Mortar Gun and Barrel
- 1 x Brick Jointer Trowel (May differ to one in picture due to world wide shortages)
How Helical Bars Work
The helical crack stitching bars are installed across cracks in a wall, effectively ‘reconnecting’ or ‘stitching’ the cracked masonry. The tensile forces are then evenly redistributed along the entire length of the steel bar, which restores the structural stability and flexural strength of the masonry.
Using a crack stitching kit
Repairs using the Easi-Fix Crack Stitching Kit are made quickly and easily with the minimum of disruption. They are also inexpensive and won’t cause any further damage to the wall.
Installing crack stitching bars
The stainless steel helical bars are placed into horizontal slots that you cut into the mortar bed joints across the crack. These can be cut using an angle grinder or a mortar chisel. You grout them into place using Permacem Anchor Grout that sets around the helical bar rapidly developing compressive strength. With the helical bars firmly in place, structural integrity is restored. For full crack repair instructions, please consult your kit or read our How to Guide: Crack Stitching and our How to Repair Cracks in Walls guide for further information.

Can you use helical bars above first floor windows or is the product only for ground floor brickwork?
Helical bars can return structural stability at all heights of a building when applied properly. Ensure you have the right type of bar to carry out crack repairs. Lintel repair is a different process.
Can you install helical bars through cracked bricks?
No, helical bars should only be used in mortar joints to provide structural reinforcement. Cracked bricks should be replaced or filled.
What tools do I need to crack stitch a wall?
To carry out crack stitching you’ll need a disc cutter to create a channel in the mortar so that the helical bars can be inserted. A blowout pump should be used to remove the debris from the mortar incision. Read our crack stitching guide for more information.
Can you crack stitch an internal rendered wall?
Crack stitching internal walls is possible but any plaster/render would need to be removed, exposing the masonry and crack.
Can you bend helical rods to 90 degrees to go around a corner?
The helical bars are capable of bending 90° around an external corner. Internal corners require a different type of installation as a 90° bend of the bar internally, wouldn't provide any support.
Does the kit come with longer helical bars?
Can helical bars be used on concrete blockwork?
Yes, the bars can be used with dense concrete blocks whereas lightweight blocks are too weak. The spacing of the helical bar for a simple crack stitch across a concrete block would generally be 2 to 3 courses, rather than 4-6 courses for brick.
