Putting d rings in. Need a roller to smooth out the patch, but don't want to pay $20 for one.

I just looked in our food cupboard and found a can of Bumble Bee canned salmon. There are no ridges on the can, and no ridge/lip holding on the bottom of the can. I think it would make an excellent roller for your purpose.
or, if you're alergic to fish . . .|

You mean "smooth out" or ensure |

strong contact? I never had trouble with wrinkles or anything that needed smoothing, but failure of some patches after 10 years (!) suggested that firm roller pressure might have made a difference. The texture of the patch and the boat surface after failure suggested that there was less than 70% adhesive contact. Speckly adhesion zones instead of overall contact.
I use a flat plastic scraper|

Always have used the handle end of a screwdriver or similar tool.
