OK , I always carry 2 Plug Kits just in case .. well all those Trips to FL - picked up Metal in Outer 1" Tread rear Tire ..

When that Tire Warning come on it's almost already too Late ./.

Was Down to 18psi , so Limped over slowly to Gas Station & Dam the Glue Adhesive which Acts as a Lube was Gone as in Hard as Rock..

OK , so getting Metal Out was Harden then I thought as it was caught by 1~2 of Cords in Outer edge seems there are More in that Area ./.

Once Out - Took the Round Ruff File Tool & Ground Hole Smoother ( Well Rounder ) then Pumped some Air 20 Psi as by then gone Flat ..

Got " Fat Sticky Rubberized Adhesive String , have some 1/8" & 3/16" ( Placed into Pusher Tool ) ( Split on Two Surfaces ) as No Glue ..

Shoved in with Twisting Motion ( 2-3 Rev's ) - Then Quick Yank Out - Trimmed Off - Leaving 1/4" Protruding - ( At This Point I would have Lite on Fire ) but No Glue ..

Used Torch from Gas Stations Shop - few 20 seconds Passes almost Melting - then - Pumped it to 36 Psi as I Split on Patch more ..to Cool Off ..

A~OK it's Holding Fine 1400 miles now all Good .. Nub has Worn Down to almost Zero . . 馃槉:cool:

Few Insights to those Plug Kits : 1. There are 3 Different Kind ~ Auto & Truck ~ I get Both as Truck one has Larger Plugs for Larger Items - which
Roads seem to be Full Of ( I have Not tried 3rd Type which is Screw in Type Covered in Glued " Coated Plastic Screw ) Made of Soft Plastic ? Yet Your have to Screw It In ?
**** I Break all those China made Hardware all Time - Little Alone Soft Plastic Screw ? ( I'd probably strip out the Dumb Philips-head Drive ) ( Should be Sq. Drive on those )

2. Truck Tire Repair Kit is HD and T-Handles are Stronger Mostly Reason I get those - as - I have Broken those do to Fact - Today's Tires being Tough !
Also Twisted Unit to Clean Out ~ Is Not as Good as the File Type Puncture Hole - Cleaner ( File Type Works Better as need Round Hole ) = Good Luck Gentleman
