Instructions for using the Standard Model Tire Plugger
Important tips when using the Standard Model Tire Plugger
Flats Happen! Most vehicles run on tubeless tires these days. Regardless of thickness or pre-sealant additives they're all vulnerable to being punctured. Now you can experience the skill of a professional's hand and the thrill of saving time and money. Your tires can now be easily plugged on or off the wheel with this new shop style tool called the TIRE PLUGGER.
The Gun is a spring loaded device that 'drives' the plug into the hole. The shaft of the plug expands under pressure to fill the puncture. The mushroom head of the plug seats on the inner wall allowing no air to escape. This insures maximum reliability from its' revolutionary design. The vinyl zippered pouch measures 6 1/2" x 9" x 1" and weighs 1 lb. 14 oz. It's easily stored - so you're always prepared.
NOTICE: The accepted industry standard recommended by the RMA (Rubber Manufacturers Association of America) requires that an injured tire be demounted, the interior inspected, the injury drilled out, and a plug and repair unit installed by a trained professional.

The kit overall gets a good rating. The plugs are definitely a perfect replacement to the string tire repair plugs. We have used this item at least 20 times since we purchased it 3 weeks ago.
The four star is due to certain components in the kit. The reamer and probe tool I don't think were designed for commercial application or certain tires. There is little ease to put force on the handles on those rare occasions were it is needed. We manufactured our own t-handle probe tool and use the standard t-handle reamer. With that the kit is definitely a real time efficient and secure alternative to patching for those that want a plug. I would still recommend this kit to anyone.

I purchased one of these kits several years ago and have used it a number of times. I can't say enough good things about it. It is truly a life saver and everyone should have one. I never leave the house without it and recently purchased a second kit to keep in the other car.

Best to practice first on a duff tyre first, to get the procedure right.

This is a quick and easy way to fix a flat compared to other systems i have used in the past, Other motorcyclist in the club fixed a flat and never replaced the plug with another 5000km added to the tyre with no problems.
