Or in this case, a square tire. Just found this while browsing and I don't even know how this happened.



Could maybe keep it for climbing stairs? :grin2:

This does however present a great opportunity to look at the brake setup for those that haven't had the chance to do so as yet.

Anyone ever tried using a plug kit. Hard that you just stick it in and burn the ends for a better seal.
Also never tried this "Goop" I hear about.

Those are good but may only be good just to get you back to home or a shop where you can have a patch seal the hole from the inside, the latter i prefer as a long term solution.

I know it's just a short term solution until you get back to civilization but I'm just wondering how you use the plug. I've read various ways of using it but comments from other claim that the tutorial videos are wrong. So who's right?

The way i've known to do it is to puncture the hole with the tool supplied with the filler attached so you can get it to stick in, then burn the end off.

Did that with some cars of mine and never had a leak, but always changed out to the better plug mentioned previously.
