    Whenever a plug is installed, ALWAYS snip off the protruding portion to prevent the plug from possibly being pulled out of the hole when the tire slips or spins on pavement. (I've had this happen before.)

    I would just add... have a 12 volt air compressor for roadside emergencies .... For those who think a spare is the answer .... Well it can be if your in a safe area away from traffic to do it safely .... On the highway this temporary fix will get you home safely ... Some people use these plugs and never have an issue and continue to drive on them ... But if you do have the time and it's really not expensive to have fixed with a visit to a tire shop and if you have newer tires and got the free repair insurance it's a no-brainer. I carry a professional version repair kit in my vehicles for these emergencies ... They are not expensive but get the red ones as they already have the adhesive on them .

    You forgot to put the rubber cement on the plug before inserting it into the tire!

    This is incredibly useful as it turns out hire cars don't come with spare tyres anymore! We got a fat nail in the tyre like that, and this kit would be perfect, if only I could find it in rural Spain!

    I can replace a manual clutch and a water pump or alternator but I watched a video on how to properly plug a tire You can never know too much

    Yeah. My opinion too. Even if you do follow the instructions, it will only work for small punctures on the tire face. Last summer, while sixty-odd km out in the boondocks, I hit something that put a 5 cm slash in the sidewall of a tire. No idea what; never heard or saw a thing. However my VW has a proper (if small) spare. In sixty years of driving it's the first time I ever had to use one of those min-spares. It worked fine. Got me to a tire shop and some dollars later I was back on the road. If I'd been stuck with a "fixer kit" it would have been an even less enjoyable experience. Thanks, but no thanks. Inflators just don't seem like a trustworthy alternative.

    I prefer to patch the tire but tht was excellent if you don’t wanna take the tire off are deal with the hassle of taking it to a tire shop. Good job 👍

    Everyone has their opinionI've fixed a few tires that lasted the duration of the tire by using these plugsJust do proper maintenance on your tires check air pressure during weather changes unless y'all wanna get screwed by tire shop cause they will say its to far outside of the repair zone just so they can get few hundred $$$ from ya

    Never wear open toe footwear whilst working. You drop a screwdriver and it’s in your foot. Worse, a hammer...🤕

    You need rubber cement on the patch noodle. It acts as a lubricant to make it easier to insert and also fill in the small gaps. This is not a good repair.
