  2. I have that same type of tire puncture repair kit in my truck toolbox. Has come in very handy a couple of times I’ve been on back roads and got I bit of metal or a sharp rock has punctured me tire. I used your method and was back on the road in short order. I enjoyed your tutorial.

    1. Hey Carson
      Thank you for the visit to my website and endorsement of the repair kit, yes I use it almost daily and all I have to do is replenish the sealer strips frequently, a great kit to have for on the go puncture repairs, simplicity itself.

      All the best
