Bought this a month ago to plug leak in an SUV tire. I've probably had half a dozen tire fixes done over the years. Pull the tire off, go to the corner garage, pay $20 and someone plugs the tire. I've never seen it take more than three minutes for one of these guys to do.
One Day you will thank me ...

For the price BUY this "near" T-Handle tire plug kit. Much better than the straight, screwdriver type handle. Why? It will save you time on the road when , and we ALL will get a flat sooner or later. Case in point. Came home from work for lunch and afterwards, driving back to work, I hear a thumping sound. Pull over, a big arse nail stuck in the tire and leaking air. Had one of these with me. Threaded the needle with the plug strip. Uh Oh, rubber cement tube is dried out since the last time I had a flat. Hmmmm ... OK, lets see what happens if I just plug the hole without the rubber cement, which I've learned is mostly used as a lubricant. Hole plugged, snip the tail. DONE! OK, so the tire needed a little air. BUT, I have the REALLY good Viair 00088 88P Portable Air Compressor , Attach that to my battery, then to the tie, and the compressor tops off the tire in under a minute. So less than 10 minutes after getting a flat, I'm back on the road without having to jack up car, dismount tire, drag out the spare, mount spare and unjack car. It's been several weeks now. No loss of air. Buy this under 6 buckos INSURANCE. BTW T-Handles give you more leverage than the screwdriver straight handle types.
A piece of cake!

I’m in a very rural area so fixing a flat in the tread without removing the tire and running 12-miles to the closets garage was my goal. I have some big rigs with 10-ply tires and this kit made quick work out of a screw hole from one I dropped in my stone driveway on my Chevy K2500 pickup … I also have purchased a magnet to check for more before my tire finds it. I’ve used the Slime liquid for years to keep my tires inflated but recently replaced a few tires so I’ll also purchased more of it. I had a leaking sidewall that the Slime liquid fixed for years and I gave that 5-stars. This kit has everything needed and the T-handles are much better than the straight handles on a Victor set that I tried but couldn’t get the plug in for lack of good leverage. This kit is 5-stars but it loses one from me because once you open the package there’s no way to close it and keep the parts together so it ended up in a bag. I’ll be buying another one for my Expedition. Not to insult anyone’s intelligence but if you want to use this on the road you’ll likely need a compressor but if you catch it quickly like I did you can get the tools out, pull whatever is in the hole, ream it out and leave the reamer in you stop the air, load up the other tool, add some glue to it, pull out the reamer and quickly insert the plug and you won’t lose much air and should be good for a slow drive to an air pump.

I bought this thing because my old one has screw driver like handles on it and it kills your hands. The firsd time I used it the handle came off when I tried to pull it out of the tire. I guess you get what you pay for.
Slime Tire Plug Kit

The first repair kit I bought made it a snap to plug my motorcycle tire after running over a drywall screw. Checked out a "how to" video on YouTube for a visual, and was honestly done in 5 minutes.
Worked for my tire.

Had a nasty nail on top of my wheel, this helped patched it been driving for 2 months and traveled to Canada and no air leak.
Uncomfortable handles. Not great.

I found the handles uncomfortable and the metal bends. Not suitable for use on pick up truck tires. I was barely able to patch the tire. I've used other brands and this one is not as good. Did the job, but it was not easy.
excellent plug kit

Excellent plug kit. Very convenient. I carry it with my motorcycles on my rides along with compatible air compressor in case I get a flat tire in which I did. It's easy to use and quick.

Bought this for my jeep, worked like a charm where a long 10mm bolt punctured my tire. Didn't even have to remove the tire and used one long plug.
The plastic is plenty sturdy and could take my weight as I pushed it ...

The plastic is plenty sturdy and could take my weight as I pushed it into the tire. Great thing to have on hand especially for the price.
