Safety-Seal Tire Plugs
[ Monday - July 21,
I have used plenty of other kits out there, and the other kits' plugs
don't come anywhere near the quality seen with the Safety-Seal
plugs. If you have to use rubber cement to lubricate and help
seal the hole, throw away the kit or at a minimum the plugs. Get
yourself some Safety-Seal
plugs and experience tire repair the way it's
meant to be done. You'll be thanking yourself you did it.

Safety-Seal is considered the
of the line tire plug kit. Here is the result of the tire patch applied
on Vu's rear tire.
following Safety-Seal tire
patch plug was installed on June 30, 2007
and lasted for about 8000 miles until the rear was removed on July 13,
2008. How did I remember this? Vu and I found a nail on his brand new
rear tire (only a few hundred miles old) on the beginning of one of our
trips to Lockwood and it's documented here: Lockwood
inside, the plug was still soft and sticky and I measured it at about
1/2" x 3/4". There is no way that it can come out by itself. The nail
was about 1/8" diameter but the picture didn't show it clearly as it
was taken more than 12 months after the tire patch was installed.
The conclusion: it worked perfectly.
