Safety-Seal Tire Plugs

[ Monday - July 21, 2008 ]

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 top of the line tire plug kit. Here is the result of the tire patch applied on Vu's rear tire.

The 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 Valley.

From 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.
