Much better than the straight, screwdriver type handle.

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.

Well last time I did this the kept my car for 2 hours so they could drum up this ridiculous estimate on work needed. Sheesh. I can do this myself! Sure enough I found this product in about 3 minutes, hemmed and hawed for an hour on this or one of their other kits, and bought this one.

First off, take the tire off the car. Once you abrade the hole its just going to deflate and you don't want that while its bearing weight. My 10 year thoroughly enjoyed the sound of air coming out of the tire and finding out he can use his thumb to make it whistle. Anywho, carefully removed screw, carefully cleaned hole, threaded plug through the other poker and coated with the glue stuff. Inserted into hole and pulled out. Air leaking stopped.. good sign! cut off the excess plug and filled tired to about 75% and checked for leaks .. no leaks! Car has about 1000 miles on it since the plug and its holding fine.

Seriously, if you can change your wiper blades you can use this. Just make sure if the tire has any more damage than a hole in the tread you get it looked at. Tired are only pluggable if the hole is in the tread and generally if its a clear poke.

TL:DR easy to use and works.

Edit/Update: 1.5k more miles on the tire including a 400 mile round trip to the beach. Holding up fine, haven't even put air in it.

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.

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.

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 so well, I bought a second kit for the car. Definitely works.

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.
I put on 2400 miles, so it must be a good repair work.

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.

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.

I especially like the T-grip of the handles; it makes it easier to use the tool.
