    I have one of those DIY kits.
    Only had one flat and that was
    last year. I picked up a small screwdriver bit in the tread area.
    After some reaming I inserted that wick with the adhesive.
    pumped it up and worked a treat.
    now I have new BFG ats and im not expecting ang flats soon lol

    I have not used the dog turd style kits in the past, although I carry a set, believe they are quick and effective.. If i have punctured a tyre its typically beyond the repair limits of these rope, so I use a glue on patch inside the carcase of the tyre to seal the metal bands from coming thru and then whack a tube in it. for tube repairs i like the heat vulcaniser type with the clamp and burning pad, however have had the same success with the glue on patches.

    G`day Timbo
    I do a lot of station driving where punctures are common, and have had the odd flat.
    I carry two types of repair kits , the ones your looking at.
    One is from ARB and is a product that can break and cause you a little injury. The problem is the plastic "T" handle will break and youll end up with the steel pin through your hand. with a flat it takes quite a bit of pressure to ream out the puncture and put a plug in. As you will see I`ve welded a steel T handle on one o the offending tools. The other set is Sealastic brand ,made in Germany. I`ve had this kit for around 30 years and boy it`s been a top tool. The cord plugs are what ever is avalible and so is the rubber sealant, if I`m out of sealant i just bung the plug in and never had a problem. Yes you can put two or three plugs in a silgle hoe and with luck it will get you out of trouble. I also carry a range of patches which are self adhesive and a roughing up file and patch roller. These also will and have gotten me out of trouble. To get the tyre off the rim I can recommend Tyre Plyers a great product and easy to use. A couple of tyre leavers wont go astray, if you carry a large, I mean a flat blade screwdriver of over 18 inches long , one tyre leaver is enough.

    Hope this helps

    Same here, bit bulky to store, but works great, try and store it flat as the lube will run left in a hot car for 12 months (as i found out), or tape around the lube container lid.
