I bought a tubeless tyre puncture repair kit from Grand Pitstop over two years ago, but never had the opportunity to use it until today. It’s a pretty neat product that uses rubber plugs instead of sticky gels with messy puncture repair strips and doesn’t need brute force. You can watch the product demonstration video to see how easy it is to use.
The odd thing is I have installed the Tyre Protector anti-puncture gel in this tyre. However, the gel didn’t do its job. At least not completely. The air in the tyre didn’t escape out immediately after the tyre got punctured. It took me over a week to notice that the tyre was flat.
It’s possible that the hole was too small for the anti-puncture gel to work. The Tyre Protector dealer says that I could test this theory by filling air in the tyre, inserting a nail and removing it out. The gel should spill out of the hole to seal it permanently. I’ve made a mental note of this to try out the next time this happens.
