Get home after a puncture
Don’t feel flat after a roadside deflation
Find the culprit
Locate the cause of the puncture and mark the area round it. Check the rest for damage and then carefully remove the cause, using a pair of pliers or grips. Ensure the plug is appropriately sized for the hole.
Get a Grypp
Gryyp type kits (£37.99) are the easiest to use. Screw in the key-shaped repair medium and snap off the twist handle when fully inserted. A Rema kit (£27.99) involves reaming out the hole with a special tool.
Glue and inflate
Add cement to both the plug and hole. Next, use the supplied CO gas
2 cartridge and adapter to inflate the tyre. These are insulated with plastic mesh to protect your fingers from the fast-cooling cartridge.
Check the repair by putting spit over the spot and looking for bubbles. Make sure the tyre is inflated to the right pressure. Remember that the fix is temporary and will have a speed restriction.
