I had a hand truck sitting under my deck for several years and the tires subsequently went flat.
After trying unsuccessfully trying to wrap the tire with a rope and twisting with a screwdriver, I decided to try a simpler method.
Step 1: Tools You Will Need
Deflated tubeless tire
Half a dozen zip ties.
Step 2: Clean the Tire Rim Seal of Debris.
After sitting for two years, my tire had all of the above.
Step 3: Attach Several Zip Ties Together Then Attach to Tire.
Attach several zip ties 3/4 the circumference of the tire
Surround the tire with the zip ties.
Add additional zip tie (if needed) to completely surround tire with zip ties.
Step 4: Attach Zip Ties Around Tire and Secure With Additional Zip Tie
Step 5: Tighten Zip Ties and Inflate
Inflate tire with compressor or bike pump.
Step 6: Once Seal Has Been Established, Remove Zip Ties With Side Cutters
Enflate to desired pressure.
Step 7: Additional Help
I also was able to reuse all but one zip tie for the second tire on my hand truck. Remember you only need to cut one of the zip ties to release the tire.
Save the zip ties that are attached to each other for future use on a similar project.
I apologize for the mediocre photos. When I took the photos I handed the camera to my son and said "take some photos". I was not sure it would work. When it did, I wished I had taken better photos ;)
