Unlike traditional tire repair, "Tire Plug: Gorilla Glue Edition" eliminates the hassel of pluging a tire.
Required equipment:
flat tire
a few corse thread screws of various sizes
Gorilla Glue
air compressor

Step 1: Step 1: Find the Hole

Locate the punctured hole on the flat tire.
<p>Had a screw in my tire when I went out to work this morning, it was a slow leak.</p><p>Damnedest thing, I had gorilla glue in my truck to do the repairs. Still monitoring for signs of leaks (hissing, deflating, bubbles, ect.) so far so good.</p><p>I made modifications on the fly to these instructions:</p><p>I used a much larger diameter screw to ensure a tighter fit.</p><p>I pushed the tip of the gorilla glue bottle into the hole to get glue inside the tire at a much greater rate than just gluing the hole.</p><p>As I drove the screw in, I covered the threads as they were entering the hole to make sure more glue entered the tire.</p>
<p>interesting, but Ill stick to using my trusty plugs.</p>
I think the screw must be 1 cm length or less, to avoid puncture on the opposite side of the tire.
@ rimar2000: Interesting point, i've used screws that were longer and i haven't experenced any issues.
I omitted to add this &quot;That is my humble opinion, but I am not an expert&quot;.
I don't understand what you mean by &quot;to avoid puncturing the opposite side of the tire&quot;? there is a rim in between the two sides? all that will happen is the screw will be sticking through into the air cavity?
In that moment I was thinking in tube tires. The opposite side is the inner part of the toroid. If the tire is not fully inflated, it would occur that the tip of the screw punctures the tube when hitting a stone or a pit.
The other side has allready been punctured by the offending object that caused the leak. Why worry about screw length?
1) Not necessarily the other side was punctured.<br>2) Always be cautious, especially when it costs nothing.
how does the gorilla glue react to heat on the higway, water on the streets, and cold conditions?
Wow, I wonder how long this repair will hold up?
it's an easy and effecive repair. my friend rode for months with out any problems.
