Tire Puncture Repair.

Introduction: Tire Puncture Repair.

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

Yesterday I got a flat tire in a parking lot. What rotten luck! I replaced with my handy spare and got about to repairing it at home.

Step 1: Removing the Offending Object.

A full nail went in head first into the tire. I have no clue how it got in there but using my pliers I got it out.

Step 2: Repair Kit.

This low cost kit will be used to repair the puncture.

Step 3: The Repair.

Following the package instructions I put the plug into the puncture. Pressured the tire to 30psi and checked for leaks. No leaks so I installed the tire and I'm on the road again!

    Nice write up. If you are lucky to live in Texas, you can take it to Discount Tire and they will fix it for free including putting it back on your car.
