Puncture Repairs

Locate The Puncture

Occasionally there is no trace of the puncture but it will be visible once the tyre is removed.

It’s Here Some Where

Locate the puncture, usually a protruding screw, nail or a piece of metal or glass.


Rotate the tyre manually whilst examining the tyre’s face and walls. You can also rub your palms and fingers gently across the tyre feeling for any irregularities. To prevent injury make sure you do this very slowly.

Remove The Puncture Obstruction

Get It Out

If it is still lodged in the tyre use some heavy duty wire cutters and strong side to side movements to remove the object that originally caused the puncture.


Try using some heavy duty cable cutters. They’re great for gripping and tugging.

Roughen The Tyre’s Punctured Area

Make It Stick

We use an air tool to roughen the surface all the way around the puncture to provide a key for the tyre puncture repair solution to properly bond.


You can use some good emery cloth or sand paper.

Repair The Tyre’s Puncture

Stick It

After the solution has ’gone off’ thread the patch leg through the hole and hold it for a few minutes to allow the tyre, solution and patch to bond.


Make sure the patch solution has actually gone off before you insert the punctur repair patch. Go wrong here and your repair will definitely fail.

The Tyre’s Puncture Is Now Perfectly Repaired

Finished At Last...Almost

Finally cut off the protruding puncture repair patch leg back to the tyre’s face. Your tyre can now go on to reach its natural life expectancy.


Be careful where you park. Avoid parking too close to building sites, industrial parks and skips.
