Progressive Suspension plugs

I took a look at the Prog. Susp. tire plug link, RC. This is the first time I've seen them. How are they installed?

And sure, I realize that tire patching/plugging is a potentially volatile topic. This thread is not so much a recommendation of one type of plug over another as it is to offer some information. I mean, maybe a rider is strongly averse to string plugs. I remember when I first saw one, and thinking it was some kind of joke.

At that time, I did not know what kind of joke they were. And was forced to try one because, if you have a tire puncture, they are surely better than no plug.

I am glad that people liked the post. Thanks everyone.
