Yep! Me too. It took three ropes to plug it, but it worked and got me home. 25 miles

I used the BMW kit twice (once from a large drywall screw, the other from a fish scaler blade from a Swiss army knife). It has these doughnut-shaped plugs and rubber cement. Worked very well with CO2 (first time ever patching a tire). I got it to an air compressor and refilled with normal air.

I haven't tried anything else.

Stop-N-Go

I got a “Stop-N-Go” kit when I first read about them years ago. I have had some stay in, and had some pop out. The last time one popped out was when I was going down the freeway in Los Angeles. For an emergency it will get you home….maybe. I’ve got 3 kits and I’m ready to up-grade to something more reliable.

Rope plugs suck when it's 30 degrees out. They like to break while inserting. A mushroom plug is much easier in cold climates.
