Safety Seal

For those looking for the ultimate "worm" to plug a tubeless tire-

Safety Seal
North Shore Labs in Peabody,MA.
www.safetyseal.com

The only patented self vulcanizing tire plug.
No goop/butyl rubber application required before/during/after installation.
4" for m/c,atv & car applications.
8" for truck & hvy equipment applications.
Safety Seal tools will last you a lifetime.

No requirement to remove wheel or tire from vehicle.

My technique that has worked for 25+ yrs-
Remove foreign object from tire w/ Safety Seal Awl &/or pliers.
Insert Awl into hole by twisting & to separate cord.
Leave awl in hole.
Install 4" plug into Safety Seal split need insertion tool.
Air up tire.
Insert Safety Seal plug into hole & leave 1/2" tag ends exposed above tread of tire.
Do not cut tag ends off plug.
Inflate tire to recommended pressure.
Ride On!
Time of execution-less than 5 minutes.

Case in point
I installed 8 each 8" Safety Seal hvy equip plugs into a single 3/4"hole from a cab jockey driving over a piece of 3/4" re-bar in a Cat 988 loader.
Tire was replaced 2yrs later.
A rubber mallet & their lube helps tremendously on 10+ ply tires.

We've repaired numerous truck,bus,airplane,m/c & car tires on the Dalton/Haul road over the years.

I've installed numerous Safety Seal plugs @ -35 degF & colder w/ minimal preheat,mainly to keep hands/fingers working efficiently.
