Is the Dynaplug® repair permanent?
Whilst the Dynaplug® repair is designed to be long-lasting, ANY repair made to a tubeless tyre from the outside should not be considered permanent. A tyre that is run flat or underinflated for even a short length of time can suffer damage which may not be visible from the outside. The repaired tyre should be removed as soon as possible and checked professionally for any signs of damage, both internally and externally. Unless this is done, NO repair can be considered permanent even if the tyre shows no outward signs of damage and is not losing pressure.
How many repair plugs can be used in a single puncture?
In an emergency up to four plugs can be used in a single hole to allow you to get to a tyre shop where the tyre can be professionally repaired or replaced.
How do I add more than one plug?
It is important NOT to cut of the tail of the plugs if more than one plug is needed. Instead fold and hold the tail flat on the tyre while the next plug in installed. A maximum of 4 plugs can be used. Cut all ends off once the tyre has been inflated.
What kind of tyres can the Dynaplug® system repair?
Dynaplug® works with all tubeless radial tyres on cars, trucks, SUVs, ATVs, motorcycles, tractors, RVs and other vehicles with a maximum tire thickness of 1-1/8” and a minimum thickness of 3/16” at the point of the puncture.
Can the Dynaplug® system be used to repair Run-flat tyres?
Dynaplug is fine to use on run flat tyres. The Dynaplug® actually works best on Z-rated run flat tyres, as the rubber is formulated to be softer for better traction and performance. Because of this the repair plugs bond even better with the tyre.
Can I repair a side wall puncture?
No repairs of any kind can be undertaken to punctures in the side wall of a tyre.
If the tyre is completely flat, can it be repaired?
Yes. However, it’s easier to remove the puncture object and locate the puncture hole when the tyre contains air so it is best to inflate the tyre first. If the tyre is completely flat, please note that a tyre that is run flat or underinflated for even a short length of time can suffer damage which may not be visible from the outside. The repaired tyre should be removed as soon as possible and checked professionally for any signs of damage, both internally and externally.
Will the repair plug(s) make my tyre unbalanced?
No. Testing has shown that a repair plug is equivalent to a small pebble lodged in your tyre.
Do I need to ream the hole in the tyre before inserting the repair plug?
We do not recommend that you do this, as it may result in the hole being enlarged to the extent where repairing the puncture is not possible.In a situation where a nail or other object has entered the tyre at an acute angle, it is acceptable to use a small reamer to straighten the hole so it can be plugged successfully - when inserting a plug into the tyre, you must ensure that the insertion tool is at right angles to the surface of the tyre, otherwise the insertion tube may bend if excessive force is applied.
Does the tyre require air pressure before plugging?
We recommend a minimum of 0.8 bar (10 psi) to ensure easy insertion of the Dynaplug® tool into the tyre. It’s a good idea to have your Dynaplug® pre-loaded with a plug and ready to use before removing the nail. This will ensure minimal air loss. We also offer an air stopper as an accessory, this can be used to temporarily plug the hole while you get the Dynaplug tool ready.
How do I inflate the tyre once it’s been repaired?
We recommend using an inflator, such as The Motoflator. It’s the world’s smallest 12 volt inflator with a built-in gauge, and runs off your motorcycle or car battery.
Will the plug affect the tyre Pressure Monitoring System?
The Dynaplug® plugs will not affect your tyre pressure monitoring sensors.
Are the repair plugs available in different sizes?
Only one size plug is available. It is safe to use up to four plugs for larger holes for emergency repairs only.
What is the pipe cleaner in the Dynaplug® tyre repair kits used for?
If the insertion tube becomes clogged with adhesive deposits from the plugs, you can use the pipe cleaner dipped in alcohol to clean it.
