Stop Go Tubeless Tire Plugger With CO2
A "Must Have" when you travel
This is one of those things that you hope you never need, but gives you peace of mind that you have it in case you do.
Saw a guy at a regular tire shop (for cars) use something like this to repair a puncture, so I suppose that this works similarly.
I have a bunch of CO2s for my bicycle flat kit, so one advice: IF EVER YOU USE THIS TO INFLATE YOUR TIRES, MAKE SURE TO GET YOURSELF TO A GAS STATION TO COMPLETELY DEFLATE THE TIRE and reinflate with regular air. CO2 permeates rubber faster, so this air is a temporary fix (tires will get softer faster.
Oh, price in RevZilla was cheaper than my local bike shop, and with RevZilla cash, you just can't lose.

Good for on the go repairs
Have not needed to use this kit yet but it's there for when I do and a little piece of mind between now and then.

Peace of mind insurance
I bought this product for a long trip of over 2200 miles as an insurance in case of a puncture. Thankfully I did not have any problems with my bike. The kit has all the tools required and packs up nice and compact. I am glad I have this with me.

Already had to use it
Very good directions...buy extra CO2 (threaded only).

Reliable standard for tubeless tires
I am NOT reviewing the version with CO2. CO2 is useless; you need to carry a pump. The plugger itself, though, works beautifully. Hint, if it's a small puncture, work that reamer really well. If the hole is too small, wires in the cord ply will saw through the plug and your repair will fail. Correctly installed, these plugs can last for thousands of miles - until it's time to replace the tire due to normal wear. Also, I suggest you make a copy of the instruction sheet as it will gradually wear and become illegible. I replace mine every couple of years. The kit itself will last pretty much forever, though I expect the rubber plugs eventually harden.

Piece of #@$#%
The plugs will not go through the insertion tube. I opened the package, read the instructions, Inserted a plug and turned the screw, nothing happened, soaped up the plug and tried again, nothing. Don't waste your money.

Peace of mind
I recently purchased the Stop Go kit for a friend's birthday gift. I've had a kit of my own for years although mine does not have the CO2 cartridges as I carry a small compressor in my saddlebag. Fortunately I've never had to use the kit for myself but I have helped two other riders. Both times the kit worked as advertised and got both riders home. The kit has sturdy components and is easy to use. Hopefully the kit is only needed on rare occasions which makes the laminated instruction card handy for a quick refresher before performing the tire repair. Great product.

Everything fits in a well made rugged bag and comes with laminated instructions.
