Have you ever been out camping, fishing, boating or four wheel driving and heard a ‘ssssssssssssssss’ coming from your vehicle? Well if you have, you might already have one of these to fix a puncture, but if not, read on …

Punctures are a pain at the best of times, but when you’re off the beaten track, the last thing you want to be doing is changing a tyre.

This gadget is a great time-saver and a must-have in our vehicle. Tyre repair kits are available from most good 4WD retailers, but this one is our favourite: The Tyreplier Complete Tyre Repair Kit, available here. It’s saved us on a number of occasions and we wouldn’t leave home without it.

Do you have a favourite kit or quick fix for fixing a puncture? Tell us about it in the comments below.

  1. Hi Bernie – I use the R&R Beadbreaker and tyre refitting tool which is a screw type device rather than using leverage. Another great South Aussie product which is a cinch to use especially for older people with back problems. The real secret to tyre and rim work is to use dishwashing liquid as a lubricant. I never use a rubber mallet which all the 4WD websites promote – never needed with the R&R and dishwashing liquid. Sunraysia rims are a piece of cake as are split rims. Well done in getting to be a finalist in Edison Awards – I heard your interview on 891 ABC radio.
