The most useful accessory I've bought for my BraziBay in a while? Possibly.

Described as a 'get you home' repair suitable for use with cars, caravans, campervans and trailers. I wonder if this would help folk trying to decide if they want a rear cupboard or not in their Kombi? A can of this on board and in theory you don't need a spare, so you could have a rear cupboard rather than the spare loitering there, should you not want to hang the 5th wheel on the outside of your New T2.

Could be the most useful £6 you've spent in ages .....

I carry one of these, since my kitcar didn't have a spare. I still carry one in Dizzy, the main reason being that if you unfortunately get a puncture on the motorway, the last place you want to be is on the hardshoulder doing a tyre change. With one of these, in a few seconds, you can get going again to the relative safety of the next junction, or service area. Being a bit of a belt and braces type, I don't know whether I would leave the spare at home, but thats just me.
(As a ps, there is a product out there that you can inject into the tyre via the valve which stays in there until you get a puncture and then it instantly self seals, but I can't remember what it is called for now, bit pricey if I remember) Very Happy

Doesn't that stuff destroy the tyre though?

If you get a nail or something and use it you won't be able to get it plugged will you due to it being inside the tyre and self sealed?

I could be wrong, but it's always good to have something for emergencies anyway!

I've just seen that the slime one can be rinsed out so the tyre can be used again.

Good stuff!
