    Picked up a bolt today and it was leaking faster than my air hose could fill it. So far so good, it's not even leaking.

    Good stuff!

    It's a vinyl cement good for patching tarps.

    Got me down the road 30 miles to a tire shop, wasn't in the mood for road service.

    I don't know what I'd do without my blackjack plug kit. It's plugged up holes as big as a 9/16" bolt, and works just as well as the patches the shop would slap on the inside of the tire. Paid for itself the first time I used it.
