I've been carrying a Nealey kit for several years, without needing it and without renewing anything in it. Is there some part of it with an "expiration date"?

Add one of these PVC T's to whatever kit you buy...it makes using the tool so much easier to push through the hole.. For $.45 you will be glad you did as shoving that screwdriver handle with string through the hole is harder that you think.

+1 on nealy especially customer service.

The saturated strings dry out after a while and become much less effective. I change mine out every year or so.

WOW ... thanks! Good idea! I also carry a small razor knife to cut them and a small file to ream out the puncture if not that big.

One more vote for the Nealey.



I've just placed my order with Matt. He's a real pleasure to deal with and mentioned if there were a group order placed from our organization he would do his best to give us all a discount. grin

He's a very nice man!

PS His standard price is really good without the discount!

Tire pressure monitors and a good tire kit and small air compressor a must on every bike not trailered to your destination! thumbsup

LOL ... I finally got to Home Depot and remembered to pick up one of these for each bike. Dang things are up to $.59 now! HA! Inflation I guess. But a good investment nonetheless.

As always another good tip from this site
