Plugs Aren't Just For Hair: You Can Repair Tires

The tire plug is ready to be installed.

Now you finally get to play with those cute little tar-worms (the not so clean way to repair tires, but it works). Peel one of them off and thread it through the tool that has an eye on one end, like a giant needle. You'll have to pinch the end of the worm to get it in there, but it can be done. Pull it through until it is centered in the plugging tool.
