    Mate i was away with on the week end collected a screw into his tyre and next morning it was flat . No worries I'll pull out my ARB tyre repair kit and plug it , pulled the screw out , put a 6.5mm drill bit in the cordless drill and cleaned the hole left by the screw , went to push the rubber strip in and this happened . :(:(:(:(

    I rang ARB this arvo and they said call past and we will replace it , only problem is nearest ARB store to me is an hour and a half away .
    Pretty piss poor for what is supposed to be a premium product . :mad::mad::mad:

    I am surprised that happened as they are normally a good product

    I have an Aldi kit, no problem with it. Very solidly made. Comes with spare reamers and plug fitting needles, Only thing not so good is the tubes of glue are small, but Ive bought a heap of spare tubes so still good.

    The ARB kit did get the job done in the end but how long will it last ?

    don't let the tyre nazis see this as they will bang on about how tyre repairs should only be done by tyre shops by "professionals".
    I'd ask for a refund rather than replacement.

    I've used mine a few times now, it's been excellent. About 12 years old now...
    Maybe something's changed..
