    Tire Plug Multi-tool

    I think I've seen a simpler variant of this tool with only the rasp and insertion rod, but folding into a compact package. The pliers and the knife are redundant items relative to my current tool set. Any suggestions

    The tool is enticing. I am concened that its diminutive size may make it difficult to use; sometimes it takes quite a bit of force to ream a tire. Would need to try one to be certain.

    Considering that the tool is the size of a folding carpenter knife, I'm not concerned about the handle being too small. My folding carpenter knife is nominally the same length as the Tee-handles on your typical gooey chord repair kit.

    However, I swear, I've seen a simpler version of this multi-tool, some where..........

    Yep. I wasn't having any luck either.

    The RockyCreek tool is certainly cute and their compressor appears to be packaged better than the similar Aerostich offerings. Hmm.....

    I bought the Rocky Creek tire tool. Used it to put a plug on the tire of my Miata, worked great on a auto tire so reaming a motorcycle tire should be a easier.

    Although not an all in one tool as OP was looking at, the Stop&Go is an alternative.

    Walter,

    I'm looking for a more compact package than the system you posted or this other option the mfg offers,
