Park Tool VP-1 Vulcanizing Tube Patch Kit
Don't settle for second best when it comes to your patch kit. The VP-1 includes 6 flexible tube patches with tapered edges to help them blend with your tube's profile. They seal up flats better than stick-on patches to keep you rolling.
  • 4 round patches (25mm diameter) for smaller holes
  • 2 oval patches (25 x 35mm) for wider cuts and pinch flats
  • Self-vulcanizing fluid bonds the patch to the tube at the molecular level to prevent peeling
  • Includes sandpaper for cleaning the tube and instructions

        I'd like replacement glue tubes, they always dry out after one use.

          They work great never have had a problem, the only thing for a road bike the large patches are way to big I just cut in half, can not believe how much money you can save for such a easy job.

              Comments about Park Tool VP-1 Vulcanizing Tube Patch Kit:

              Used patch on 40psi 20" kids bike tube, and 70psi 700c x 35 tube. The thing to know is that the patches do not stretch, at least not as readily as the tube. After applying the 1st patch, before re-installing the tube, I filled it with air to test. As the tube expanded without restriction, the patch came off by itself. Do not do this.

              patch the tube, then install the tube & tire BEFORE filling with air. I have not had any issues doing it this way

                With three cyclist in the family, we experience a fair number of punctures. After going through 2 kits worth of patches, we have never had a patch fail. The patches are easy to install. They seem fairly thin, but they are strong. Great product.

                    These are the best patches I've found for 120 PSI tubes. Instead of buying dozens of tubes per year, I like to patch and keep some rubber out of the landfill. Others are too heavy or too inflexible. These are just right for high pressure fixes ....once you get the hang of how to get the patch to vulcanize.
