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

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

      A patch can be a permanent fix if the hole in the tube is so small that you have a difficult time seeing or finding it. If the hole is anything more than a mostly invisible puncture, it's doubtful you'll want to rely on the patched tube as a permanent repair but it might get you home from a ride.

      I like to put glue on the tube and on the patch and wait 10-15 minutes then stick them together. Subsequently, I never have enough glue to use with all the patches. The glue runs out first. I wish they'd include a slightly larger tube of glue but it's been this way for the 40+ years I've been using these patch kits.

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

          I don't repair on the ride. I wait until I'm back home, so the extra time, to get a better result, is not a problem. Much better adhesion than glueless patches.

                    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.
