It includes sticky strings, so sure.

My preference is to pickup sticky strings, reamer/insertion tool, and cement for a few bucks anywhere that has an auto parts section. A stripped down compressor. A bottle of travel shampoo from a motel for help with hard to detect leaks.

I bought one of these a while ago. those co2 canisters will get you just enough air in your tire to make it to a close air pump. I have since bought a little electric pump that sits under my seat, but I still have the rest of the kit.

I’ve seen they have like small bicycle pumps that work on our tires. Thought that was cool

This.

That kit contains crap you don't need. At some point in my past, someone suggested the brown strings which I think you could get at o'reilly, and they did work better than the black ones that came with the cheap slime kit I got at walmart. I had a puncture in a near-new tire that I had tried to plug with the slime stuff, still had a slow leak, but the brown strings cured it.

I'll note, in hindsight, it *may* have been contamination that caused an ongoing slow leak from the slime plugs, so cleaning a hole and surrounding area may be a factor.

You definitely want to carry a small 12v air pump if you plan on roadside repairs. Make sure you have a way to hook it up! Most come with a 12V accessory plug.

The string plug kit like Andy mentions that has a T-handle reamer and plugging tool, along with a small electric pump that stores under your seat. Don't waste your time with a manual pump.

This pump rocks! I've carried it on all my travels and it's served me very well.

https://www.motopumps.com/shop/mini-pro

Very accurate, lighted gauge, built in light, never gets warm and will pump to very high psi. There's an ADVRider discount code applied if you order a Motopump product from the link there (scroll down, it's just under the pump comparisons):

Yikes. While those are nice even my fancy Dynaplug inflator was less than the lowest cost unit offered. The sub $15 units have worked fine for me.

If the inflator used the non-threaded co2 cartridges, which I already have several boxes of, I'd be more interested.
