5.0 out of 5 stars Light, strong, reasonably cheap, 14 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They're light and strong and much much less prone to bending than the round section wire pegs that usually come as standard. They pack smaller too.

The X section has been smoothed at the top but it would hurt if you trod on one which may be a consideration if you have lots of barefoot clumsy children (or indeed grownups) running round.


STOP 'N GO POCKET TYRE PLUGGER KIT
STOP 'N GO POCKET TYRE PLUGGER KIT

5.0 out of 5 stars It works and it's easy, 14 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: STOP 'N GO POCKET TYRE PLUGGER KIT
Provided the hole isn't too big (7 mm max say the instructions) I don't think this could fail to work - no tugging, shoving or gluing, just rasp the hole clean and inject the mushroom-shaped plug. It took me less than 10 minutes the first time I used it to repair a nail hole in the centre of my R1200ST front, and it hasn't lost any pressure a week later.
The kit says it's for temporary repairs, no more than 50 mph etc. As long as the tyre isn't damaged other than by the puncture hole (e.g. by riding on it flat or nearly flat) I'd personally be confident to use it at normal speeds and I'll probably use the last 2k of life in the aforementioned front before I get round to taking it off - but your bike & neck, your call!
It even comes in a handy pouch with a laminated instruction card which should fit in most toolkits. Remember no pump or CO2 included.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but some flaws, 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a smaller version which I like but the 51L one is just a bit too big for the quality of construction. If you overfill it it warps and doesn't close properly and it's easy to bend the internal steel catch - which can scratch your helmet if you're not careful. The base plate seems to be very low grade plastic and I'd be nervous it might fail if you loaded the box up.
It is a lot of space for a very low price though, and if you fit an external hasp and bolt it directly to the rack instead of using the base plate I think it would be quite useable.I got a secondhand Givi instead ....

Price: £11.29

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor index and short on detail, 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seemed very carelessly written, The index is appallingly shoddy (Schloss Linderhof, despite getting a page of text, isn't in the index) so you have to thumb through the relevant chapter every time to be sure you haven't missed anything. It seemed generally very short on detail - Oberammergau church (it's brilliant - Google it) doesn't get a mention for example. Spend the money on a local sim and use your smartphone instead.

Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Glues rubber rands back on walking boots, 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works for gluing back the rubber rands around hiking boots. Both hot melt glue and UV glue didn't last but Freesole is still holding on after a couple of hundred miles walking.
It's quite runny so it fills awkward cracks well, but you need to keep the item level while it sets - several hours. Curved surfaces are best done in several goes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great sound but annoying controls, 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound is excellent as several reviewers have already commented.
FM radio reception is better than my fairly expensive hi fi and desktop stereo although they're all beaten by my £20 Roberts!
DAB has worked without interference everywhere I've tried it.
Bluetooth has been glitch-free

The unit is badly let down, however, by poorly thought-out controls. How annoying you find this will depend on how you use it. There are no DAB presets and when jumping between stations it insists on spending about 3 seconds tuning into each station before it lets you move on to the next. It takes about 20 press - wait - press repetitions to move between radio 4 and radio 6 for example, and the projected display might be cute but again you have to wait for the letters to scroll past to work out where you've got to. If I want to change station, it's usually quicker just to go and find another radio.
The alarm is toggled on and off by pressing ANY button on top when the unit is switched off - very easy to do inadvertently as they are touch buttons, which can easily lead to rude weekend awakenings
These faults are a shame as they detract from what is otherwise a very good bit of kit - given the price tag you'd expect the controls to be a bit better thought out.
