Z BAR PLUGS
The Z Bar Plugs is a tubeless tyre repair kit that sits inside the handlebars. It has two detachable parts. The first part has a needle tool as well as three 4mm thick tire plugs and the other part has a knife with three 2mm tire plugs. You don't need any tools to attach it to the handlebars; you just need to turn the aluminium outer. Each part can be attached to the left or right depending on the rider's preference. The Z Bar Plugs give cyclists the possibility to have a permanent repair solution for punctures to their bike whilst out riding.

Installation onto the handlebars:
1. Check that the handlebars won't be obstructed in any way before proceeding. It may be necessary to remove the handlebar plugs or even cut the handles if they impede access to the front part of the handlebars.
2. Place the connector containing the knife in your chosen position. Screw the plug in a clockwise direction by hand until secure. Repeat for the second handlebar plug.
Directions for use
Place the tyre plug on the punctured tyre:
1. Turn your wheel to find the air escaping. Extract any object still in there causing the puncture.
2. Insert the plug through the eye of the needle.
3. Insert the needle tool into the hole using the file to clear it if needed.
4. Forcefully pull out the tool by turning your wrist.
5. Reinflate the tyre if required and remove any excess with the knife supplied.
The plugs supplied in these kits are recommended for punctures between 1 and 5mm. For smaller punctures, we advise you use the Z Sealant range and for anything larger, to change the tyre. The user can chose to plug the tool in advance with a diameter they see fit in order to save time out on the road.
Check the condition of the plug and its strength before each outing.
