Dynaplug Launches New Lightweight Tubeless Repair Tool

Mar 26, 2021
by Ed Spratt  

DynaPlug has revealed a more affordable version of its tubeless tools with the new DynaPlugger.

The new tool looks similar to DynaPlug's previous offering, but it swaps the usual aluminum body to wallet-friendly glass-filled nylon. Not only does the new material keep costs down, it now makes the tool hit the scales at just 35 grams.

Alongside the tool itself, DynaPlug will also supply you with three extra standard plugs, a standard insertion tube, a mega insertion tube and a pipe cleaner. The standard tool kit comes in at $29.99, or you can also buy the DynaPlugger with three MegaPlugs or with five more standard plugs for $34.99. If you want to opt for the most expensive option for $41.99, this includes five more standard plugs and three MegaPlugs.


The USA-made DynaPlugger is available now and comes with a lifetime warranty. You can find out more here.

 Could the metal tips on the plugs damage the rim of the wheel? Not even joking... I think this is a legitimate question

 No, you don't have to jam it in that hard, and most of the time the length of the plug won't even reach the rim

 It's really, really unlikely. Dynaplug says they've never seen that happen, and I believe them. You'd need to bottom out your tire in the exact spot where the plug is for it to even contact the rim, and that little brass cap isn't going to do much damage - remember, it's attached to something that's very flexible.

 It can... I've personally seen it poke a hole in the rim tape (however it didn't damage the rim). Then you're sticking a tube in or walking.

I use regular sticky rope plugs / bacon strips. They work, but they're a pain in the ass if you need more than what you had preloaded in your jabber.

Although recently I've had fantastic results with Stan's Darts. IF THERE'S SEALANT IN THE TIRE, IT WILL WORK. However, you'd be surprised how many people let their tires go dry. And the Darts are $5 a piece...

 @krka73: i've just recently added darts to my kit. i have the bacon strips as a first option with the darts for the stubborn punctures. haven't had to use either yet this year but glad to hear the endorsement!

 I was wondering where they would end up if floating in the sealant like a ship in a bottle. Also the idea of leaving an arrow in a wound is a painful memory

 @Supergirl56 I've been using them for a couple of years in the desert southwest and never had a problem with them damaging a rim.

 I have a dynaplug for my motorcycle, and I actually bent the dynaplug insert tube on a very stubborn motorcycle tire puncture (it was a weird sideways puncture and no plug type device from any company would have worked). I imagine the bike version uses a much lighter metal for the tube, and your rim is likely to damage the dynaplug insert tube instead, if you push on it like an enraged gorilla

 @BenSawyer: if the length of your plug isn’t reaching the rim the only thing left is to jam it in hard .

 shit, i am going to get very tecnical here, in the case that the brass cap dings the aluminum rim, the brass will only be able to damage the paint and the first layer of aluminum oxide, it wont damage the structural part of the aluminum itself. It is not common knowledge, but Aluminum is actually rusted, it is just that aluminum rust is aluminum color so we dont notice it. After it being damaged it will take a couple of weeks to rust again and heal the damage the brass did.

 @Narro2: aluminium oxide....not rust. It's chemically treated to oxidise and create a barrier protecting the alloy.

 @Narro2: you just blew my mind! I’ve noticed scratches on aluminum disappear before, but never realized this is what was going on.

 @Narro2: not sure that will leads to any rim failu, and even, better to ride further and replace rim at home, the walk further and do not replace

 The problem I’ve encountered with the original Dynaplug is that flats requiring a plug are so few and far between that when I finally suffer a flat where I need a solution, the metal-tipped plugs no longer function. Over time the plugs fuse inside the applicator. This new version doesn’t appear to resolve this issue.

 This is exactly my experience. I downgraded to regular tire bacon which worked flawlessly last month when I had to use it.

 don't keep a plug pre-loaded in the inserter.....

 I've had a plug kit for ages and I always carry it, but I've never needed it. I've had thorns and nails and whatnot in my tires, but sealant has always taken care of it.

 Looks "stabby" enough for general trail use.

 @bbqmike: Yes but it's a sort of friendly stabbing as you plug the wounds. Use for less serious altercations.

 I've never had an issue with traditional bacon strips. They're dirt cheap, easy to apply and easy to combine. They've always let me finish my ride (and often run way too long). If/when they start to leak, I take the tire off, remove the plug(s), clean the casing and either slap some gorilla tape on as a boot, or if it's a really massive hole, sew up the hole with fishing line.

These look neat, but the metal bits give me pause and I guess why bother with something more expensive and proprietary?

 Where are we supposed to carry this item? The ol' prison wallet I'd guess.

 I used the Stan's Dart about 4 times now and it's worked on all 4 occasions. Currently running an Aggressor out back with a dart in it for the last month without issue. Even put one in the sidewall of a DHR and it worked flawlessly.

 They really need to consider making the pokey bit longer now there’s a turf war going on with hikers!

 i had the original dynaplug because i was clueless and found it to be cool looking.

the 4-6usd generic quivalent is however much better:

- bacon strips dont have a metal head, cost 8usd for 30 (ie a lifetime), are longer

- the tool is more convenient

- the whole thing weight 5gr instead of 50gr and fits in my handle bars

on the trail i had dynaplugs fail to plug due to their single strand design (you end up puttin 2 in), but not the regular bacon strips which leave a thicker double strand in. incidentally i just fixed 2 bikes with it yesterday from people on the trail. also did I mention its 4usd?

 I’ve had success using the Dynaplug to fix a puncture at the start of Downiville. The plug held air for the life of the tire.

I carry both a Dynaplug pill and a Stans Dart. One for small punctures and one for large punctures.

 I really like the Dynaplug design. it's super easy to plug a puncture (which is all i ever end up with some how). HOWEVER, those plugs do not last the life of the tire. the metal tip falls off after a few rides and the plug material ends up failing and falling out. That being said, it gets me through a ride or three, but i make it a point to remove the dynaplug and patch it properly ASAP. Just my experience.

 Had a similar early version of this, I thought the refills were too much $$ compared to standard strip plugs

 In my experience these are a bit small. I just carry some larger bacon and call it a day. Get to burn calories with a manual mini air pump to keep my HR elevated also. Win win.

 D'am, the Lezyne one costs 1/6 of that for the cheap end and 1/8 of the most expensive version of this.

 This specific dynaplug is cheaper on Amazon than whats listed here, and competitively priced with the generic brands

 I can honestly say I havn't had a flat in over a year and I ride in the southwest. Am I just extrmely lucky? Half the time I don't even carry repair stuff...

 I carry a Dynaplug for smaller holes. I also carry a Stan's Dart, thinking that the bigger (fluffier?) material will be handy for a bigger gash in the tire, but have never used it. I heard from a friend last week that he had a smaller puncture and his Dart failed because of the plastic tip. That's an n=1 experience of course, but doesn't argue against me carrying the metal-tipped Dynaplug.

 @Lugan: I had issues with the dart in the past if the hole is smaller. I usually take the plastic piece off first to figure out the angle of the rip then attempt with the dart. I do carry bacon and the dart though just to be safe!

 Stans Darts SUCK! Tried using them twice and both times the cheap plastic tip broke off. Dynaplugs are the best and the cheap Slime plugs work good also. I carry both and carry a big Slime car tire plug incase I get a huge puncture.
