OneUp Components EDC Tool Plug amp Plier Kit

PRESS RELEASE: OneUp Components

bigquotesFixing flat tires sucks. If you don't carry tubeless plugs, you should. They can save your ride!

Everyone in the OneUp office has used their plug kit at least once this season to fix a flat out on the trails. It's now a must have for us on every ride. Double Downs and a Huck Norris will only get you so far.

If you've never used a tubeless plug before, check out the video below.

The new Plug & Plier Kit contains a Tubeless Plug Kit (Jabber tool and 15 Tire Plugs) and Quick Link Pliers for 10,11 and 12 speed chains. The kit fits rattle free, inside the EDC stash capsule and weighs just 17g. $35 USD / $45 CAD / €31.50 / £28

The OneUp EDC Tool can be stored in your bike's steerer tube, or inside a OneUp 100cc EDC Pump. Lightweight and instantly accessible, it has everything you need for almost any trailside repair.

Available now at and at good bike shops worldwide.

How to Fix a Tubeless Flat in Under a Minute

1. Install the OneUp Jabber into your EDC Tool

2. Load the Jabber with 2 tubeless plugs. (Using 2 plugs gives you the best chance of fixing a puncture fast)

3. Reassemble the stash capsule and put your tool back in your fork. (The Tubeless Plug Kit also fits inside both the 100cc and 70cc EDC Pumps. The Pliers do not fit inside the 70cc Pump)

The next time you get a flat:

1. Grab your EDC tool, jump off your bike and find the hole as fast as possible. The quicker you plug the hole the less pressure you'll lose and the less you'll need to pump your tire back up

2. Stab the tubeless plug into the hole and leave about 5mm of plug outside of your tire

3. Hold the plugs on the tire and pull out the Jabber. Push the tail ends of the plugs in to the tire to seal it some more. Now you’re done plugging the hole

4. Grab your pump and reinflate your tire to the desired pressure. Hop back on your bike and finish your ride or race run

5. After your ride it is a good idea to trim the plugs back to flush with your tire tread. This will prevent the plug from being pulled out when you're next riding

It's worth practicing plugging a hole at home on an old tire before you need to do it on trail in a rush.

 While this is a bit pricey, I cannot deny that OneUp is one of the most innovative companies in the industry. I love the EDC and this is honestly the best addition I could think of adding to the tool.

 In my experience, using a piece of cotton t shirt works way better for plugging then these plugs. The cotton soaks up the tire sealant and creates a much larger plug that can be ridden until you wear out the tire.

 Hadn't heard of that, but pretty clever if it works well!

 Definitely something we keep in the EDC capsule for bigger slices.
  • 1 0
 I've got the cotton to work once and once I couldn't. But the bacon style strip worked perfectly in that case. Either way I just use an automotive tire patch when I get some as plugs can pull out at inopportune times.

 @acali: Traditional American style Bacon or like Canadian Bacon aka ham slice?
  • 9 1
 @Longtravel: Sorry if I wasn't clear. Do not use Canadian Bacon, pineapples, ranch dressing or any other inappropriate pizza toppings to plug your tires.

 Still waiting for water bottle mount in steerer tube.

 Haven’t you heard, it’s another new standard for 2019 called Boottle

 Cant believe your timing OneUp! I was about to cut a thread onto my plug kit to fit it into the capsule, now ill try and get this if its available in the UK. Keep these great ideas coming OneUp.

 Dang, that's a pretty convincing video! Even if I never get flats... Crap, now I just jinxed myself and will prob find myself remembering this as I'm cursing and fishing for a tube in the pack!

 @oneupcomponents Thanks for answering the “why” question WRT master link pliers. Assuning I want to carry a mini pump anyway, is there a compelling reason to store the tool in the steerer instead of the pump?
  • 2 1
 Just though I would add my wish list for the EDC gen2 tool if you are paying attention OneUp:

1) Somewhere add/incorporate standard spoke wrench slots
2) Somewhere add/incorporate a presta valve tool (I have one loose in the stash capsule right now)
3) Make the chain link holder so that is actually holds the links so that they do not fall out every time I take the tool out.
4) Figure out a way you could mount the tool in a carbon road bike steer tube.

These are minor points on the best tool I have ever used!
  • 46 1
 1) The chain breaker has size 0,1,2 and 3 spoke wrench slots
2) Use the chain breaker pin slot to tighten valve cores
3) Use a spot of grease on the quick link pins to secure them in the link holder
4) Sorry we've got nothing for you on this one, but 3 out of 4 ain't bad!
  • 1 3
 @OneUpComponents: Yep - I'm a dumbass. I am only going to give you 2/4 as the idea of putting grease on the link only means it ends up on my hands then on my jersey. Seriously though -let's figure out the carbon steerer though - I would love to have this thing on my road bike too!!!!!

 @dldewar: Just use a piece of electrical tape over the links to hold them in place. I did it and it works fine, plus it gives me a small piece of tape that may come in handy. It's really not a hard problem to solve.

 @riderseventy7: Hey - I did not even think of that as I thought there would not be enough room given the tight fit. Will try tomorrow. Thx

 @dldewar: specialized swat - they have compatibale carbon steer tube tools etc

 @dldewar: And that little piece of tape did actually come I handy today. A friend I was riding with snapped a spoke on the drive side, so the tape was used to hold the broken spoke against its neighbouring spoke.

 Hey @oneupcomponents any plans on offering just the plug kit with no pliers, and will it fit in a 70cc pump in this config? Also, I never tried using it, but wasn't there some kind of masterlink plier integrated into the multitool already?
  • 1 0
 Then again, it looks pretty easy to fabricate one from an injector and some glue...
  • 1 0
 There is a masterlink tool in the original EDC multi tool. It is clever and works pretty well, obviously as it is made by OneUp. However, going off YouTube reviews it seems a lot of people are too fat fingered to work out how to use it.

 a few other brands sell the plug kit without pliers. it's all the same stuff.
  • 1 0
 @andnyleswillriot: yeah,but I want one that screws into the tip of the edc carrier so I can use it as a handle, just like they do.
  • 2 0
 @sspiff: then support the brand and buy the kit.... Jesus.
  • 4 0
 Now just add some bacon strip snips to those fancy little pliers!
  • 1 0
 @OneUpComponents ....What I would love to see is a plug tool integrated into the multi tool somehow that allows a bacon strip to be loaded when folded. That way I can keep my Co2 on the bottom of the tool. Make it happen!

 Please sell the mini link pliers on their own. I will give you my money.
  • 2 0
 OneUp smaller & lighter & possibly cheaper if sold on its own.
  • 2 0
 @OneUpComponents Can you make an attachment for the co2 inflator that attaches to the edc steerer option
  • 2 0
 Nice, OneUp are a cool company, their little chain guides rule, as does, it seems, all their stuff.

 The jabber looks handy if you ride in woods near a dodgy area and need to shank someone out on the trial. The bacon strip will stop the bleeding too!
  • 1 0
 Haha this is awesome because I've been doing this very thing with my EDC Pump/Tool, but in a hack kinda way with parts of a Dynaplug kit. Great minds! Wink

 I missed where the pliers come in?
  • 1 0
 The pliers are quicklink removal pliers, and this add-on replaces the ability to carry a CO2 canister on the EDC.

 They don’t, like all quick link pliers. Seriously, why would anyone want to undo his quicklink on the trail?
  • 2 1
 @Loche: I want to know too. I can certainly see having a chain breaker and quicklink, but why do I need to take my chain apart on the trail?
  • 9 0
 @Rubberelli: The most common trail side issue comes from incorrect low limit screw location of a bent hanger allowing the chain to shift into the spokes. With so much dish on cassettes these days it can be impossible to get the chain out without opening the QL.
  • 1 0
 @Rubberelli: Break any part of your derailleur or chainring and you can at least get the chain off easily to coast home or finish your race. Has happened to several friends.
  • 4 4
 Where did you get that in 2018 the most common issue on the trails is the chain getting stuck...? Are you talking about races? Otherwise I can only see that happening to people running the mile-long sram eagle derailer. I assume these people dont know how to open a quick link by hand? Wiggle wiggle?
People can buy 5k bikes and still be clueless... there is a thing called pie-plate for a reason.

 @RedRedRe: Sorry for the miscommunication. I meant the most common issue that would require opening the QL.

 Glad I waited. I tapped my fork but didn't buy the kit, until now!

 Can I add it to a previous model of ecd?

 @OneUpComponents: Why no 12sp quick link capability?
