10. Patch Kit

How To: Patching a tube is not for everyone. It's inexpensive and easy to do. But if you're impatient while doing it, the patch can easily fail and leave you flat again. It is a simple process, though, and we will walk you through it. First, you need to inflate the old tube and find the hole. Hopefully, this is easy. But for tiny holes, you may have to hold the tube underwater in a sink to find the air bubbles escaping from the hole. Once you find the hole, be sure to hold your finger over it and squeeze the tube to find if there are any other leaks.
