6 Compact Tire Plug Kits For The ATV/UTV Glove Box

Carry a little insurance on the trail with a tire plug kit in the glove box

If someone asked you how you’d fix a flat tire, you might say with a tire plug kit. But if you do not have one with you, how would that be possible on the trail? It has become very apparent over the years that even with a gentle driving prowess you can still get a nail or thorn in a tire that will release the wind within. There are also many objects in the trail that can unseat the bead of the tire or even cut the tread causing a flat. The term “snakebite” is when a rock pinches the tire sidewall between the rim and itself causing a small hole in the tire. This can possibly be temporarily repaired with a small tire plug kit. Maybe even allowing you to reach the truck for full on repair.

Here are eight tire plug kits that will fit in the glovebox or at the very least will ride safely in the cab or on the rack of your ATV/ UTV.

Coleman Mad Dog Gear ATV/UTV Tire Plug Kit: $19.88

So you have had a great day on the trail and then all of a sudden you clip a rock or run off trail and get into a thorn bush. Trail debris can puncture your tire leaving you stranded on the trail with a flat. But you remember that the Coleman Mad Dog Gear tire plug and inflator kit is in the glovebox and within a short time your tire is completely plugged, full of air, and you are back in the trail smiling again. This kit comes with patches, plugs, and even a CO2 cartridge kit to inflate the tire. This is a popular kit that will fit in any glovebox!Amazon

Kolpin Flat Pack Tire Plug Kit: $27.29

Kolpin makes some of the best accessories for any ATV or UTV, and this little tire plug kit is yet another reason we consider them for our needs. Packaged in a round plastic tube complete with a hand pump to inflate any low tire, the kit includes plugs as well as the tools to properly install them. Kolpin claims you can fix up to 10 flats with this one kit as well! If you want, you can just toss it in the glove box, but this rugged little kit will strap to a rack or roll structure for convenient storage until it’s needed. Let’s hope it is never needed!Amazon

Genuine Innovations ATV Tire Repair Kit: $29.95

Genuine Innovations has packaged up its G3516 model ATV tire plug kit to be compact and fit nearly anywhere. The kit is equipped not only with plugs as well as a durable reamer and install tool but a CO2 cartridge tool. This kit comes with three disposable cartridges and these can be repurchased to refill the kit should they ever need to be used. The kit comes in a zippered pouch and has a 12-inch braided hose to better reach those smaller tire valves.Amazon

Safety Seal Tire Plug Kit: $45

Safety seal makes tire plug kits that are somewhat suited for more truck and SUV situations, but we did find this kit small enough yet equipped properly for a UTV owner. Even the ATV riders in the group could benefit from its contents. Each kit contains 30 4-inch (10cm) repairs, metal T-handle insertion tool, extra insertion needle, wrench and set screw, metal T-handle spiral probe, lube, and instructions in a tough little pouch. By the looks of the tools it should be a very tough little kit!Amazon

Power Tank Kit: $47.49

Power Tank products have been lifting flat tires for many years now and are well known in the off-road industry. That makes this little compact tire plug kit a no-brainer when looking for choices of glove box-sized products for the trail. The kit comes with so many little accessories including a tire pressure gauge, pliers, small knife to cut off the excess plug, and extra tire valves in case you tear one off the wheel. The kit is quite possibly the most efficient and equipped, and this is why it is also one of the more costly of the compact kits in our selection.Amazon

Grit Performance Tire Repair Kit: $27.92

Since we had covered the more expensive kit we thought it would be good to give you a larger kit with a lower price option as well. Now this tire repair kit from Grit Performance may be a tight fit in the glove box of a UTV, it is still sized effectively for easy transport. This 71-piece kit also comes equipped with many of the essentials as well as a pair of rubberized gloves for a good grip on the tools. The hard plastic molded case keeps things organized and is tough enough to be tossed around in the bed of a UTV or in the glove box.Amazon
