If you puncture the camera on your bike wheel while away from home, it can ruin your mood. Of course, if there is a spare camera, there is no need to think about it - replace it. As a last resort, you can glue the camera. By the way, you don't even need to remove the wheel for this.

Step 1

First, unscrew the nipple in order to completely deflate the wheel. Don't lose it. Then rinse the tire with your hands so that it moves away from the rim around the entire perimeter. Otherwise, it will be very difficult to remove the tire.

Step 2

Pick up the corner of the tire opposite to the nipple with a mounting and hook it onto the spoke with a hook. Now, pick up the corner of the already drawn tire with one more assembly, and then also hook it to the spoke.

Step 3

Then take the third cut and do the same. Usually at this point, the tire can be easily removed from the rim around the entire perimeter of the wheel.

Step 4

After removing the tire, pull the camera out of it, pump it up a little. Find the puncture site by sound or visually determining exactly where it is blowing off. There may be several punctures.

Step 5

Scrape the area around the puncture with a spiked metal spatula. It can be found in the camera sealing kit. This is necessary so that the puncture site becomes somewhat rough, which will help to secure the patch more securely on the camera.

Step 6

Apply some glue evenly to the cleaned surface, place it on the camera and press the patch with your fingers for a few seconds.

Step 7

Now put the sealed tube back into the tire. Then place your hands on the tire into the rim from the opposite side of the nipple.

Step 8

Pull the tire completely onto the rim using the same rigs. Be careful - at this stage, by negligence, you can make new punctures on the camera. You increase the risk of puncture if you use a regular screwdriver instead of the installers.

Step 9

Next, inflate the wheel first to 0.5-0.7 atmospheres, then rock the tire to the sides. This should be done around the entire perimeter of the wheel and perpendicular to the movement of the bike. Otherwise, a “figure eight” may appear even on an absolutely flat rim.

Step 10

Now it remains only to inflate the wheel to the required pressure.
