    +1 on steel belts sawing the Stop and Go plugs in half. I didn't realize what was happening at first, but made it to a tire place that did an inside patch that got me home. Only lost one day of work. I did run out of CO2 cartridges pretty quickly. It's always the rear tire, isn't it.

    YMMV.
    If you use the rasp tool and ream the hole completely, it will hold. I also used the Stop-n-Go on my Volvo tire and had no problem.
