General Installation Tips:
Schrader Valves SV: This is the valve type found on automobiles, wheelbarrows, motorcycles, and a lot of bicycles.
True Goo is installed into a schrader valve by screwing out the valve core and installing the True Goo through the open valve. The valve core removal tool, which doubles as a valve cap, is taped to the side of the bottles and quarts. The pointy, double pronged end of this cap is used to remove the inner core of the schrader valve by screwing it out. Removing the valve core will let air in the tire to escape.
On the 8 oz bottles and quarts, the top is cut to open. The attached tubing can be used to connect the bottle and the tire valve. The one oz/stroke measuring pump is used with the gallons for a fast and convenient installation of True Goo.
After the proper amount of True Goo is installed, reinstall the valve core, and reinflate the tire to the proper pressure.
Presta Valves PV: These are the narrow French Valves FV found on many bicycles. True Goo can be installed into most of these valves, but it is easier to purchase and use the True Goo Tubes with the sealant already installed.
More Installation Tips:
We recommend installing True Goo before the tire is used as opposed to using True Goo as a rescue for a flat tire. Allowing a tire to go flat can damage a tire and can be dangerous. Installing True Goo first will prevent most flat tires, saving the tire from excessive damage and will save you time, money, and aggravation.
Install True Goo where you have a good source of dry air easily available to reinflate your tires.
On most light and medium duty vehicles, the tires can be completely deflated without risk of them becoming de-beaded. I like to install the True Goo with the shop gallon while there is still a couple of psi of air still in the tires, this leaves the rims just off the ground. The measuring pump can pump against a couple of psi, but too much pressure left inside the tire will cause the air to push back by the pump. On heavier medium duty and heavy duty vehicles, the axle must be supported when the air is let out of the tire so the tire does not become de-beaded.
Several systems have been devised to install tire sealants into large tires while still under pressure. While these are not covered here, they save significant time waiting for the tire to deflate and re-inflate.
