I have a very handy husband. I swear he can fix anything and everything. It all stems from a very creative mind while growing up. He was always taking apart things and putting them back together again. I always rely on him for fixing everything around the house. Including flat bike and stroller tires. Now he is passing these talents on to our kids. My oldest son can jump in and help out when dad isn’t home. He was fixing my flat jogging stroller tire and I wanted to document it so I could remember how to do it myself. I thought maybe you’d want to know too! So here is how to fix a flat jogging stroller tire.
Start off by removing the tire from the stroller. Then take the tire off of the wheel. And remove the inner tube from the tire and fill up with air. Fill your kitchen sink with water enough to cover the top of the inner tube. Put the inner tube in the water and start squeezing it under the water so you can see where the puncture is. You’ll see bubbles coming up from the puncture.
Use a pen to circle the puncture so you can find it later.
Dry off the inner tube and get out the tire repair kit. We like using the Bell Stopper 500. It includes 20 Glue-Less patches, a metal scuffer and 3 tire levers.
Using the metal scuffer, scuff up the area around the puncture.
Now add the patch sticker.
Then really make sure it’s on there tight by using a scraper.
Now the puncture should be fixed. Now you need to put the inner tube back in the tire.
Add the tire back to the wheel by using the tire levers.
Now pump up the tire and you’re set!
Add back to your stroller before use though 😉
