Listen up! The battle damage assessment and repair (BDAR) kit’s ground combat tire repair stand-alone kit, NSN 5180-01-542-8146, has been updated.
The tire repair kit is now smaller, lighter, tougher and costs less. Here are some specifics:
- It has a much smaller footprint and its pouch design fits into a cargo pocket.
- It’s lighter and easier to carry.
- It has two extra plies embedded into the tire plug, making the plugs more durable and repairs longer-lasting. The plugs are double-bagged, which doubles their shelf life.
Improved BDAR tire repair kit
Remember, repairs made with the tire repair kit are just temporary and meant to get you out of a jam. A repaired tire has to be replaced ASAP.
The kit can also be used to repair leaking radiator hoses, metal fluid lines, and gaps around doors, hatches and O-rings.
The tire repair kit comes as part of BDAR kit, NSN 2690-01-659-5620
