Cut, scraped, and even worn sidewalls can easily and securely be patched using the Park Tool TB-1 Tire Boot. The TB-1 is made with a thin, extra tough film that will withstand the most demanding conditions on the road or trail until the tire can be replaced. A super strong adhesive using 3M technology keeps the TB-1 in position while reinstalling the tire and tube. There's no easier or more effective way to boot a cut or worn tire.
To use: simply peel off the protective backing and position the TB-1 inside the tire casing over the cut or worn area. NO GLUING or CLEAN-UP!
NOTE: Always replace a cut tire as soon as possible.

It is really tough to be on a long ride and 10 seconds after you hit a rock or pot hole you hear your tube blow!
You have everything - replacement tube, tools, CO2 cartridge - and then you see the cut side wall. Thank the Lord you have your TB-2!
This tire boot works great. you simply pull the thin transparent plastic off the TB-2 card, attach on the inside of you tire surrounding the damaged area. There - done.
replace the tube and you are on your way.
The instructions clearly say 'replace the tire ASAP'. I have gone hundreds of miles with a boot repaired tire without any problems.
Much easier to deal with than a $1 bill.
