Get-U-Home Kit

Get-U-Home Kit


Car owners often have no spare wheel, or don’t want to change a wheel. The solution to their puncture emergencies is OKO Get-u-Home™:  It does exactly what it says.

NEW OKO Get-u-Home™ is safe for use with cars or other light 4 wheel vehicles: it is an emergency puncture repair system combining an award-winning digital air compressor and OKO’s special sealant. It seals most tread area punctures to 7mm, then you drive home or to the nearest tyre bay at reduced speed.  It is designed as a temporary solution to puncture problems, for low-speed driving (below 50 mph/ 80 km/h); and you must consult a tyre bay as soon as possible for a permanent repair or tyre replacement.

An afterthought by the OEM’s?

AN AFTERTHOUGHT BY CAR MANUFACTURERS?




Modern day cars are very complex and require huge attention to detail to maintain and increase customer satisfaction.

However, we believe that the OEM Mobility Kits to repair punctures are not fully thought through. 

Our opinion?     It’s just an ‘afterthought’. 

Yes the Compressor will work in an emergency but is not accurate enough to be used for regular use to check/correct tyre pressures when the tyres are ‘cold’ which is the optimum time to get the Manufacturers recommended tyre pressure for optimum tyre life.

It’s designed for just an emergency. No added value.

The Sealant is a generally a latex based product using ammonia to extend its life. Generally these sealants can only seal to 2-4mm in a car tyre and have an expiry date.  Generally 5 years. However, we purchased a competitor kit in August 2020, manufactured in late November 2018. In March 2022 it was found to be a solid block. What to do? Buy a new bottle of sealant when you’re stuck by the motorway 200kms from home?

So when a customer is actually able to use such a sealant, he will be asked to plug the bottle into the compressor so they do not come into contact with the latex. They get to the tyre shop and the tyre man takes a look at the unmounted tyre and says ‘Cannot fix lah!’

The tyre CAN be repaired, but the tyre man doesn’t want to spend 20+ minutes to clean out the latex, putting himself at risk of an allergic reaction to the latex. And the customer will pay him RM20-30?

The kit works for the customer, but latex based sealants generally only seal punctures 2-4mm.  

So the tyre is replaced.  When the tyreman checks the other tyre on the axle he sees that the tyre is more than 50% worn. His happy recommendation will be to change both tyres, because a new tyre and a heavily worn tyre leads to reduced handling safety.

For a relatively small ‘up-cost’ for a ‘no latex’ sealant and a quality compressor, Customer Safety and Satisfaction would be improved.

Key takeout points

– The customer could be presented with an unexpected bill for 2 tyres because of a small 2-4mm puncture

 – The Customer is protected from touching the sealant but the tyre technician has no such protection. No safety warning for him.

– The tyre is thrown away prematurely – it doesn’t help with  carbon reduction. Or it’s possibly repaired later and put into the used tyre dept. Not recommended.

Based on the OEM and Competitor products using latex we have produced a small card designed for a customer’s wallet, that advises the tyre man that ‘OKO does not use Latex and can be easily washed out. Please repair this tyre. Unless there is other damage that stops this happening’.

Both Petaling Jaya and Subang Jaya branches.

Training on the Get-U-Home Kit, for the Service Receptionists has been carried out and the product has been well received by the Team. It’s an ideal product for those wanting to change from Run Flat tyres and customers wanting to replace the original OEM’s  ‘Mobility Kit’ using the old latex sealant technology. Customers using these kits often find that tyre shops will not repair the punctured/sealed tyre because of how difficult latex is to work with. So customers have to purchase 1 or possibly 2 new tyres.

 IMPROVED OKO PUMP

IMPROVED OKO PUMP

The Tyre Sealant drum application pump, with OKO part number 0000.13OK is being discontinued with immediate effect. The pump is being replaced with a stronger pump with additional features to help customers apply OKO to their tyres. It of course fits the existing 25 litre OKO drums.

The new pump is of a higher quality and is stronger, with metallic handles and shaft.

The pump allows customers to apply OKO at 50ml, 100ml, 150ml, 200ml or 250ml strokes instead of the previously fixed 200ml stroke; and it features a tap/valve that allows for stoppage of flow at the end of the hose.

Old OKO drum pump

  • Plastic handle, aluminium inner shaft, plastic outer shaft
  • Flexible armoured hose, clip on valve nozzle with no anti-drip tap 
  • Pumps 200ml with one downward stroke. Non-adjustable
  • Screws onto the OKO 25 litre drum spout
  • Boxed, with English/French instructions
  • Pumps against tyre pressure of 45 psi/ 3.1 BAR

New OKO drum pump

  • Aluminium handle, inner and outer shafts: plastic grip on handle. Greater strength: rust-free, washable construction retained
  • Compatible flexible armoured hose, heavier duty clip on valve nozzle including anti-drip valve and tap to control delivery better
  • Pumps 250ml with one full downward stroke. Has adjustable collar and markings in 50ml increments on inner shaft, to allow 50/100/150/200ml dosages for accurate delivery of tyre sealant
  • Screws onto the OKO 25 litre drum spout
  • Boxed, with multilingual instructions
  • Pumps against tyre pressure of 60 psi/ 4.1 BAR

Military

Military

If a product has been tested, approved and used by the Military and Government Institutions, you can be sure that it works.

OKO was the only tyre sealant to achieve a SEATO part number following extensive tests, leading also to NATO approval.

It is in use in theatre and support roles all around the world. The leading armed forces procurement websites feature OKO and it is on the first page of Google for military vehicle puncture prevention searches.

OKO has been trialled and used by (among others) forces of the UK, Australia, Nigeria, Morocco, Denmark, Finland, Jordan, Israel and Algeria and has seen service in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.

The advantages of Government Security and Military tyre prevention using OKO are:-

• Reduction in down-time in logistic vehicles;
• Limited protection from small arms fire and shrapnel;
• Reduced punctures in remote areas thus decreasing the threat of immobility;
• Improved availability in FIBUA;
• Improved availability to first line combat supplies;
• Greater efficiency for wheeled ambulances;
• Extension to tyre life – damage from running on a flat tyre can be avoided;
• OKO qualifies as non-dangerous air cargo;
• Flexible use in a wide span of ambient temperature conditions;
• In extreme circumstances, or ambush scenarios, vehicles’ chances of driving out of a situation will be improved dramatically.
• OKO is an important aid to military and security operations, particularly for use in theatre and other harsh conditions.
Fitting OKO is a “spend to save” measure even in peacetime and as a counter-terrorist measure.

The cost of equipping all tyres with OKO is recouped normally when ONE hole has been sealed.

The ONLY tyre sealant brand to be listed in the International Army Technology procurement site.

Given the ‘VEHICLE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AWARD’ by Security Industry e-Magazine for OKO’s continuous development of safety solutions for Military and Security applications

See the feature on OKO in Security Insider magazine, Q1 2015, which was distributed to 30,000 military and security market buyers.

Off Road

Off Road-All Terrain and Military

Driving a tractor over a ploughed field or a forklift over rough terrain, you’ll be glad you fitted the original and best off road tyre sealant.
OKO Off Road can be found in the toughest environments in the World, so there’s nowhere in Great Britain that it won’t go.
‘Fit it and Forget Punctures’ in the tread area of the tyre.
Designed to seal punctures up to 12mm in diameter (can often achieve more depending on use and conditions).
OKO Mining X-tra Heavy Duty is for big tyres (typically 25″ or more) in the harshest locations of all, in mines, quarries and the worst construction site conditions: it will seal up to 20mm holes and slits in large tyres.

OKO LifeLong is not a sealant: but for large thick off road tubeless tyres that do not suffer a lot of punctures it can extend tyre life by 30% and its free flowing nature makes it coat the wheel rim, protecting it with a nanotechnology solution that prevents and can even reverse corrosion.
Best used tubeless: but will normally function with inner tubes (the size of puncture that can be sealed will be smaller).
For most applications, replaces the need for solid fill: much cheaper, lighter and does not worsen the ride.
Can be used on road up to 80 km/hr (50 mph).
Lasts the life of the tyre in most normal applications (subject to usage conditions): will not dry out or separate unlike some others. Washes out after use.
Buy Off Road in 1.25 litre bottles for smaller vehicles: or 25 litre drums plus application pump for larger vehicles or multi-vehicle use.

OKO Tyre Sealant is best used in pre-emptive mode. Pre-treated tyres on British Army Land Rovers (tested at Aldershot barracks) sustained up to 30 punctures in each tyre. Negligible air loss was experienced and the vehicles were operational some weeks later. OKO Off Road is packaged in 1000 litre IBCs, 25 litre drums and 1.25 litre bottles. These alternatives allow personnel to fit large vehicles and vehicle fleets BEFORE a puncture. Personnel can also carry the bottles as a “first aid repair kit”.

In the UK, OKO went into military service way back in 1988, following successful trials held at the Transport and Logistic Development unit at Aldershot, and also with: TLDT; 63 Airborne sqn RCT; 2 Para (on exercise in Kenya); AMF (L) exercises in Norway; Mechanical handling at RAF Lyneham. Internationally OKO has been trialled and used by (among others) forces of Algeria, Australia, Morocco, Denmark, Finland, Israel, Jordan, Nigeria, Lithuania and UN peacekeeping forces.

Heavy on Road

Heavy on Road



For fleet owners and the commercial tyre specialists that supply them, an effective truck puncture prevention system has become essential. No-one can afford to miss a just-in-time delivery: downtime prevents successful operation.

Likewise, bus and coach operators know just how disruptive and expensive it is to have a vehicle stopped with a puncture. Recovery is time-consuming and ruins the whole day’s schedule.

OKO Truck & Bus tyre sealant is the solution. It is specially designed to prevent punctures in faster-moving tyres with the greater heat that builds up inside them. (If another sealant company offers you the same product as they supply for off road uses, it means they have not developed an appropriate high-speed on road product).

Truck & Bus provides a permanent seal with negligible loss of air pressure. It is a speed-rated puncture protection treatment that can seal multiple punctures as you drive, thus allowing commercial tyres to remain operational for longer. It is water-based and rinses out harmlessly, allowing remoulding to take place.

Easy to apply from its 25 litre drum and pump, OKO does not adversely affect handling or ride characteristics; and by helping to avert slow punctures when running it tends to keep tyres at their correct pressure, thus maximising fuel economy.
