For a tread puncture, the first step is obviously to remove the object that did the puncturing. Once the hole is clear, shove the reamer in and out of the hole a few times. This enlarges the hole to the proper diameter to accept the plug, removes any tattered or fractured tread and cords, and uncovers fresh rubber for the plugs to bite into.
