Forespar TruPlug® Emergency Plug - 5 x 9 - Plugs Holes up to 3.5
TruPlug is a soft, cone shaped plug designed to conform to the irregular and unpredictable shapes of a hull breach - controlling the flow of water while you pump.
Whether its a round hole caused by mechanical failure, or an elongated tear due to impact, TruPlug adapts to slow or stop the leak. Unlike old fashioned wooden plugs, TruPlugs unique shape allow it to be compressed by hand or cut to fit. It also gets in the hard-to-reach locations and can also be pushed into a gap using a screw driver or similar tool.
Dimensions: 5 inches x 9 inches. The TruPlug is suitable for holes up to four inches in diameter.
One TruPlug for every 10 feet of boat length is recommended. For boats under 30 we recommend two TruPlugs and a minimum of three for any boat in excess of 30. This allows one TruPlug for a thruhull/hose failure and provides spares for other holes or to cut in the event of a hull impact breach.
The TruPlug is constructed of proprietary special purpose foam and coated with a flexible sealer adding strength and color.
