Sketchy Lifehack: How to Fix a Tire When You Have None of the Proper Equipment

Need to patch a flat tire? This mechanic in the Philippines does not have a modern shop by the standards of a developed nation. But he will get you on the road again.

After pulling out the nail, the mechanic builds a fire in a can. Then he puts a piece of rubber beneath the can and mashes the can inside the tire with a clamp. The heat melts the rubber enough so that it seals the hole.

Now it's time to refill the tire. I'm not sure what the truck tire is for. Perhaps he's siphoning it for compressed air. In either event, he's able to refill the tire and get the van moving again.
