TruPlug is a tapered circular cone shaped plug made of foam that is a solid,
spongy cellular material which is coated with a flexible sealer adding
strength and color. TruPlug is used as a temporary or emergency plug in
boating applications where water would enter a circular, oval, or irregular
hole caused by emergency maintenance or hull breach due to impact.
TruPlug is compressed by hand and inserted into the hole stopping or
reducing the inward flow of water as the foam returns to its original shape.
TruPlug’s versatility allows it to be compressed and fit into a variety of
shapes including elongated and oval breaches. TruPlug can be inserted
into the ends of broken pipes or hoses by twist compressing before
TruPlug is not guaranteed to stop all water leaks and is designed to be used
alone or in conjunction with other emergency equipment including bilge
pumps. TruPlug should be included with your damage control kit and kept
with your vessel.
TruPlug has been successfully tested in actual and simulated breach
scenarios including the pressure and volume generated by
a two inch through hull fitting at 7 feet below the water line.
