Default that long, skinny tip included with tire glue?

What is this long flexible tube good for? Does it offer an advantage when glueing?

It allows for a little cleaner application of the glue and you can apply it a little deeper into the bead area.
I use to think it was crazy and now I love using them.

Tube uses less glue, neater and cleaner. I cut my tube and get three uses out of it. If you need more tube hit your menards store, they have it.

Yeah use it, it works. I cut off a small piece and use, you don't need the whole thing

I thought I knew the menards like the back of my hand...LOL. where in the store do you find that micro tubing?


and yes, the tubing is a godsend to making a sloppy free glue job.
