"Ok, they are faily light and they look nice, but that is where the positives end. They are a nightmare to tighten, the non lever end is too small to get a grip on undless you have square hard fingers and they will come loose. They have also impossibly developed a squeak which is as annoying as heck. don't buy them."
Pros: Attractive
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Poor Fit, Limited Color Choices

How easy to take on/off?

I take my front wheel off to get my bike in the back of my car, hence I'd have to take the guard off to fit it in my car too, how easy is it to whip on/off?

Any recommendations for another product if this one is unsuitable?

Easy, but don't think they would tolerate this too often, if going to be frequently removing, wouldn't recommend, will wear out.

Does it fill the puncture hole

This may be a stupid question: but do you put a new inner tube in or mend the puncture first?

Or does this product somehow seal a puncture hole at the same time?

You will need to mend the puncture, this does not have a sealent
