Some of us keep utterly nothing in our car trunks, while others have enough stuff in there to live in their cars for a month. Somewhere in between is the suggestion items below we think every car owner should forever have on hand.
You can purchase a complete emergency safety kit, but make sure it has a flashlight, first aid kit, booster cable, and many other items. You can make your own which could be more satisfying since you most likely have the necessary items in your home. It’s not all about safety or emergency.
A spare tire in good condition along with a tire iron and tire jack. Without them or a person to come and help you, your spare tire is useless. Another thing is to keep the number to AAA or a tow truck in your list of contacts on your cell. You never know when you’re going to need it. It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. If your wheels necessitate a special security key, make certain that’s always in your car as well.
Tire sealer and inflater, such as Fix-a-Flat, which can close up a leak just enough so you can get to the nearest auto shop.
Jumper cables since a dead battery can occur at any time on any given day. You can also pack an emergency battery booster so you don’t have to depend on a Good Samaritan driving along.
Tire pressure gauge and as a matter of fact, checking your tire pressure on a regular basis can increase fuel economy, improve handling, encourage tire longevity, and even save lives.
