All car enthusiasts are entitled to certain inalienable rights, and among those unspoken rules is the right to be safe at all times. I’m sure you’ve seen ( and hopefully procured ) all manner of road safety kits during your automotive travels, so I won’t waste your time rambling on about how important they are for your well being. While most of these kits contain medical gauze and jumper cables, they lack the multi-purposefulness required to handle ‘every-day-emergencies’ that we encounter constantly. I’ve always thought it was important to be prepared for any problem – big or small – and if your auto safety kit can’t rescue you from a simple problem, how good can it really be?
When I saw the Automotive Safety Kit, I was surprised to see it came in a sleek, glove box-sized, zippered case, as many of the safety kits I deal with are bulky and cumbersome things which must be stored in the trunk. Opening it was like looking into a surgeon’s black briefcase! The tools contained within are attractive chrome instruments that are cool to the touch and encased in form-fitting foam backing. The kit includes a Digital Tire Gauge, a Flashlight and a pair of Multi-Function Pliers. Between the three of them, there are no on-the-road problems they can’t handle! Also, stitched into the cover is a small notebook pocket and transparent card holder, perfect for storing identification, credit cards or emergency numbers.
Since owning this new kit, I have used the multi-function pliers to tighten a loosened battery that was giving me a hard time and the flashlight was useful for locating the keyhole on my C6 during the night hours. Small emergencies aside, I love the tread depth indicator on the digital tire gauge. Driving on balding tires is a dangerous game I don’t plan on playing, and the depth indicator will tell you whether it is time to race or replace. With an array of purposeful traits at its disposal, this is the perfect addition to your automotive safety team.
