It might be hard to stay safe while out driving, but there are some great tools that can give you an advantage. You don’t need a whole lot of room in your car to have safety at your fingertips, either. Following are some great tools that you should think about keeping in your car at all times.
If you don’t have a complete automotive tool set in your car, you can still have access to the tools that might be useful, should you break down. A handy little multi-tool that has a series of interchangeable attachments can be purchased for a relatively low price. This is also something that is easy to keep in your glove box, so that you don’t have to give up precious trunk space.
These are small tools, but they could really save your life one day. These tools can be used to cut through seat belts that have become stuck over passengers. They can also be used to break windows of a car, should that be necessary for a quick escape. The important this about keeping one of these tools is making sure that you can easily get at it, should you become involved in an accident. There’s no point keeping it locked away in the glove box or trunk.
These have a few different names, but they are basically lengths of flat, heavy-duty material that can be attached to your vehicle, and another vehicle. They are not used for towing, but to get your car out of mud, sand, or snow. As the other car pulls away, the recovery strap will stretch, and then “snap” back, and yank your car free.
