DIY Auto Safety Kit
Surprisingly, many people do not have any sort of safety kit in their car, often relying solely on roadside assist. Roadside assist is a wonderful service, however, there are so many situations a car kit is all one needs – as I’ve discovered in my own travels. There is nothing worse than having an issue with your car in a dark, isolated area that has no cell service or that could be easily remedied if the proper tools were available.
The auto safety kit we’re giving away is a good start but should be added to. What I’m about to suggest may seem a touch extreme but could be a life saver (I’m thinking about all those people stranded on the Coquihalla overnight this past winter). Here’s a quick DIY kit list:
- 3.6 metre jumper cables Four 15-minute road flares
- Two quarts of motor oil
- 3 litres of antifreeze
- First-aid kit (equipped with bandages, gauze, gloves, adhesive tape, antiseptic wipes, instant ice and heat packs, scissors and a pain reliever)
- Flashlight and extra batteries
- Extra fuses
- Flat head screwdriver
- Philips head screwdriver
- Vice grips
- Adjustable wrench
- Tire inflator
- Tire pressure gauge
- Rags/paper towels
- Duct tape
- Spray bottle containing washer fluid
- Ice scraper
- S.O.S. banner
- Non-perishable energy bars
- Bottled water
