Are you Tyred-Out ?Written by Robin Piggott

8.Plank of Wood … WHAT?? ….. Many years ago, in teeth of a howling gale, I suffered a puncture on a country road late at night and due to non- stop rain that had been pouring down for several days, grass verge and edge of road were so soft, that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t raise car sufficiently to get spare wheel on! It was too dangerous and too narrow to move car into middle of road to get a better support for Jack .The close proximity of a bend made it even more hazardous .In desperation, and soaking wet, I searched around and eventually borrowed a large flat stone from a nearby wall, to spread weight and support jack while wheel was changed. Ever since then I have carried a short plank,12 inches long and 1 inch thick and have never had a problem since .This is origin of phrase as thick as two short planks! We have them on special offer this month @ €29.99for pair! Another observation for those of you who might have a new tarmac driveway at your home, don’t attempt to jack your car up without using your plank or you will create a nice hole in your Drive! 9.Spare wheel nuts …….If you have bought a new set of alloy wheels then it is likely that they will be held on with longer than average wheel nuts .Since it is unusual to buy five alloy wheels then following a puncture you will be using standard spare wheel to replace punctured one. You will need to ensure that you have in your emergency kit standard nuts to fix this in place while you get puncture repaired and Alloy wheel back on car. 10.Small Penknife…..if you are using standard factory- issue steel wheels with Plastic Hub Caps, they will be fastened to rim with cable ties, to keep them from disappearing into hedge after hitting a bump or pothole. . These are a little difficult to remove without a blade so a penknife or Stanley knife is very useful in cutting cable tie before getting access to wheel nuts. Its useful also to use two ties since they sometimes break if scraped, leaving you with a missing hub cap. Original Hub Caps are expensive to replace so it is worth this little effort. 11.Towel……. An old towel and some hand cleanser are very useful to enable you to clean up after changing a wheel, particularly if you are miles from anywhere and heading for an Interview or lunch date. Punctures rarely happen at home where you have all your mod. cons. at your disposal. Apart from this, mucky or greasy hands will make your steering wheel slippery and dangerous! Some kitchen roll and spare valve caps are a useful addition also to your in-boot-kit.
