I figure it's about time I put together an emergency roadside toolkit, but seeing as I've never done any roadside repairs, I dunno which tools I'm most likely to need. Could you guys give me some pointers?
:coffeescreen:Duct tape and a credit card.
That's quite a bit of stuff. How much space does it all take up?I carry a 1/2" - 9/16" wrenches, an assortment package of Allen and torx wrenches, a screwdriver with switchable flat and Philips, some wire, fuses, needle nose pliers with cutter and some duct tape. It's all emergency repairs so anything that would normally need electrical tape the duct tape will work just fine for and that stuff just comes in so handy to hold just about anything on until you can fix it properly. Everything is English but can be switched to metric easily. I have considered adding a adjustable wrench and remove the others and that would give me a hammer too and we all know you can't work on anything without a hammer. Problem is an adjustable won't fit in some places.
Got that! They'll even pay for my hotel if I'm far away from home.And a cell phone with the insurance company number to arrange a tow.
Except for the duct tape it all lays flat in the bottom of a saddle bag so I don't really even notice. It's in a zippered case about 8x6x2 inches. Duct tape is smashed flat too in case you are wondering. And only a part roll. It just gets stuff where ever.:coffeescreen:
