How My Wife Saved Us Thousands With A Simple Emergency Kit

PLUS: Learn how I made sure to never be in this situation again

Inflate-R pumps up an emergency flat tire.

One of the main causes of stress for car owners is their tire pressure.

I’ll be honest, I’ve driven a car my whole life and I’ve never felt comfortable inflating or checking my tires. I always feel like I’m doing it wrong.

I’m quite the handyman, but I often forget to check the tires before heading out on a long trip.

My wife had to stay home for work, but the kids and I were going for a weekend getaway!

After coordinating the two rascals and packing everything, I just wanted to hit the road. The last thing on my mind was inspecting the car.

It was about 3 months ago that we left for our nice vacation. Living in Colorado, we were hoping to go somewhere warm!

The trip was going as usual: I was driving, the kids buried in their games, the weather was fine — we just couldn’t wait to be laying by a pool! Lily was so excited about wearing her new arm floaties.

About an hour in we hit one of these signs and none of us worried because the tank was full.

Sign saying

Around 40 miles after the sign, it happened. I looked at the kids and said:

“The car feels weird... I think our tire is flat”

I froze, remembering the sign from earlier. And the car didn’t have a spare! The panic began.

I pulled aside and took a look at the tire. Sure enough, it was flat. And with a puncture hole!

I started figuring out what we should do... Driving seemed way too risky. And I just canceled our AAA since we hadn't used it in years!

I bit the bullet and decided to call a tow truck. With the kids occupied by their games, I glanced at my phone to make the call.

Of course, my battery was at 8%

Stress set in.

I had enough power to make one call. I had no phone charger to use in the car and no idea which tow company to contact. And what if they said they didn’t have anyone to send? I couldn’t waste my one call.

So I did what every husband would do… I called my wife.

“Hun, the kids are starting to get antsy. We have no spare tire. I have no clue which towing company to call. And my phone is about to die. Help me!” I yelped.

She giggled and said, “Check the small container in the trunk. There’s an emergency kit I put in there last week. You should be fine.”

Just as I was about to ask her questions, my phone cut out. I peered at the black screen and my reflection peered back.

I rushed to the trunk and ripped open the Tupperware bin. There were three items. Some black and sleek device, the size of a water bottle sat there. It was nestled beside a tire repair kit. I picked up the bottle-shaped device and right under it was another device that looked phone-shaped.

I sat on the bumper and read through the instructions.

The water bottle thingy was a compact air pump. And the phone thingy was a solar-powered powerbank, a phone charger. I couldn’t believe my luck.

The solar-powered charger, Voltzy, charging a phone.

I connected my phone to the rectangular device with solar panels on its front. Right away, my phone was charging. I smiled, thinking of my wife’s foresight. How did she always know?

I opened the tire repair kit and located the hole on my tire, then used the rasp tool to rough it up. I grabbed the pull needle and thread a repair string through. I squeezed out rubber cement onto the string and pushed the tool into our tire. Quickly, I ripped the tool back out, leaving the string in the tire’s hole. A few minutes later I sliced off the excess string.

Next, I got out the air pump’s tire connection and hooked it up. It read out our pressure 一 our tire was at a measly 14 PSI. I adjusted the pressure and pressed start.

I sat there in disbelief. This gadget was the size of my hand… It’s not like it was a compressed gas machine or anything. While I trust my wife, I honestly thought there was no way this little thing could inflate a dead tire, especially with the extra weight of our packed bags.

Inflate-R, a compact and portable air pump, inflates a flat tire.

But sure enough, the tire slowly rose, lifting off the ground. 8 minutes later, our tire was pumped back up.

My kids asked for an update. I sat down in the driver’s seat, turned around and looked at them. “We’re good to go — thanks to your Mom! Buckle up you two.”

When we arrived at the beach, I called my wife back and thanked her. The solar powerbank managed to bring my phone up to 85% during the trip. I just left it on the dashboard connected to my phone!

After hanging up, I decided to research the two devices and repair kit.

I couldn’t believe how well all three worked. The three of them saved my day. And saved my wallet. Imagine spending money on the tow-truck, cab, mechanic work, a new tire and who knows what else? All while being stranded in the middle of nowhere!

So, I bet you’re probably wondering…

What Was in That Emergency Kit?

1. Premium Tire Puncture Kit

The ideal tire repair kit with enough supplies for five punctures.

 

2. InflateR

A compact and portable air pump capable of inflating up to 150 PSI.

 

3. Voltzy

A portable solar powerbank that charges up to two devices.

Inflate-R's Premium Tire Puncture Kit

The Premium Tire Puncture Kit

Did you know the average American experiences 5 tire punctures in their lifetime?

Built to make tire repair easy and speedy, The Premium Tire Puncture Kit includes a rasp tool, pull needle, repair string, rubber cement, a knife and pouch. To repair your puncture, take out the object from your tire. Then grab the rasp tool, insert it into the tire and roughen up the hole.

Next, take a repair string and thread it halfway into the pull needle. Add some rubber cement onto the string and insert the pull needle into the hole. Quickly pull the needle tool back out. The string should be left in the hole for 5 minutes. Once it's dried, use the knife to cut off any excess string. That’s it!

With the Puncture Kit you can repair your own tire in under 10 minutes without any mechanical training. I even taught the kid’s Grandma how to use it after our trip. And if she can repair a tire, so can you!

Each Puncture Kit comes with 5 repair strings, so you’ll be covered for every one of your flats.

Small, compact and completely wireless, InflateR is the portable pump we’ve all needed.

It comes with a nozzle that plugs into the top of the device and into your tire. The moment you plug it in, your current PSI will appear on the LCD screen. The screen is bright enough to use any time, even at night.

All you do is set your desired PSI, hit start and InflateR instantly drives air into your tire. Once completed, the device automatically turns off. Then you’re on your way!

Since InflateR is made for all emergencies, it also doubles as a power bank and flashlight! That way you can charge your phone and seek out help in the dark.
