With the start of the new year, we often try to get all of our ducks in a row. One resolution you can add to your list should be stocking your car with helpful tools. This list includes the tools that can save you in emergency situations. For further preparation of your vehicle, check out the essential items and important documents to always keep in your car.  

5 Tools You Should Always Carry in Your Car: 

  1. Hammer of Life. These handy little hammers can save your life! The blade is used to cut a seatbelt if stuck after a wreck, and the metal hammers can break a window if the door is jammed closed. It’s important to keep this tool in all of your vehicles!   
  1. Jumper Cables. In case of your, or some else’s, battery dying, jumper cables can be used to restart a vehicle. Using jumper cables is a temporary solution to a dead battery but can be vital in a situation of need. 
  1.  Socket and Screwdriver Set. Many car issues can be fixed by tightening a loose screw. Having a socket and screwdriver set will set you up for a multitude of quick fixes.  
  1. Fix-a-Flat. Fix-a-Flat is a handy thing when you pop a tire. It doesn’t help with blowouts but can solve smaller pops. Tires can hold these repairs for up to 3 days before a professional fix is needed. 
  1. Necessary Fluids. There are several important fluids that keep your vehicle up and running. The list consists of:
