There’s no doubt that this Thumbs Up Tyre Repair Kit is one of those products that every new car should come with as standard.

In fact, surely everyone else should have one of these stashed away in their glovebox, too. It could save you a whole load of hassle.

This top-notch little kit comes with all the tools needed to repair small punctures in an emergency, but the best bit has to be the special inflator that uses compressed air cylinders, and means you don’t have to carry a bulky compressor or, even worse, a foot pump.

Smaller, lighter and quicker to sort out than a spare wheel, what’s not to love about that? One-nil to the gadget freaks.

Price £30
