Winter Car Kits: Essential Tools to Include

Among the most essential components of effective winter car kits are the tools that these kits include, as having the right tools on hand during a wintertime breakdown can be critical to getting your vehicle up and running as soon as possible. In particular, some of the tools that you likely want to add to winter car kits include (but are by no means limited to):

  • Tools to fix vehicles – When vehicles break down for more minor reasons, having the appropriate equipment on hand can help get the necessary repair(s) completed (and you back on the road) as quickly as possible. To this end, some tools you should strongly consider including in winter car kits include:
    • Jumper cables
    • Duct tape
    • A hammer and screwdriver
    • Rope
  • Tools to get vehicles out of the snow – If you will be driving in areas prone to snowfall, then make sure you have the tools you need in case your car ends up getting stuck in the snow. Such items can include:
    • An ice scraper
    • A small shovel
    • Kitty litter or a bag of sand (to provide some extra traction if necessary)
    • Tow chains and/or tire chains
