Traveling on the Road this Thanksgiving? Don’t Get Stranded with a Flat Tire

32:1 Geared Lug Wrench

  • Remove even air-tool tightened lug nuts easily
  • Unique design increases leverage
  • More stable than standard ratchets
  • Great as a replacement for a lost or damaged factory wrench

Changing tires has just gotten easier — even for the most mechanically challenged person! Unlike ratchets, which can slip off lug nuts and round the edges, this Geared Lug Wrench “holds” two lug nuts at once, securing it more firmly and providing increased leverage.

The gearing of the Lug Wrench enables the average motorist to loosen lug nuts easily, even if your mechanic tightened them with an air-powered impact wrench! This Lug Wrench is small enough to fit in any vehicle, so you can change the flat tire yourself without the added hassle and expense of a tow truck!

Don’t be that person!

The Geared Lug Wrench comes with 17, 19, and 21mm sockets, which also fit 11/16″, ¾”, and 13/16″ lug nuts (uses standard ½”-drive sockets). Just slip the Lug Wrench with the correct socket over a lug nut, and place the leverage socket on another lug nut on the same wheel. Turn the crank on the wrench clockwise, and the lug nuts will loosen easily! The 32:1 gearing means that it only takes 2.6 ft./lbs. of pressure to loosen a lug nut torqued at 85 ft./lbs! Replace the wheel, and reverse the action of the wrench to securely tighten the lug bolts.

Conduct Proper Fall Maintenance Before the Change of the Season

November 9, 2011 Leave a comment

During the Fall season we see leaves changing into beautiful colors, and we automatically start thinking of the upcoming Holidays. But we tend to forget that our home needs to be given some attention during this change of weather. With the first day of Winter a little over a month away, make sure you conduct the proper Fall maintenance necessary to keep your home intact. Check out the following 10 tips to creating a safer home provided by The Weather Channel.

1. Check your heating system including filters, pilot lights and burners. Have the system serviced by a qualified professional. Cleaning and servicing now can save you money later. Learn steps to boost your furnace’s efficiency and how to replace your furnace filter.

2. Clean and vacuum dust from vents, baseboard heaters and cold-air returns. Dust build-up in ducts is a major cause of indoor pollutants and can increase incidences of cold-weather illnesses. Consider hiring a pro to clean hard-to-reach ductwork.

3. Paint interior rooms while it’s still warm enough to leave windows open. Ditto for shampooing or replacing carpets. Give a fresh start to your interiors just in time for fall and winter parties and family gatherings. Learn painting steps to success — how to choose the right paint, how to solve paint problems and more.

4. Caulk exterior joints around windows and doors. Caulking helps keep your house weather-tight and lowers heating and cooling bills. It can also help keep insects and other “critters” out of your house. When you caulk before painting, it eliminates edges where the paint may start to peel.

5. Protect your home from uninvited critters. As urban limits expand, more and more homeowners have to contend with wildlife in their yards and houses. Installing grates, securing trash containers, even humane traps may help.

7.It’s time to think about the condition of your roof. Be proactive and prevent emergency — and expensive –repairs. Find out about common trouble spots and how to locate a leak from inside.

8. Next to checking your roof, insulating your home is one of the most important tasks to accomplish before the onslaught of winter. Insulation goes beyond simple weatherstripping and caulking (see #4) and may be a job for professionals. The money and energy you’ll save will make the job worth it.

9. You insulate and weatherstrip and think that you have your home all sealed up for winter. But there are some inconspicuous spots through which heat can escape. Learn how to seal these gaps too.

10. Inspect and clean your storm windows to get them ready for installation. Storm windows can help you save energy during the cold months and are significantly less expensive than putting in new double- or triple-glazed windows.
