Are you winter ready?

Draper Tools has got the tools you need to stay safe on the roads during the colder months, including snow shovels, tyre pressure gauges, tyre tread depth gauges, warning triangles, battery chargers and much more. At this time of year it’s always best to be prepared and keep a few essentials in your car.

Snowstorms don’t just happen overnight, you could find yourself snowed in after a long day at work or even find your route home blocked by snow. In the colder months it’s always a good idea to keep a shovel handy in the car.

This Draper Tools Folding Steel Shovel (51002) is ideal for the boot of the car. Made with a carbon steel serrated blade and a tubular steel handle, it’s powder coated to prevent corrosion and folds away into a handy compact pouch.

When battery issues prevent your car from starting it can be a real pain, especially in winter. Thankfully, there is an easy way to boost your battery and get the car going again. Helping to prevent battery problems and bring low batteries back to life is the Draper 6/12V Intelligent Battery Charger (33861).

It’s ideal for standard car and motorcycle batteries. It features high- tech microprocessor-controlled charging and offers an efficient charge rate specific for 6 and 12v batteries. Other useful features include polarity inversion protection and thermal overload protection.

Pay extra attention to your tyres at this time of year and make sure they’re at the correct pressure to keep you safe on the roads. This handheld Draper Tools Tyre Pressure Gauge (69923) comes in a range of colours and is ideal to keep in the car.

Should your tyres need some inflation, the high performance D20 Air Inflator (55767) will get the job done quickly. It’s fitted with a preset PSI, KPA and BAR LCD display, tyre valve connectors and two inflation nozzles and an LED worklight too – perfect for the darker evenings.

Don’t forget to check your tread depth either; with the Draper Tools Tyre Tread Depth Gauge (27298) it’s quick and easy to get an accurate measurement.

With the darker months upon us it’s essential to have a torch in the car. Draper Tools has a wide range of torches to help you out in an emergency.

The Expert CREE 1W LED Waterproof Torch (51751) is great torch to keep handy, it delivers a 60 lumen strong white 50M beam of light. Its robust ABS plastic, IP66 case provides waterproof and shock-proofing capabilities too, making it an incredibly durable torch for any situation.

Breaking down is serious at any time of year but in the dark can be very dangerous, especially if you’re on a bend or out in a rural area without street lights.

The Draper Tools Warning Triangle (92442), does exactly as the name suggests and will alert unsuspecting traffic to your presence, warning them to slow down. In a breakdown situation it’s often safest to wait outside your car but you still need to make sure you’re seen the dark, so keep a high visibility waistjacket in your car for emergencies.
