The UFIXIT Tyre Ratchet is an essential tool for anyone on the roads today. Vehicle owners will never be stranded on the side of the road because they are unable to remove the wheel nuts on their vehicle. They are usually unable to remove their wheel nuts because when maintenance is done on the vehicle the wheel nuts are tightened up with an impact wrench (rattle gun). The use of these powerful tools generally tightens the wheel nut to extreme tensions. So when using a standard tyre iron it is almost impossible to loosen these nuts. It can also be due to a number of other factors like; general wear and tear, not changing tyres for long periods, off road driving and wheel nuts on boat trailers seizing due to being immersed in salt water.
Due to the extreme ease of use it is suitable for males and females of any age and any physical ability. (We have had a 10 year old boy and up to a 75 year old lady undo the tightest of wheel nuts simply and easily. It is also suitable for people in wheel chairs as they aren’t having to applying downward pressure to loosen the wheel nuts, by pulling up on the ratchet they are easily able to loosen the wheel nuts without having to leave their chair.
The Ufixit Tyre Ratchet is made from Vanadium Steel for superior strength and durability. We also offer a lifetime full replacement guarantee. Suitable for travellers and 4wd drivers, anyone who owns a vehicle, caravan or any type of trailer.
This is a "must have” for your tool box when on the road.
