Handy Gear From ARB

Speedy Seal Tyre Puncture Kit

The don’t-go-bush-without-one Speedy Seal tyre puncture repair kit is invaluable to 4WD enthusiasts.

The entire kit comprises of tyre gauge, spring steel insertion needle, lubricant to facilitate insertion, valve accessories, reamer tool, 30 self sealing vulcanizing repair cords, plus Allen keys, which all fit neatly into a strong but compact carry case.

The instructions with the kit are concise and easy to follow. Once the site of the puncture is noted the kit’s strong hand reamer will clean out the puncture, separating any steel belts within the tyre. A lubricated cord (a plug) is pushed into the hole made by the reamer by the kits special insertion tool. On withdrawal of the tool, the self vulcanizing cord remains in the hole to repair the leak.

On a trip to the back of Glen Lyon dam I got two punctures along way from the bitumen. Without the Speedy Seal kit under the passenger’s seat we would have been in a very awkward situation. For a modest outlay these kits provide great peace of mind when offroading.

E-Z tyre deflator tool

It is important to deflate tyres in certain driving conditions, such as running up the beach, or maybe travelling over very hard and rocky terrain, and for optimum results tyres need to be deflated accurately and quickly. This is where the E-Z tyre deflator comes into the picture.

The E-Z tyre deflator unit thread onto and then extract the valve core. By activation of the large metal slide valve on the tool, air can be allowed to escape quickly to get tyres down to the required pressure. A large pressure gauge dial on the tool keeps the user informed as to how things are going.

The E-Z deflator is a lot more precise than some random narrow object, such as a match, thrust into the valve. Anything lodged in that valve and unable to be withdrawn can mean big trouble as the tyre will continue to deflate.

The kit also comes in a quality carry bag.

ARB Chairs

Camping chairs are part of any camp set up and ARB provide some very well-made portable chairs that will provide comfy seating for virtually any camping or travel situation.

Designated as the ARB Sport Chair these heavy-duty alloy folding chairs are obviously built to last. They are solid, made from quality material with long life assured and fold flat for storage when not in use. I found sitting in one very comfortable due to the ample back support plus wide arm rest at just the right height.

These Sport chairs are a life long investment for the camper or traveller, or for virtually any situation.

ARB Adventure Light

This pair of portable LED or fluorescent lights are designated as 4X4 Adventure lights for good reason: They are well finished, strong as a brick, and compact.

A 12V power source will see one in operation via a lighter socket connection within the vehicle or via an alligator clamp adaptor direct to the car battery. Output from both lights is excellent with power draw being around 1A or less.

Both styles of light come with 5m power leads with switch and dual hanging points (middle and end) for ease of set up around camp or the car. A neat metal clip in the kit will connect a light to a tent pole or other surface with ease for just a little more convenience.

Overall, these are very handy lights for virtually any camping or travel situation and offer the owner choice of LED or standard fluorescent lighting.
