Fix-A-Flat Ultimate 1-Step Flat Tire Repair Kit
The Fix-A-Flat Ultimate 1-Step brings new-car technology to every car on the road. No more waiting for a tow truck or bothering with a jack and spare. Simply connect the Fix-A-Flat Ultimate 1-Step and in seven minutes you are back on the road. At the push of a button, environmentally friendly SafeSeal tire sealant and air are sent into the flat tire, repairing and re-inflating the tire in one simple step. The Fix-A-Flat Ultimate 1-Step Flat Tire Repair Kit is a robust solution designed to last up to 500 miles and provides 100 percent inflation to the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure using the built-in tire gauge. The powerful 12-volt tire inflator can also be used without the sealant to top off a low tire any time, or to air up an inflatable, sports ball, bicycle or anything that requires air. A sealant refill is available, which means the Fix-A-Flat Ultimate 1-Step is the last spare tire you will ever need. Price $29.95
