Air Up # 1 & 2

Flo Max & Flo Max Pro air compressors

Off -road travel can be tough on tyres, and many terrains are best navigated with lower tyre pressures than you would run on the road. Once you are ready to hit the bitumen for the trip home or into town, you need to be able to re-inflate your tyres to ensure safe and proper handling of the vehicle. The Flo Max 72 litre/ minute compressor, or its bigger brother, the Flo Max Pro with a capacity of 160 litre/minute, will be just right for the job.

Flo Max 72L/Min 12V: R2 095
Flo Max PRO 160L/Min 12V: R3 150
LED Headlamp: R295
LED Tent Light: R110

Magic Wand

Trappers Spider Catcher

Arachnophobes and those not so fond of bugs will welcome this clever critter-catcher that can scoop up everything from a dainty Daddy Long Legs to a monster Wolf spider and a few others inbetween. A long handle keeps you at a safe 65cm distance while you press the trigger to release the bristles, which retract to safely and gently trap the offending bug which can then be deposited in a safe place away from the hysteria. It’ll also sweep up bugs, moths, ants and other insects you’d prefer to be somewhere else.

Under Pressure

Tireguard Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

A tyre pressure monitoring system will save time every day, save a tyre once in a while and maybe one day save a life, says Abraham Kruger, who imports the JET-400C monitoring system, and sells them direct. The sensors (which screw directly onto the tyre valve stem) are small, at 20mm diameter, and have a signal range of 30 metres, reaching the vehicle’s 12V monitor which is programmed to provide a warning when any of the tyres falls outside a set pressure range. The Tireguard works on motorcycles, cars, 4x4s, trailers of all descriptions, trucks, agricultural and construction machinery, even aircraft. Systems are delivered free in Centurion, or via Aramex Express countrywide to a street address for an additional R100.

Price: R2 250 (six-sensor system) | R1850 (four-sensor system)
