Crucial Steps for Safely Changing a Flat

A flat generally occurs when you least expect it and often times it occurs at the most inconvenient moment. There are a few steps you should take in order to keep you safe.

Always choose to change your flat in a safe and secure area such as a well-lit parking lot at a grocery store or shopping mall. It is also crucial to your safety that you do not change your flat on a hill, and you should never change a flat on grass or dirt. A parking lot will give you a solid foundation.

Before you begin, use a wheel block as a safety precaution behind the wheels remaining on the ground before lifting the car with a jack. Additionally, be sure to unpack each item you need prior to changing the flat.
