Over a year in the making, Spare Me, the 5-1 Rescue Tool was created out of the need for a simple single source item that can easily store in your car and provide numerous benefits.  I have changed hundreds of tires in my lifetime and never enjoyed the task of lifting the tire up on the hub.  Spare Me simplifies that task and prevents potential injury due to strain.  Living in snow country I especially like the scraper and traction feature of Spare Me.  The goal is to raise $25,000 to cover the cost of mold-making, packaging and 2,000 units.  There are millions of cars in the US and many of those car drivers live in snow country.  My goal is to have each and every car outfitted with the Spare Me tool to rescue those drivers in need of assistance.  Be a "PART OF IT" and reserve your "Spare Me Rescue Tool" today!

Key Points:  253 million vehicles on the road, 110 million licensed drivers, 220 million flat tires/yr and the average person experiences 5 flat tires in their lifetime.

Risks and challenges

Spare Me will be produced from a very durable (heat and cold) resin called GF Nylon in Spokane, WA. Everything is in place i.e. packaging, (Boxmaker Company) artwork, (WM Reed & Assoc.) retail web site, Amazon) retail store outlets (6 to start), Motion Auto Parts) the mold designs, (Dana-Saad Inc.) UPC code and provisional patent status. The only thing preventing production are the funds to make the molds and produce a beginning inventory and of course your product demand.

FAQ

  • Spare Me is made from a very durable plastic resin referred to as GF Nylon, Product will perform well under adverse weather conditions such as extreme cold or heat. Like any tool, always keep the product clean and stored appropriately i.e. under your car seat or in the trunk of your car.

    Last updated:
  • The Spare Me tool performs best when you elevate the tire 2-3 inches off of the ground. The row of jagged teeth at the lift point keep the tire steady for ease in maneuvering the tire onto the hub.

    Last updated:
  • No. When you're stuck and your tire is spinning without traction, it is one side or the other that is spinning thanks to your differential. Clear the area around the tire of snow, ice , mud, debris etc. using your tool as a shovel then place Spare Me firmly against the tire on the side of the tire that you intend on going i.e. forward (then on the frontside of the tire) or backward (on backside of the tire). Get in the car and gently press on the accelerator. You'll be out lickity-split!
