Ever since Henry Ford made the first Model T, a car has been more than just a way to get around. It’s been a rite of passage. A form of self-expression. A private piece of paradise between a loud house and a crowded office. Your car takes care of you, and you need to be ready to take care of it, too.

So whether you can replace a transmission at the drop of a hat or a flat tire feels like the end of the world for you, listen up: Tacklife’s line of jump starters and accessories are reliable enough for the most seasoned pro, and intuitive enough for those of us with cars whose owner’s manuals might as well be written in Latin. And today only, Amazon’s offering this array of accessories for up to 50 percent off.

Most don’t appreciate the importance of tire pressure; a lot of folks see tires as only “flat” or “not flat.” But flat tires can be a real gas guzzler, and besides, who wants to spend big bucks at a car mechanic doing something that you can do in your own garage?

The Tacklife M2 Tire Inflator makes it super easy to check and maintain proper tire pressure. The HD LCD screen and digital gauge mean no more having to eyeball that little white stick (remember those?), and its inflating rate of 1.43CFM can inflate a flat tire in minutes. You can even use it on bikes.

"This is a great little compressor," one shopper noted, "I like how compact it is but the weight of it makes it feel like it’s pretty heavy duty. The reason that I bought this over some others is the fact that has has a detachable quick connect for the tire making it easy to use and inflate other stuff around my shop."
