Whether you're planning on traveling for an extended period of time or being away from home for a few days, it pays to be prepared. A wise idea for when you're leaving the comforts of home, is to take a wheelchair repair kit with you. A wheelchair repair kit is a simple solution you can create yourself with items around the house or an easy purchase from the local store. Pack a tire-changing kit, a screwdriver, an adjustable wrench and a pair of pliers. Those items are all you need, in case you have problems with your wheels, need to change a tire, or want to clean out your casters.
