Hickory Stick Tire Thumper

I love my Hickory Stick Tire Thumper. If you drive a large truck this is a must have. Driving with flat or underinflated tire can cause an accident. It has a nice weight in my hand and is incredibly durable. That’s good as its job is to basically hit stuff.

The good news is that this Tire Thumper really excels at its primary task. It hits things and if I hit something with it that isn’t a tire, its taking serious damage. Of course I just have them to check my tires, but its good to have a backup if bad things happen.

A disaster or the Zombie Apocalypse could start at any time. If I’m on the road when that happens, having this Tire Thumper gives me the ability to defend myself. Because it is a legit tool, no one blinks if they see one in my garage, vehicles, or shed. Which makes them easy to camouflage and hide them in plain sight.

If anyone does see it and comments, I just tell them its true purpose. I have it to check my tires. Of course the reason these Hickory Stick Tire Thumpers is survival. When it comes to keeping self defense weapons close at hand, this is a key piece of gear. I spend a lot of time in my vehicle, so having this Tire Thumper nearby makes me feel more confident I can handle things if I need to.

Hickory Stick Tire Thumper Scoring

This Tire Thumper scores a 509/1000 and can have a high impact on your survival. The fact that it is easy to store easily in your vehicle earns it points. It is an excellent piece of hidden survival gear. The flip side is that it does not have a huge amount of reach, which does cost it some points and keeps it from being higher on the survival scale.
