The £2.99 kit that could save a holiday

I wish I’d seen this tiny kit before our last holiday. We were on a barge cruise through the Camargue, from Sète to Arles, when not one, but two fellow passengers found themselves in trouble on the same day when their glasses came apart because the screw had fallen out of a hinge and was lost. Pins and Sellotape really didn’t work. Rescue finally came through our lovely guide, Peggy, who heard about the problem the next day and during a subsequent coach excursion organised a diversion to an optician who was able to do repairs on the spot. We were lucky – in another country and with no Peggy to help, it might have been very different, especially if driving was involved. So in future, a SnapIt kit will now be packed along with essentials such as sun cream and insect repellent.
The kit contains a screwdriver and five screws in various sizes. There’s a useful video at
It’s available from Maplins, Wilkinsons, QVC and through Centurion Hardware for around £2.99.
