Must have summer essentials

Looking for the perfect summer kit for your car, home, or for getting outdoors? Autoparts has all the essentials to keep your summer plans at full speed.

Autoparts’ range of thousands of tools, parts and accessories can help you have a great summer, and we’ve chosen a few key items from our range to add to your inventory, especially if you’re off camping, or having a stay-at-home summer.

3-piece grey folding bistro set
From Streetwize, this essential garden combination is perfect for a patio, brilliant on a balcony, marvellous in a marquee, or awesome in an awning.

Family members or old pals can sit and chill out on a day of nice weather and take in the fresh air, with plenty of space for food, drink and a magazine or book to keep at hand for days enjoying your own company, thanks to the table’s 50cm diameter.

Enjoy summer evenings in this top table and chair set.

Large patio set cover
Enjoy full furniture coverage, even when you’re pitching up in the sticks, with this patio set cover from Draper.

Its vast 270mm x 2200m x 1000mm dimensions mean it can fit up to eight chairs underneath it, keeping any metal or fabric protected from the elements, be in bleaching from the sun or rust because of rain.

The Draper bag’s polyethylene material is strong, meaning a robust coverage, and it can be pinned down with pegs (not included) through the steel plated eyelets.

Stay covered with this Draper essential tool.

Healthspan STYR NutriCoach Bluetooth activity watch

This powerhouse wristwear has battery life for up to two weeks meaning that you can wear it as an everyday time piece as well as a sporty data tracker for exercising.

It is compatible with iOS and Android devices, meaning you can upload your health and fitness information to the Healthspan app on your device. It can even help you monitor your dietary intake.

It’s time to step up your fitness journey.

Leisurewize portable 240-watt spin dryer
Soaked through after a day on the hills? Or just needing to dry off some freshly washed clothes or bedding? Then this spin dryer is the perfect companion for motorhome or caravan trips.

Despite a powerful 2800 rpm rapid spin speed, it’s a quiet machine, thanks to a specially designed spring and dampened feet, meaning it won’t ruin the calm of the campsite, or of the great outdoor space outside your mobile accommodation. Plus, it’s a stable appliance, given its A+ energy rating.

Smart, gravity-assisted drainage to a 5kg capacity; invest in this great tool here.

Lopper, shears and secateurs set (three-piece)
Keep your garden in pristine condition this summer with a three-in-one set of heavy-duty tools from Draper.

The loppers are 61cm long with carbon steel blades and high leverage tubular handles to ensure control when you’re cutting away shrubbery, invasive branches or hard-to-reach vegetation.

The 535mm garden shears will make light work of any trimming and sprucing work needing done, while the handy secateurs are perfect for making small-scale, tailored adjustments to floral arrangements, hanging baskets and other garden colour.

The plastic frame has a rubber inset and a foam kneeler and can bear weight up to 90kg or 14 stone.
