True Temper Penguin Autoboss Tire-sized Emergency Shovel

Let’s face it, when it comes to heavy accumulation of snow we’re all pretty much screwed. But you’re even more screwed if you have a car and you actually need to get somewhere. You could just throw an average shovel in your trunk, but they’re unwieldy, inconvenient and also too large for most average hatchbacks. The Penguin Autoboss from True Temper is the perfect emergency shovel for the trunk of any car. 150 square inches of blade clearance means it’s just the right size for most tires. The extending and locking mechanism–it rotates from the central hinge–means it’s small enough to fit just about anywhere. Since that central hinge is built the way it is, it also doubles as a second handle in case it’s one of those mornings where you really wished you worked from home.
