Visual History of Fix-a-FlatTrusted since 1970, the original Fix-a-Flat aerosol tire inflators are the easiest and quickest way to repair a flat tire in an emergency.

Fix-a-Flat was invented in 1970 by Snap Products and became the first emergency aerosol flat tire sealant and inflator. With a name that says exactly what it does, Fix-a-Flat quickly became a household name and continues to dominate the aerosol tire inflator market to this day.

Fix-a-Flat was acquired by Illinois Tool Works (ITW) in 2011 and joined the Accessories Marketing family of brands under ITW in March 2012.

In 2016, Fix-a-Flat invented a ground-breaking formula. Our NEW water-based, better-performing sealant formulation is 100% environmentally friendly.

In 2020, Fix-a-Flat celebrates its golden anniversary - 50 years as a trusted, household name in emergency flat tire repair!
