At only £3.80 you can't really go wrong and with Amazon Prime's next-day delivery it's even more fantastic!

The triangle is pretty lightweight even when in its storage box. The orange part of the triangle in the photograph is made of material whilst the outer red parts are traditional plastic reflectors. The metal frame makes it sturdy enough for what it's designed for.

My biggest query prior to ordering was how to store it in the car - the Amazon product page didn't have the box dimensions listed so you can't tell how big/small it is until you have bought it. So, with that in mind, the dimensions of the storage box are: 44cm x 5.5cm x 3.5cm.

I already had a triangle that came as standard with my car but because I planned to motor to Spain I decided to get a second one in order to avoid any roadside hassle from the Spanish authorities - apparently you are required to place them about 30 metres behind AND in front of the vehicle. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this item - it is robust and well constructed, and heavier than I expected, and WILL stand up to a strong wind. It folds up neatly into its storage case. I can't see how this can be sold for £3 including delivery, and still make a profit. Buy it.

I don't know how they can sell and deliver this so cheaply. This is a quality product.
The end of the red plastic outer case pops off allowing you to slide out the folded triangle.
The two sides simply move up and clip at the top. Behind these is an orange triangle that
automatically folds out to form the inner part of the triangle.
On the base are four metal legs that flod out to keep it all upright and stable.
30 seconds to assemble (if that) 30 seconds to put away.

It does what it says and is 25% the price of exactly the same article at a well known auto parts store.

Purchased 2 of these as if you break down or come across an accident on a bend in the road then you may need one for each side of the bend. They are compact to store in the car for the hopefully rare occasion when they might be needed. Have not had to use these yet but they seem to be of strong construction for most situations. A friend who had to use a similar triangle at a roadside said that the next lorry which came along just ran over it. Not sure that this one would withstand that but it is not flimsy and yet light and compact.

The item is a bit lightweight and flimsy compared to more expensive versions but hopefully, one will not need to use it very often.

Got one of these for a recent trip on the continent as you must have one by law in some countries plus a high vis jacket. This was the cheapest one around, fast delivery, does the job enough said.

I ordered two of these because I was driving to Spain where normally two triangles must be carried in the car. The law, apparently, is that cars not registered in Spain need only one, but I was taking no chances.

They were described as (normally expensive) AA Triangles, but they were not what we were sent. The Triangles we received were not an AA product but were properly EU approved and so this was no problem.

If you are going into Europe you have to carry a red triangle with you in case of break down. I looked at several and settled on this one for two reasopns, firstly the price it was the cheapest that I had seen and secondly as it is marketed by the AA I was sure that because of their reputation that it would be a good product. It is very simple but it does the job that it is supposed to with out blowing over at the slightest puff of wind.
