Greek term or phrase: σκύλα (για spare tyre)
Context: invoice for Land Rover servicing/repairs.

φίλτρο λαδιού, φίλτρο αέρα, γρασάρισμα, **σκύλα** για spare tyre.

If I've read the handwriting correctly, the word is σκύλα.
I think I've seen σκύλα used in a cycling context for some kind of glue. Is that what it means here?

vice grip

Normally the tool kit of a Range Rover has a vice grip for multy-use .

The following is a Land Rover tool kit for long range trips.

Tool Kit

The basic rule is to make sure that you have the necessary tools suited to your vehicle. If you are not mechanically inclined and do not normally work on your vehicle, then don't carry every single imaginable tool which you know you will not use. If you are traveling in a group, you should have the basics, but try to avoid duplication of larger, heavier bulkier items.

Socket sets metric (8-26) and/or AF (5/16 - 11/4 inch) Hammer, screwdriver set, file, vice grip Pliers, medium, long-nose, wire cutters and wide mouth grips
Flat/ring spanner sets metric (8-26) and/or AF (5/16 - 11/4 inch) Shifting spanners, small and large Circuit tester
Hacksaw or steel saw Tyre pump, electric or manual Any other special spanners required for your vehicle.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you, Stamatios. Are you answering this question on the basis of σκύλα or σκάλα?

Asker: I thought so - this is worth knowing, that you understand σκύλα in this way. I'm sorry I can't grade this question, because I closed it this morning, but please feel free to enter this in the glossary, and earn some points that way.
