Question Tire Deflator's ???

Hey Everyone,,

I was wondering what everyone's opinion is in regards to Tire Deflator's
Been thinking about getting a set for the up-coming season for my JEEP.

Pro's/Con's ?
Best Available On the Market ?
Any HomeGrown Idea's ? A guy use to make some type of clothes-pin style
that Betty&Nicks outside of IBSP/Seaside Pk use to sell..

Thanks In Advance,,,

Steve

Their is a couple of automatic ones out their.
I have the Staun deflators set of 4 think they were $40, you get to the beach screw them on I have them set to stop at 15psi put on waders as the air come out take em off and set to go.

I did make my own with a large paper binder, a hole drilled in the top with a small enuff bolt that would fit in the valve to let air out, dont rember the size mine was from a old erector set a nut to hold it in place. Start counting to when putting on first one after a 30 count take em off and check and adjust.


Now if their was just something that did it when airing up.

It takes some patience to get them adjusted perfectly, but you only have to do it once. I think Jess suggested using your spare to set them.

I have the Trailhead deflates.
Quick & easy but it does pay to check your PSI every so often.
I have found they do go out of adjustment every so often.

Ditto on what everyone else said.

Keep them lubed with pure silicone spray, and keep them super clean in a seperate bag and they hold adjustment a bit better.

I never trusted the automatic deflators. I started out using the binder clips with the screw that Pat mentioned. I bought a set of the plastic clips that work the same way, and have been using them ever since. 45 seconds per tire takes them down to 17 lbs, and if conditions warrant, I just use the tire gage to drop them further. 5 Minutes, and I am ready to go.

I use the binder clips, too. Small ones. 6-32 machine screw held with a nut. I made 2 so I can do one side at the same time. You could do all four at once, but you would have to circle around to see how they were doing.

I'm thinking after you do it 100+ times next season you will be looking to upgrade.
No more riding around the corner and parking

Go to Pep Boys and get the aluminum screw on tire deflators/valve tightners. They are $1.99. For a set of two.
Time how long it takes for them to get to your desired level and you are set, mine take 47 seconds from 37psi to 15.
Much more reliable than jury-rigging an office product.

I hope you carry extra stems with you in case you launch 1 into the sand and can't find it
