You dont unscrew the stem. It has two sides, one side depresses the stem one unscrews. You would have to be mad to unscrew your valves anywhere but next a an air compressor.

Up in the Cape a guy discovered that unscrewing the stem, letting the tire deflate until in begins whistling, count to 5, replace the stem & you've got 12psi, every time (try it at the compressor some time). The first few times I did it were at Race Point at the air station. After a while you realise it's no big deal, it's easy to get the stem back in. I gotta admit I was biting down on an extra stem & had an old bicycle pump in the truck.
After a while the bride bought me a set of the brass deflators so now I put them on, get in the truck with the radio crankin' and wait it out. They work well but the noise...

Bringing this back from the past, not worth the price to me but figured I would share:
Dual Tire Inflator.
FYI think its made more for dualies, If you don't have a onboard air system you would also have to rig up a way to hook it up to a air chuck.

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'm assuming he is removing the valve cores

NO it is a two sided doohickey. One side can remove the valve stem. The other side is a flat cylinder as you screw it down it depresses the valve and lets the air out of the top of the dohickey.

Anyone who removes a valve stem on the beach is not the sharpest tool in the shed. At least my shed.

Geegaws, widgets, and gadgets too.

It may not have a name, but it needs to be sharp.

After using Jess' many times including once on my own, THEN deflating without them, those Oasis trailheads are my next purchase.

I used a coffee stirrer for a year. That was a pain. I dont mind paying good money for good gear, but if I can find a way for $3 instead of $55 I am taking it But I think about those oasis thnga-ma-jiggys alot. Maybe for the bald guys birfday.

All of the above is and has been very educational, however, the "thigamajigger" has replaced the doohickies etc....

I apologize for bump an old topic from the dead, just have a few interesting observations from personal experience, maybe someone will need this information in the future.
I had kind of overlooked the Currie EZ deflator https://mechanicguides.com/best-tire-deflators/ for some reason, so thanks for chiming in with your experience with this one. It eliminates two of my main concerns with removing the core: one that I will drop and lose the core, and two that I can't check the pressure as I'm letting the air out. I also like the idea of being able to air down to a different pressure depending on the conditions. So, this one is definitely in the running.

Speaking of different pressures... what is is a good range to air down to for 33x12.50 BFG MTs on 8" rims, on a YJ (stock motor and axles, average amount of tools). In the past when I've aired down I didn't have a way to air back up so I'd only go to 18, or maybe 16 depending on how bad the drive back to a gas station was. I should be getting an onboard air setup soon so I'm looking forward to being able to go lower.
