Analog Tire Gauge Pressure Operating Instructions
Do Not overinflate the maximum pressure on your tire pressure gauge. Doing so may cause damage to the gauge.
CHECKING TIRE PRESSURES
- Tire pressures should be checked often. Severe weather and temperature swings will cause tire pressures to fluctuate in all tires.
- Tires not inflated to the proper pressure can blow out, wear out faster and reduce fuel mileage.
- It is advisable to never over inflate or under inflate your tires.
- It is highly recommended to check pressures when the tires are cold.
- Tire pressure is measured in pounds per square inch, or PSI. You can often find the right PSI for your vehicle on a sticker inside the driver’s side door jam, in the owner’s manual, or available from the tire provider.
TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
- Firmly press your Angle chuck and or Ball chuck on your valve stem to create a tight airless seal.
- While the chuck is firmly pressed on your valve stem take your reading from the gauge head.
- If you hear any hissing, air is escaping from the tire and you will need to press harder or check the valve stem for damage.
- To release air from your tire simply push the valve button located just below the gauge head.
- Continue until desired pressure is obtained.
- Our Standard (2” face) analog gauges will not hold the pressure once removed from the valve.
- Our Deluxe (2-1./2” face), Liquid Filled (2-1/2” face), Magnum (3-1/2” face) & Precision Pro (4-1/2” face) will hold the pressure until you press the release button.
