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.



  • 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.





  • 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.
