PSIclops tire pressure tool

Tirerack has them on closeout for $39, down from $79. Im considering buying one so i can adjust pressures on the trail easily. Im a big guy and i hate kneeling down for the airing down period. I hate refilling even more.

Looks to me like you'd still have to bend down to hook it up.

I think you'd be better off, IMO, with Staun Deflators. You also have to bend down to install and remove them, but you can put them on all 4 tires at once, and drive away while the tires air down to your pre-set pressure. No need to hang around and monitor the guage for 2 tires, only to have to do that again for the other 2...

... and to add to Larry's comments, Stauns are midline price to those two prices you have listed.

I like the Staun deflators, but the PSIclops allows you to stand up while refilling. :)

So does my Power Tank... but you don't fill up at the same time you air down, so I still think the Stauns will save you and your back time...

I'll have to check out the PSIclops next time we meet on the trail...

Smittybilt sells a copy of the staundeflators for about half the price, either way staun deflators rock once set there isn't another deflator that beats them

The materials used in the Smittybilt (made in China) copies are NOT the same as the Staun deflators - they do not have the same quality, accuracy, or reliability...

I own some Staun Tyre deflators but also some Trailhead's. The Trailheads I have not calibrated but I am thinking one set for one PSI and the other for another. And different type just because I like to check things out.

I just realized this forum is in another time zone and it is later than I thought. How I can have three clocks in front of me, two of which are my actual time and pick the wrong one is beyond me. :roll:
