Tyre inflation
« on: April 02, 2018, 12:25:08 AM »
Does any one else here in the uk have the same problem
Every few weeks I attempt to check my tyre pressures on the garage forcourt every bloody time I end up loosing the pressure out due to the valves being so short which doesn’t allow the compressor pump to push
On far enough to get the correct seal psi keeps going up and down on the didplay until it says error and stops working
I bought some cheap valve extenders but even they wouldn’t work today

Ditto, cant rely on them for working or being acurate, worth spending money on.

 Yes I also use my own compressor, never trusted the forecourt ones. But I must admit I have to use an angled end to the air line to get a good fit.

Had the same problem last week at the garage. Lost pressure and ended up limping home to use the foot pump instead. My compressor wouldn't work either but at least I know what the problem is now. Short valve syndrome!

As you cam see its the attachment for the Compressor, it has a flexible end and works fine. I am sure you can buy flexible extenders I will take another look and get back to you.
