This is by far the best tire gauge I've owned, which includes digital and analog versions. I've had the gauge for over 5 years and use it regularly to check the inflation on our cars. Has held up well. Also, it has features many of the other gauges just don't have. For instance, it has a nice light, which has been helpful many times when a flashlight wasn't available. Also, has a bleeder valve so that you can easily deflate the tire. Programmable function is nice and the readout is clear. The way the readout is positioned makes reading the inflation while the gauge is still on the valve very easy. Gauges with side placed readouts are more difficult to read. I'm buying two more of these for our growing family!
The tire gauge is awesome. Second one I own. The web-site, store, customer service, and overall rating of Sears, nowadays, is absolutely pitiful. Attitudes are very poor at three different stores I shop. The web-site is a nightmare. The site allows you to place the order, then advises "out of stock" The site further displays which stores have your item, but when you travel over 50 miles to get there; they don't have it. Then you choose another store, arrive, and the tool dept associate advises we can't get those anymore. However, when you walk to the adjacent aisle next to the auto center, there were 14 of them hanging on the rack. The associate had no explanation. Sears needs to make a decision; Either get it together and be Sears again, or get out of the business and close it up. Sick and tired of no support from Sears anymore.
I love everything about this tire gauge, except for one thing; the battery life. I use my tire gauge about once per month; I find that if I leave the batteries in the gauge, they will be drained by the next time I use it. So after I use the tire gauge, I take the batteries out and re-install them the next time. It's a pain, but at least I'm not going thru a ton of batteries. Obviously, something in the unit is draining the batteries even though the gauge is supposedly powered off.
I replaced the batteries, now it reads between 30 and 50 psi high - and it's random - if it were the same amount each time it would be fine. I have been a certified Master Auto Tech for 40 yrs - the craftsman name and warranty are now worthless - just a gimmick now - too bad
