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 now own one for each of my vehicles... simple, easy. The “bleed” trigger is super easy to use. And it has a light which makes it easy to use at night.
First off I need to give you a little back ground as to what my son and I do. We Drag Race, and if you know anything about drag racing you know how critical tire pressure is, is as important as any other job that is done to win a race. We have used MANY tire pressure gauges in the past and found that this one from Craftsman, just worked the best of any others we have found and is the best bang for the buck.
So your tire looks low. Attach your compressor and inflate your tire. Dial up the tire pressure for this car which is stored. Oh you over inflated? Hit the deflate button and deflate the tire to the set pressure. The led light is a bonus when inside a dark garage.
works well, small, like the digital readout!
