I was about to order a replacement for my old accutire "Racing" air pressure gage until i read these reviews.
The gage is not as easy to use as a one piece gage and the hose adds several places for failure to occur, but it seems to be very accurate and repeatable, which is important to me as i drive a porsche on interstates where the speed limit is 80mph and the ambient air temperatures are well over 100F much of the year. I can feel slight differences in pressure so i appreciate the 0.1 psi increments and the porported close tolerance of the readings.
The valve stem retainer clip failed shortly after i purchased ths one i own (several years ago) and now the hose leaks at the gage end. Not worth trying to fix. I have thrown it away and will look for an accurate, easy to use replacement. BUmmer.
Another example of a good product idea poorly executed, and I can say that with some authority as i am a licensed professional engineer (TX, Retired) whose specialty is machine design. HTH.
