PCL Digital Tyre Pressure Guage

Postby Cube Rider » 25 Mar 2020, 5:53pm

Hi, my son recently gave my a PCL digital tyre pressure guage

as in this picture, does any other member own and use one?
I ask because the first time I tried to use it on the schrader valves on my MTB it wouldn’t seal to read the pressure and would have completely deflated the tyre.
Should there be a rubber sealing ring in the mouth that you insert over the valve?

Thanks for any help or advice

Hi Guys, as well as posting within this forum I also emailed PCL, within a few hours I received a reply which confirmed that there should be a rubber sealing ring where you place the device on the valve to check your tyre pressure. :D

I hope they are going to send you one!
