I love vehicles. At an early age my parents opened and ran an oil change business, which I later worked at. So I got to know a lot about vehicles and I really started to love them. It is something I always thought about doing, but there is such a huge bias against female mechanics, which has stopped me from going forward. I am really sick though health wise, so I couldn't get a real job doing it, but I might be able to help some friends!
You can see by the picture that this is a very large tire gauge. I wasn't expecting how large it really was. It is also pretty heavy..well heavier then any of the others I have used before. I actually love the size of this though. The handle is long enough, that you don't have to bend down very far to see exactly how much air is in your tires. I hate it when I have to get super close to the dirty tire to find out the number, so this works out well for me.
It seems to be very well put together and made. The materials all seem legit and i don't think that this will be easily broken. I drop everything all the time, so that is a major plus to me. I have broken other tire gauges int he past and they were useless afterwards. I do not want to do a drop test on this one though, because I actually really love it!
The checks that I did on my car and my friends car, seemed to come back the same every time. When using a different gauge, the levels seem to change every time even when I checked a tire back to back. I found that my back hurt after checking all of these but not from this gauge, it was from the others.
The design of this is probably my favorite part. I can easily hang this in the garage or shed, over a nail and know that it will stay and be safe right there. It's nice to be able to place it and forget about it until I need it, instead of having to search all over! Another thing I love, is the gauge itself. It is clear and I can read it pretty easily. It almost looks like a tiny tire and is very easy to grip and hold!
Head on over to the Tire Pressure Gauge product page on Amazon. From there you can find out more about this tire gauge, see what other people are saying about it, and you can pick one up for yourself, or for someone you know who could use a great tire gauge!
