How To Use Pistol Grip Tire Inflator


How To Use Pistol Grip Tire Inflator?

As an end user, you will not get the maximum benefits from these technologies unless you maintain correct tire pressure. Thus, you must be aware of how to use tire inflator correctly.

(Three  Important Step By Step Lessons)

1.You can use the tire inflator if the tires are a little low on air or it has a slow leak. To inflate tires, you need to connect the nozzle of the compressor to the valve stem of the tire correctly. Before turning on the compression pump, you should make sure that all connections are proper

2.Now, it is time to switch on the air inflator, which allows compressed air to enter inside the tire. This process should be done with proper care. If you hear any hissing sound, you should switch off the inflator. It makes a hissing sound because of improper connection. So, you can re-tighten the valve-stem connection and nozzle properly. An improper connection will lead to an air leakage in the system.

3.You should stop and check the air pressure periodically by using a pressure gauge, which prevents over-inflation. You should also check the recommended air pressure for your vehicle. You can find it in the owner manual of your vehicle or on a placard on the driver door jamb.

It requires around 2-3 minutes inflating a fully flat tire. But, if the tire is slightly under-inflated, you can do the job in 40-50 seconds. You should discharge the compressor nozzle safely after inflating the tire. You should loosen the connection only after switching off the inflator.
