ARB Deflator

I just got my ARB E-Z Tire Deflator (ARB ARB505 - ARB E-Z Tire Deflator - Quadratec) today and I was playing around with it. It seemed that the pressure gauge didn't show the correct pressure, but I'm not sure if it's because I didn't remove the valve core all the way. In the course of playing around with it, I thought I had removed the valve core, but actually didn't unscrew it far enough.

Just wondering if anyone else on here has this deflator and if you have had any issues with the gauge or what. I'm very impressed with the product, and it seems to work pretty good... I'm guessing that the gauge reading was off due to user error, but thought I'd ask on here anyway.

I have the Currie version of this deflator, I did not test the guage accuarcy though as I did not let much air out of my tire. It will get a nice testing this Saturday at the meet and greet though.

Great product! Had mine for over 2 years, still works like a champ, rain or shine. The gauge accuracy is iffy for some, fortunately mine matches when I compared its readings to other gauges. A co-wheeler told me that his is off by 2 psi.

When I check my pressure, the core has to be out and the outer collar has to slide down towards the air stem - to the point where the air ceases to come out.

If air is flowing, it won't give an accurate reading. You have to slide the collar down to stop the flow.

^^^^ nevermind, already been said. Sorry.

Thanks for the help. I went out again and tested it some more. The gauge seems pretty accurate now, at least it gives the same readings as the other gauge I have. So, it was user error after all.
