Airing down..

What's a good 'air down' tool?
I've got two auto deflators in my glove box but can't remember the name brand. (they squeal until the air stops)
I'd like to find two more just like these, but I'm open to suggestions..other than stones

Staun I believe is the more popular brand.

I use Currie deflators-have the little guage and great and I feel better control once you get used to 'how long do I let it go' feeling. No chance of blowing a stem out over your shoulder....and it makes airing back up a little easier because the guage is very accurate. We have 2 of them so we can do 2 tires at once and it takes no time at all. Usually can beat someone using the 'airdown' valve and we've seen a lot of those that don't go right every time.

There are at least 10 different methods for "air-down", I've used STAUN for both trailer and vehicle, but Smittybuilt makes about the same units-

I like, because you just lean over each tire-screwem in-pull pin then go to the next tire, by the time (4 minutes) you,ve gone around the vehicle they're, just about done, if not and you have to move--just drive away to a new spot, then unscrew-put away-

If you have/like a certain air-down pressure-just setem and forgetem-pretty handy little units-STAUN DEFLATORS
