I bought one today along with a powerfist tri ball that was 22 bucks. It works smooth so I may have to pick up a few more at that price. There was a large display of them.

Why is pressure lock feature useful?

Was just saying to my wife today, wish that PA had free shipping over a certain amount... their shipping prices kill most deals if you don't live near a store.
The first rule of RFD is, you do not talk about RFD.

Thanks OP, will pick up a couple more. I have one of these, not the exact Powerfist brand but looks almost identical, it's the only one still working after all others have come and gone. Works in all temperatures, no batteries required. Simple is best for this tire gauge.

Because you cannot always view the dial due to stem orientation so it keeps record of last reading.

Digital is the way to go as this is too small to read and imprecise.

I agree. But our cold winters kills the battery of digital gauges. Most likely i will never go back to using digital ones and for this price one cant go wrong and I'm not too worried if i am .25lbs off in pressure I'm not driving an F1 car in a race.

It's unobservable between 30 and 33 psi and it does make a difference when driving.
What car do you drive for you think have their point of view?

The Markham store has a whole shopping cart full of these...right to the top so I'm guessing they expect a lot of sales.

I'll pass. I have a digital one and haven't changed the battery in some time.

RFD is hilarious .. I don't need this tire gauge deal but I'll chime in saying I prefer the digital ones .. or I don't need one at all because my dealer checks for me

I have used them decades ago and stopped using them when I realized I only needed to take a look at all four tires when tires are cold and I know right away if more pressure is needed. I guess I learned from using the gauges decades ago. And haven't used one in decades. I go to the dealer and they occasionally check the pressure and it is always fine.

I currently own 4 vehicles... But right now I'm using the LX460 because I need a lot of space for my dog.
I find that after eyeing the tires it helps to give them a kick just to make sure. Seriously this is a good deal. I picked one up a year ago when it was on sale too.
