    I'll ad that I don't agree that "friction" is "a design feature", I'm(we all are) betting our collective lives on it being there when we need it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fine
    I mis understood your question

    Why are we all relying on"friction" to save our collective lives. ???

    I do not think we have a choice. Do you have an alternative?

    Pencil type pressure gauges rely on friction and relative air pressure to overcome the friction.

    I've received the following reply from the maker of the EZ Gauge:

    "Steve,
    We changed the chuck design to accommodate a better chuck and seal. A majority of these units go towards automobile use. Regardless, I know firsthand how frustrating it is to check tire pressure on a motorcycle tire. I've seen clearances of no more than 3/4 of an inch with some of the disc brakes.

    Regardless, this chuck change took place earlier this year. If you'd like the old chuck, which, judging by your email you would prefer, I'd be happy to send the old style chucks out to you with a new hose. Just send along your name and address, and confirm that you require three hoses and chucks, and I'll take care of it, to make sure these units work for you.

    Thanks in advance, and have a great new year.

    G.H. Meiser & Co."


    Pretty good service.

    After years (I don't know how many) of using a digital Gorilla brand gauge, this weekend, it decided that all the tires in the world have 0.0 lbs of pressure.

    I still use the old style pencil gauge and am very happy with it. From what I understand, it is more important to use the same gauge each time than to worry if the gauge is analog or digital.
