AN EXCELLENT PRODUCT
4 November 2018
I wrote my first review with following details under headline "Mouthpiece is not adequately deep to prevent air leak from tyre while measuring pressure". After this review the seller admitted "For your query about air leakage . We want to state that if at any angle air is leaking it may be a faulty piece. there is a black rubber ring inside the mouth piece which may not be properly aligned. We suggest you to return and replace for a new piece. Earlier also some buyers told us about the issue So we have got the mouth piece made more deeper. That lot has just started selling. So Please request amazon for replacement or return and buy again your money will be refunded. We will help you if any problem. You can also contact on email given on the box." Accordingly a replacement was ordered and the replaced product is WORKING PERFECTLY FINE. Even the pressure reading is exactly matching with digital air pressure pump at petrol pumps.
Descriptions of pictures:
Pic. 1: Contents of the package: 1 No. Karter KTR-001 Tyre Pressure gauge along with 4 Nos. of tyre valve cap in a good cardboard box.
Pic. 2 & 3: User manual. Well written.
Pic. 4 & 5: Writings over the box - adequate information.
Pic. 6 & 7: The product. Study and rugged built. Overall dimensions: Height - 12.5 cm (approx.), Diameter of dial - 4.7 cm (approx.), Depth - 3.3 cm (approx.) Size is quite handy. The dial scale is 0 to 60 psi - better than other dial scale of 0 - 100 psi as the former scale is more spread out, reading from the former would be easier.
Pic. 8: The picture of mouth piece with inadequate depth that causes air leakage while measuring and the leakage can not be arrested even after trying with different holding/orientation angle. Sorry for not sharp picture. In case any user faces same problem, then please get in touch with the seller and the seller might advise you for a replacement (as they did for me).
Pic. 9: The mouth piece of replaced product which works perfectly fine. The difference in depth (from Pic. 8) may be few millimetre, but that solves air leakage problem.
Pic. 10: However while handling the replaced product I faced another problem, but that I could resolve myself, however I wish to share the same to help other users. While rotating the 360° swivel chuck (refer Pic. 2 to identify the part) or mouth piece, the top part came out and few internal parts popped up outside.
Pic. 11: Internal parts that popped out - a spring, a nozzle, a black rubber circular piece, a white plastic circular piece. Sequence of re-installation of these items are marked in the picture.
Pic. 12, 13, 14 & 15: Re-installation of these internal parts step by step pictures.
With this sequence of re-installation of internal parts the product is working, however if anyone finds there should be a difference sequence, then please do share.
