How-to: Adjust Staun Tire Deflators

Step 1: Deflate a tire down to the perferred deflation pressure. I chose 18 psi.



Step 2: With the lock ring (thin one) and the adjusting cap (big one on top) wound all the way clockwise (down the shaft), screw the tire deflator onto the tire valve stem. Air should not leak out at this point.



Step 3: Loosen the adjustment cap by rotating it counter clockwise slowly until air starts leaking out of the deflator.



Step 4: Immediately tighten the cap down clockwise a bit to stop the air from leaking out and tighten the locking ring by rotating it counter clockwise to contact the adjustment cap.



Be careful that you don't rotate the adjustment cap.



Step 5: Optionally use a bit of lock-lite to put a drop of sealant into the treads of the locking ring.

That's a dirty bottle of Lock-tite! I've been using that thing for years to lock the rings of my rifle scopes. I think it's time to invest in another bottle.

Thanks for taking the mystery out of those things. I've been looking at them for awhile. Knowing how they work, and that I have access to your great how-to helped me make up my mind. Thanks.

Great write-up But, didn't ALL of you guys get the instructions that came with the deflaters ?
I gave a set away with the last truck,,,,which led me to buying a new set just a few months ago.
( Actually, I forgot them in the glovebox ! )
But, I digress,,,,
Great Write-Up !

Yeah, i had the instructions.... but it never hurts to compliment somebodys hard work when posting a write up.... Plus it helps those who dont have them understand how easily they work, just in case they were wondering if they wanted to fork up the cash for them.....

On a side note.... these things are fantastc.... worth every penny!!! I used them in Moab and laughed (internally) at everyone who had to deflate their tires manually.

Aren't instructions only for reading after you "F" something up?

Just set my stauns to 18lb, nice write up! I used blue thread lock and also wraped them with electrical tape! Time to go wheel and test them out.
