How do Tyrecheckers® Heavy Vehicle LED Alert Caps Work?

Tyrecheckers® Heavy Vehicle LED Alert Caps simply replace the dustcap on your tyre valve. The Alert Caps allow you to monitor your tyre pressure by flashing red when the tyre pressure drops 8psi below the set pressure. This provides you a clear visual warning when your tyre pressure is below vehicle specifications and needs to be inflated.
