ARB ARB600 E-Z Deflator

Just bought the ARB ARB600 E-Z Deflator as I was really tired of deflating with the pressure guage...took forever.



The first time I tried the deflator, after screwing it on and then removing the valve to deflate, there appears to be leaking air - I can hear it. The deflator should not deflate until I pull the deflating valve. Also, reading air pressure is funky as I have to play with the pull valve to get it to read pressure consistantly for more than a few seconds.


I know I am using it correctly, just wonder if others have experienced this problem? Seems that for the price, it would be a bit more of a solid system. Unless it has to be broken in, or there is some trick to its use, I am sorely disappointed in the unit.

I've used one, and yes, they leak anytime the core is unscrewed.

Second that mine works great. If it’s leaking contact ARB directly. I had one that would not seat all they way on certain valve stems, they replaced it for free.

Huh. I may well have a bad one as well then. I have to admit I was never all that concerned about the leaking.

I've actually gone back to just pulling the cores by hand. Even so, I'm more annoyed by how long it takes to air down, than I am worried about letting too much air out.
