I purchased some flexible valve extensions.
My clamp-on air chuck would not seal.

It turns out the inside diameter of the extension opening was SLIGHTLY smaller than all of my other valve stems.

I unscrewed the front part of the check and filed down the center section (which depresses the valve core). It was a touch too wide.

Now this check works on all my valves.

Regards,

Dan

Get a Milton dual head air chuck and your troubles will be over.

Available at heavy truck shop distributors.

Made in the USA.....get their air gauge while you are at it!

There are valve stems and air chucks, and there are quick disconnects.

often the chuck is attached to the hose with a quick disconnect.. This is so you can easily change chucks or swap in an air tool inplace of the chuck


Quick Disconnects come in several sizes and shapes and they have to be matched.. If you have a QD "Chuck" end (hose end) with a "Deep throat" and a tool end with a short shank, it won't work.

On the other hand if the chuck is threaded onto the hose.. it should work.

I have purchased two CTA Tools 1930 Straight Lock-On Air Chuck, and found them to not work very well. They didn't lock on and the pins always would fall out.

Got a recommendation on this board for this chuck and it works much better for me.

TexasTom - haven't seen that design but it looks like it is still a straight on. So far my CTA has worked like a champ. The lock on is SO much better than squatting there holding it.
