Chrome didn't work on Mac when I first tried to d/l it. Should I try again?

Sorry to continue the thread hijack.

If any of you guys have a set of the Staun or Smittybilt deflators that you want to sell, let me know.

May consider them but the are pretty costly compared to other options.

The EZ deflaters were created by Currie Enterprises. The very first ones were very expensive. When Currie outsourced them to off shore manufacturing it made them affordable and also opened up knock offs to the masses. The concept in ingenious and very simple. Screw the apparatus on the valve stem. Push the knob into the valve stem and remove it internally. Slide the large knob to open the open ports. Let the tire air down to where you want it then simply close the air ports, then screw the valve stem back into place that is out but still contained in the apparatus. Unscrew the assembly and move on.....no chance of lost valve cores.

Looks like UB beat me to it. His explanation is spot on

I have been using the original Currie Ez Deflater, which I bought for 60.00 8 years ago with no issues. Not any faster than the staun guys at the trailhead but I control the psi the first time.

You guys are a bad influence, and I haven't even met any of you yet!!! I have a set of Staun's, new in the plastic packaging, and I went out an ordered the Currie just now after reading this thread....guess I will do my own comparison.
