Deflating your tyres

Deflators are supplied at a preset pressure

The deflators are supplied at a preset pressure, however you can adjust this pressure to your desired level. It is not necessary to reset them again unless you wish to change the psi that you want to reduce your tyre pressure to.

Exactly how much you reduce your tyre pressure depends on a variety of factors, such as how much weight your tyres are supporting. Additionally the softness of the surface that you are travelling on will also affect how much you need to let your tyres down. Through trial and error you can find your personal preference and determine what tyre pressure suits you.

Staun Tyre Deflators do not have a minimum start off pressure so you do not need to bring your tyre pressure back up in order to reduce it further. Simply turn the adjusting cap anti-clockwise to further reduce your tyre pressure. If they do not start automatically you can manually start them by lifting the pin. Please check your product header card for individual pressure settings.

The Staun Tyre Deflators need to be screwed on using the finger grip located at the base of the deflator body. Do not use the adjusting cap or lock ring to fix the deflator to the valve stem. For a comprehensive demonstration on how to install the deflators onto your tyres please view the video above.

Every now and again you come across a product that is truly revolutionary and worth its weight in gold, saving time and inconvenience when out in the field. The staun tyre deflator kit is one of those rarities, a great accessory that belongs in every four wheeler’s glovebox, easily used for accurate deflation purposes, perfect as a gift.

SCV5/HD

This unique set comes with 4 Standard deflators and 2 Heavy Duty deflators. Designed to suit those who tow camper trailers and vans off road and on the beach. While your 4WD tyres are deflated to your preferred pressure, the trailer would normally deflate to different pressures based on the weight of the trailer/van.

This set allows you to deflate your 4WD and trailer at the same time without having to adjust your 4WD deflators to deflate your trailer/van. Your 4 Standard deflators are preset at 18psi and the 2 Heavy Duty deflators are preset at 22psi.
