I want to buy a tire chuck with pressure gauge for my air compressor to
inflate tires (car and motorcycle). I already have a $10 model from
harborfreight but the gauge is way off.
I'm looking at milton branded chucks and some are "lock-on" chuck. I don't
see any mechanism to activate the lock in product pictures. Does that mean
you screw the chuck onto the valve stem?
Wouldn't the weight of the chuck and the guage put a strain on the valve
What is the pros and cons of using a lock-on type vs a regular (push-on)
Did you reclaim the old nitrogen, or did you release it into the
atmosphere? That stuff can be lethal, if you breathe it in 100%

I mixed in some old nitrogen left over from the last set of tires.

I have both. If you are ever going to have an air tank, you will
appreciate not having to hold the chuck on the tank for 5 minutes. If
you ever have any heavy duty tires to fill up (heavy equipment,
tractors, etc.) then you will appreciate not having to hold the chuck on
the tire for 10-15 minutes. If you every have to do any line testing
such as gas lines, you will appreciate it.
If you ever are in a situation where you have to use a very slow
compressor to fill up a normal tire, you will appreciate it.
Other than those times, a non-locking type is just fine.
I've got to disagree with you there. Mine doesn't have the lock
on it-- but it makes pumping tires 1/4 the work of
