In the link noted above, look at page 2, line 13. "Tire inflation device" - A tire inflation device?
I read "A tire deflation device."

Truck drivers, correct me if I'm wrong, but, I know a lot of drivers, carried, what I heard referred to as a "thumper" which they would use to "thump" their tires to see if they were low on air. It was a short wooden stick, similar to a baton, that they carried in their cab. It would also make a great "attitude adjuster" if need be.

I have one in my super duty. it is labeled tire checker. That is what I use it for. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I’m a neighborhood uhaul dealer, and uhaul provides me with a tire thumper to check tire pressure on trucks being returned. They have a training video for it as well. It’s a nifty club, about 15” long i think, with a 2 inch wide band or thick metal wrapped around the business end. It really makes tires ring.

But, a thumper doesn't deflate tires, does it?

I guess it would if used violently enough. But I don't think that's the kind of "deflation device" they're talking about.

Yeah, I picked up a monadnock used to try it out. Better than having nothing in certain scenarios.

Tire deflation device = spike strips or sharp pointy object with hollow inside to allow for rapid deflation. Not something you put on valve stems to bleed air. :roll:

Now let me get back to sharpening my poniard which is now legal as a "location restricted knife".

Gotta say, that it is one tool that makes me flinch. Stick that between someone's ribs, and they'll be gasping with a tension pneumo in a couple of seconds.
