U.S. Patent : # 5,569,849

Inventor : Craig N. Cummings

new invention

As attorney for the inventor of the innovative Visual Tire Cap Pressure Gauge we are currently seeking manufacturing companies to license or enter into a royalty agreement for this timely invention.

The Visual Tire Cap Pressure Gauge is comprised of a cap that is secured to the valve stem of a tire in a motor vehicle. A lens is mounted on the top end of the cap, which indicates (by changing color) when air pressure within the tire drops below a set point. This enables the user to tell at a glance if the tire needs more air.

Now for the first time this simple and easy to use Visual Tire Cap Pressure Gauge is being made available to millions of potential users. It can be used on both passenger and commercial vehicles, and provides and early warning system to save fuel (partially deflated tires cause the vehicle to have worse gas milage). The low manufacturing cost of the product is also of major importance.
