MOOSE 4-WAY TIRE-VALVE TOOL

PERFORMANCE:

The 4-way tire-valve repair tool includes tools for installing and removing valve cores, removing broken valve cores, repairing valve-stem threads, and repairing valve-core threads.

Normally, a valve cap with a valve-core tool is all we need to remove or install valve cores, but we’ve all encountered a stubborn valve core. The 4-way tire-valve repair tool’s T-handle-like shape provides extra torque to remove frozen valve cores, and the tool is small enough to easily use with most UTV wheels. Valve-stem threads are soft brass, which can get mangled easily in rough off-road riding, especially if you ride without valve-stem caps. Damaged valve-stem threads won’t let you add air with air compressors or CO2 inflators with thread-on fittings. The steel tire-valve tool chases damaged threads easily, but it can’t help a badly deformed stem. Valve-core thread damage is fairly rare, but if you have to use the 4-way tire-valve repair tool’s pointed, threaded, broken valve-core remover, the valve-core threads will need some cleaning up. The tool is zinc-plated to prevent rust.

The tool’s T-handle-like shape provides the torque to remove frozen valve cores or chase damaged valve-stem threads, and the tool is small enough to use easily with most UTV wheels.

THE VERDICT:

If you’re lucky, you’ve probably never experienced most of the problems the 4-way tire-valve repair tool is designed for. Ride off-road long enough and you’ll probably encounter them all eventually. This tool is affordable, compact and can solve them all.
