PCL’s valve core retracting tool – first for speed and safety

Eliminate the risk of injury from “flying valve cores” with PCL’s new retracting tool, which also helps operators work faster.

Removing a valve core during inflation is common practice within the commercial vehicle industry as it enables faster tyre inflation. However this practice is fraught with danger, with accidents whilst removing valves from tyres is common, therefore it is not normally recommended.

PCL has overcome this problem with the Valve Core Retracting Tool, which is especially designed for the safe installation and removal of tyre valve cores during inflation.

The dual benefit of increased safety and vastly reduced inflation/deflation time makes PCL’s tool an essential piece of kit for busy workshops.

The Valve Core Retracting Tool should be used in conjunction with a safe and reliable tyre inflator such as: the robust and accurate MK3; the rapid, digital ACCURA 1; or the fast and simple AirForce dial unit.

Available with a Euro clip-on or sliding clip-on tyre valve connection, with an integral tailpiece, the Valve Core Retracting Tool features a clear body, allowing the operator to see when the valve core is fully retracted.
