Check out the toolbox of your local mechanic, or in the race pits, and you're likely to see dial-type tire gauges because they're very accurate and easy to read-the TirePro gauge has a 12" flexible braided hose that makes even hard-to-get-to valves an easy endeavor, and a built-in valve lets you "bleed" down to the desired pressure
The dial gauge itself is plastic with a diameter of about 2"

Pressure is held until the attached purge valve is released. Readings are in psi and Kpa (up to 60 psi), and the dial has a brass finish casing that is protected by a rubber boot.
