Airing down on the cheap

So I a few months ago my ammo cans got jacked and my fancy JT Brooks tire deflators were in there. I didn't want to spend that much again (even though I love them) so I decided to get a cheap deflator. The one I got looked similar to ARB and Smittybilt so I think they may be from the same Chinese plant.

Anyways many reviews were negative about this style of deflator so I decided to give it a go. Here's my vid and spoiler alert...I figured it out.

I have the "Boulder Gear" Deflator kit with I think that same (or very close) gauge. Their deflators are all brass and a pretty good once setup.
