: Ah, the "cap" approach rather than the plug approach.  Hmm.  No
: problems with it popping off?  I was practically describing your
: device(ie, truck tire inflator and the like), I've seen the photos
: before.

Never had it blow off even though I have over pressurized it to 25+ PSI. No
damage to the pressure transducer - guess I got lucky. I have discovered
that a 1/4 to 1/2 a turn on the hose clamps can make a connection leak. I
was amazed they were that sensitive.

Interesting "grandmother" story <g> Seems here in MT, people flash the highs
for 3 reasons. Deer in or near the road, saying Hi to someone they know or
to let one know there is a REO ahead. Reason 2 is the least common so one
knows there is "danger" ahead usually.
