Comments about NRS Pressure Gauge Adapter for Leafield Valves:
I'm new to inflatables and wanted to be sure to get the proper pressure in the chambers. This adapter can be used with an inexpensive low pressure tire guage by adding a fitting from an easily obtainable inflator kit ($2 at an auto parts store), plus the valve stem from a bicycle tube (probably available for free from your local bicycle shop). The low pressure guage may be found where 4 wheelers or motorcycles are sold. The one I bought ($10) registers from 0 to 8 psi in half pound increments, making it very easy to read 2.5 psi, the recommended pressure for my boat. You will have to saw the valve stem off just above the tube and run the nut over the sawn threads to clean them up. I used thread sealing tape to make the two connections air tight. Be careful when you take your hand off the adapter after pressing it into the C7 valve; it may pop out far enough to strike you if it is not in real tight.

I used this adaptor on a gauge with a 1/8" NPT thread. It fits perfectly and no leaks.
