    Some of you know what it is already, but the new bit of kit me and Siân are going to be selling at Peterborough is about to be revealed. :BigGrin: We have formed a new company and are the UK sole distributer of this superb precision engineered product.

    While we know they will sell well to motorhomers (and tuggers and toaders) Our main target market will be the commercial haulage sector where our French and German Distibutors have excelled last year selling tens of thousands, we hope to do as well:Eek!:

    The first test order should be with us on Monday and I hope to sell out at Peterborough :Smile:

    Here take a look click Wodja fink?

    A good idea, but highly nick-able.

    I reckon it's a great idea. I will get some for the M/H. Don't need them for the cars but a lot of cars won't have sensors.

    Good luck:thumb:

    They lock in place. You are supplied with a couple of keys for your keyrings. Once locked the out sleeve spins so they cannot be nicked.

    Thanks I'll make that aspect plainer on the website:thumb:

    See the answer above your post Dave, I do need state on the site that they are locked on. :thumb:

    do they come in different colour LED's. Are they legal one asks. red lights flashing round of a night time could be very distracting for other drivers, I want red, green, yellow, blue, pink and poka dot. please.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    It seems there are others for sale in the UK as well

    the packaging is ever so slightly different but price the same. I hope you did not pay for sole rights.

    Jim - Not sure if your site is up and running yet but not sure it is working right. Just clicked to buy a pack of 4 but it came up as a £7.50 single item.

    It would be good if the sensors alerted you in the motorhome whilst driving, you would only be able to check when you are not driving if pressure was lost....Just a thought

    I think that would be a bit pricey. My cars have that system

    Good luck with the new venture Jim hope it goes well:thumb::thumb:
    Remember your old mates when your a millionaire:BigGrin:

    I'll be getting a set for the Hymer and a set for the GS, tyre pressures on m/bikes are even more critical than cars and vans.

    Yes, there are plenty of systems that do that and for motorhomes with a pressure above 65psi you will need to pay around £200. Even then, the product is not as good and the margins of reporting are high and wide. This reports at just 4psi.

    If you've ever had one you'll know the in-car ones can take a while to report, ie you can be miles down the road before you know you have a problem. This system, just a glance around the vehicle and you know. :thumb:

    No problem, there are radio pressure monitors out there, but ten times the price.
