Listener feedback and announcement

I remember reading a review from a guy that tested a whole bunch of pressure gauges and found this one to be very affordable and accurate. I bought 3. I believe the digital gauges are remarkably accurate, I believe their website is here or something. It also has a car escape tool as part of it as gadget.
