Like the other reviewers, I thought this was the greatest idea. But the problem is that they don't actually work. Countless times I could feel my handling was a bit off, saw the "Accu-Pressure Safety Cap" in the green (ok), only to find when I applied the gauge that it wasn't. I even bought the 32 psi for my 29psi tires, because they only drop from green to yellow at 4lbs under, so that if it went below even by 1 lb, I'd want to know! Wouldn't you? The only thing worse than an underinflated tire, is thinking it's fine when it isn't! This false sense of security is worse than not knowing, because it keeps you from getting down there and checking it with an accurate gauge and getting the pressure up there where it belongs. This has happened so many times, that I now just think of them as a colorful and expensive valve cap! Now that I think about it, they have NEVER shown when the pressure has been low, in a year and a half and 10,000 miles...
