    Inspired by the testing of the sensors prior to installation done by the OP of the above noted thread I assembled a sensor checker to be able to expose the sensors to pressure and verify their operation prior to installing on the wheel.

    Parts:
    (3" ABS plumbing parts)
    1 end cap
    1 clean out
    1 threaded plug (has a rubber gasket)
    1 bolt-in tire valve
