OXFORD, N.C. (April 4, 2014) — Dill Air Controls Products L.L.C. has developed a preset torque tool designed specifically for installing the hex nuts on valve stems of tire pressure monitoring units (TPMS), thereby eliminating the need to adjust a torque wrench before and after installation.
Oxford-based Dill Air Controls said using preset torque tools “will save the technician time and minimize the chance of an error during the installation process.”
The company is offering its Dill TPMS Torque Tools in two packages: Dill 4065, with two preset Torque Tools, is a stand-alone kit for shops that already have a basic TPMS installation toolkit; and Master TPMS Toolkit (8200) that includes all the components to service most sensors and service kits on the road today.
“Listening to our customers daily is where new ideas originate,” said Mike Newton, Dill’s TPMS program manager. “We heard you asking for an easier way to install sensors and service kits, and…we have designed something you are really going to like.”
Dill Air Controls offers a range of TPMS, valve stem, air gauge and inflation devices, many of which it makes in the U.S.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
