Victor Product FAQ
Safety & Emergency/Winter
  Q: What exactly is in the emergency kit?

A: There are different items in all of the kits, but in general, they will include: a booster cable, flashlight, first aid kit, rain poncho, car care guide, accident document guide, emergency contact info, cable ties, tire sealant, and a carry case. Some of the kits include a 2-1 screwdriver, a HELP sign, a space blanket, batteries, glow stick, electrical tape, fuse kit, siphon pump, road flare, and gloves.

Q: Are safety triangles sold in pairs?

A: They can be purchased separately or in a 3-pack case.

Q: Does the emergency flashlight tool require batteries or is it activated by a cranking mechanism?

A: The flashlight requires 2 “AA” batteries.

Q: Is the lock de-icer strictly for use on car locks?

A: No, it can also be used as a lubricant and cleaner for other locking devices (padlocks, etc.).
Tire Gauges
  Q: Does the tire pressure reading lock in on your tire pressure gauges?

A: Yes.  

Q: What does the 0.0 code on my digital tire gauge mean?

A: A code reading all zeros is an error code; repeat instructions carefully, making sure that there is a good seal between the nozzle and valve stem (there should be no hissing sound of escaping air).

Q: What does the code “Lo” mean on my digital tire gauge?

A: When the display reads “Lo” it means that the power in the lithium cell has been depleted.  

Q: How accurate are your tire gauges?

A:  Our research indicates that no tire gauge is 100% accurate, each one has a +/- difference. For example, the digital gauges have a +/- 1 PSI. Pencil gauges are +/- 2 PSI and dial gauges are +/- 3 PSI. One thing to also remember is that if you check your tire pressure after the car has been moving versus when the car has not been moved there could be a +/- difference of 10 PSI, depending on when you check the tire pressure.
Tire Hardware
  Q:  Do you make any other size pressure monitoring valve caps?

A: At this time, we only offer the 32 PSI and 36 PSI pressure monitoring valve caps.

Q: Can I use the tire pressure monitoring valve caps on my motorcycle or off road vehicle?

A:  No.  There is a warning on all of our pressure indicator valve cap packaging advising that this product is not intended for motorcycle or off-road vehicle usage.

Q: Can I install the Tire Pressure Monitoring Valve Caps on my vehicle if it already has TPMS sensors?

A:  We do not recommend using this product with vehicles equipped with factory installed pressure sensors.
Tire Inflators
  Q: Where is the on/off switch on the Victor Quik Aire Mini Tire Inflator?

A:  There is no on/off switch on this model. There was an error on the instruction form. Simply plug the power adapter into the cigarette lighter and turn on your auxiliary power to work the unit.

Q: Can you plug inflators into a house or just a car?

A: Just a car. It is 12 volts.

Q: How do I get the coupler onto the compressor of the Victor Quik Aire Heavy Duty Tire inflator?

A:  Grab onto the coupler and pull backwards. Keep the pressure on the coupler and push it onto the connector on the compressor, then release. The coupler will be attached. Do the same process to remove.
Tire Repair
  Q: How long does the rubber cement take to cure?

A: The cure time is anywhere between 9-24 hours, depending on the weather conditions when applied.

Q: I have the Tubeless Tire Repair kit, how do you install the plug?

A: First, use the one closed in tool to puncture the hole and smooth out the sides. Next, take one of the plugs and thread it through the open ended tool. Coat the plug with a generous amount of rubber cement (included with kit). Force the plug through the hole in the tire but leave a little bit of it sticking out, do not push plug all the way through. Allow time for the plug to set before applying any air to the tire. It is always a good idea to apply more rubber cement to the plug once it has been installed.
