Video: Mean Mother Air Bypass Controller Features

Believe it or not, something as simple as inflating your tires can be an incredibly hazardous endeavor. Something that Australian off-road specialists Mean Mother hope to alleviate with their new Air Bypass Controller.

Featuring a zinc alloy body in chrome plating, a useful lever lock, and quick connect fittings for speedy installation and removal, the Mean Mother Air Bypass Controller is designed to offer enthusiasts quick, hassle-free tire inflation every time. Here is why you will want to consider one if you haven’t already.

Without a surge tank or a bypass valve in place, you run the risk of back-filling your air lines with pressure when stopping to inspect PSI read-outs. This causes unnecessary duress on the compressor and its various gaskets and valves, and makes accurate readings all that much more difficult, as stopping the flow of air typically offers the most precise results.

Simply clip the bypass controller in between the compressor line and the gauge/air chuck, and with the compressor engaged, air will begin venting into the environment. It is not until you press down on the lever that air will begin pumping into the tire itself, and upon release will offer accurate read-outs of the pressure within the tire. Average inflation times range from a minute and a half to two minutes, and with a handy locking lever allowing you to rest your hands, accurate inflation has never been so easy.

This means that using a lightweight 12-volt air compressor is no longer a hassle; there’s no more turning the compressor on or off every time to check the pressure. At $29.95, this useful little tool offers a lightweight, inexpensive alternative to lugging around large air compressor tanks, and if it is anything like the other products being offered by Mean Mother, is sure to be made from top-quality materials.
