Ken-Tool says its Universal Master TPMS Sensor Hardware and Tool Service Set for tire pressure monitoring system sensors is an all-inclusive kit that includes hardware and application-specific tools for servicing valve-stem TPMS sensors.
The service set is a 152-piece assortment of 15 hardware kits that will handle 90 percent of all U.S. TPMS-equipped vehicles, according to the company; all of the necessary application-specific hardware — including the valve core and cap, grommet nut, gaskets, washers and valve stems — is provided. The kit also includes replacement rubber “snap-in” valve stem kits with new sensor mounting screws that are now standard equipment on many late-model GM vehicles.
In addition to the hardware kits, the set also includes all of the specialized hand tools needed to service and replace the hardware on TPMS sensors, Ken-Tool says. Provided in the set is a precision valve stem torque wrench, and two deep-well sockets for the ferrule nuts. Also included is a torque tool for the rubber snap-in valve screws, and a valve core torque driver used to seat the valves. The set also features Ken-Tool’s proprietary TPMS Sentry sensor service tool designed to ensure the sensor is held securely during the tire-changing process.
Packed in a poly storage case, the set also includes 50 extra valve cores, 50 extra valve caps and a detailed laminated application/torque guide. For more information, go to www.kentool.com.
