There are two types of connector. It is therefore important when purchasing connectors to specify whether a Closed or Open end type is required.
A Closed End connector is used when air is supplied directly from a main air line (i.e. compressor or air receiver). A non-return valve unseats on connection to the tyre’s valve, allowing air to flow into the tyre. The handles on these connectors are RED in colour. Part MC1B-03.
An Open End connector is used with MK3 Tyre Inflator, PCL wall gauges and PCL portable gauges. This connector has a pin which unseats the tyre’s valve when in use. The handles on these connectors are BLACK in colour. Part MC1A-03.
