    A friend sent me a picture of a tank test gauge for a yoke fitting that has a pressure operated coupler. Below is a picture, as described to me it self seals to the tank once pressure is applied. I suspect part of the input pressure is bled to a piston operated coupler. On the side there is a spring loaded purge button. The gauge is manufactured by Instrutek (Mexico gauge manufacture) but I do not know who makes the coupling device. Does anyone have any info on this?

    They are nice, but sometimes can be a PITA with beat up yoke valves.

    I really dislike both the tester and the fill whip, darn things will bite you hard if you are not careful.
