Alligator - Gator Caps

Alligator – Gator Caps logoAlligator’s inflate-thru valve caps are a time, money and labor saving solution that can reduce your tire pressure check time by up to 65%.

As an industry leader and expert in flow-thru cap technology, Alligator outperforms all other flow-thru caps on the market.  You can inflate, deflate and gauge directly thru the valve cap saving time during inflation and pressure checks. The caps seal like a high pressure cap, yet offer the convenience of an inflate-thru extension.

V2B and DS-P vs. Other Inflate-Thru Valve Caps

There are many lower cost, lower quality inflate-thru valve caps on the market today. At first glance they may resemble the V2B and DS-P “Gator Caps”; however, for durability, performance, and resistance to contamination and corrosion, there is no substitute for the genuine German design and quality of the V2B and DS-P.

The Myers V2B and DS-P

  • Seal is located away from the opening
  • Contamination does not have a direct path to the seal
  • Contamination is directed away from the airflow
V2B and DS-P Gator Caps

Other inflate-thru valve caps

  • Seal is located near the mouth of the cap
  • Contaminants have a short and direct path to the seal
  • Contaminants are sucked into the valve core, restricting airflow and causing leaks that lead to early failure
