Mine also needs a tool to remove because the case spins freely. I'd like to be able to replace my own batteries. BTW, I re-installed all 10 of my sensors today to get things ready for FROG. I found out from TST that when the sensors have pressure on them, they are using the battery. So, I only put them on when I'm towing.

We originally ordered the flow thru sensors but didn't like how far they stuck out from the tires so we exchanged them for the anti-theft non-flow thru ones.

The system was fairly easy to set up and we are on our second year with the same sensor batteries. Batteries are user replaceable and system ships with extra seals in case they are needed.

We've been happy with our EEZ TPMS system and would recommend it to others.
I also have the EEZ system. Works great and has a bigger display than the TST.

I leave mine sensors on all the time, I never know when we take a trip besides the sensors are on my truck

Why do you have to check the pressure? Isn't that what the monitors are for?

I last used my camper at the end of February and I knew it was going to be 5 or 6 months before I used it, so it made sense to save the batteries. It cost $20.00 per sensor to get the batteries replaced! I have 6 sensors on my truck and 4 on my camper.

Have the TST 507 System without the flow thru, however have had to buy 3 replacement sensors so far at around $50 each. Think we will be looking at a system with lifetime warrenty.

I have had my 507 for a long time, seems like a long time, I have replaced the batteries once and I never lost a sensor. Worth every penny I paid for system

I double check the sensors at least once a month with a digital gauge. I like to be sure everything is working properly. Just me
