How difficult is it to remove the locks? I haven't studied one yet, but I might be interested in removing mine also.

I have flow-through sensors and they don't have locks... just Allen head set screws (Allen wrenches included).

I called TST and was told that the flow-through needed metal stems but the screw on did not require metal stems. I took the locks off, it just made the sensors lighter. I have at least 75,000 miles on my 3500 Silverado and have never had a problem. The sensors on my tires stick out past the rims, at least on the truck. My 15 Cedar Creek has metal stems, I have G614 Goodyears on them and I run 110lbs.

TST 507 with flow thru sensors...
from
Great RV Products

5,000+ miles no problems... ordered extra batteries for when I need to replace them on the sensors

I put 1/2 inch thick sticky foam under the sensors to limit their travel with my rubber stems... when I buy new tires this summer I will get metal stems installed

I have had the 507 system on both my truck and my 5th wheel for almost two years now with out any problems. Last year on our Grand Canyon trip they saved us twice from being stuck on the side of the interstate when I had one tire on the camper pick up a nail and then three days later one of my truck tires picked up a screw. Both times I was alerted to the lower air pressure and was able to find a good exit off of the interstate to get the tires changed. Well worth the money that I spent just for the peace of mind. I also like monitoring the tire temperature as well as the tire pressure.

Made up my mind and finally bought a TST 507 system for my TT. Vulcan Tires has a good price and adds on an extra year of warranty for free fright now.

Good idea on the foam. I went down to a local tire store to have the wheels balanced and get metal stems, the tire guy says mine are heavy duty and should be able to take the extra weight. He says the metal stem is simply covered with rubber and the ones on it are rated for more than 65 psi. I don't think they had the right valve stems from my wheels, is more like it. I think I'll just do the foam for peace of mind.
