    I got the err message on the front, replaced the batteries and it's fine.

    It's a cr1632 battery. You do need the little tool to replace it tho.

    Thanks for the responses. Dang, I didn’t bring that tool! Maybe I’ll improvise. If not I will just go without it. Like in the “good old days”.

    Got it apart easily without the special tool just using the points of some wire cutters to grip the serrations.

    But of course now I’m not near any place likely to have the battery...

    Hi my rear sensor is showing er on the display. I guess the battery is dead but I can't find my manual on how to replace it. Can you post a link where I can download the PDF manual thanks.

    Im sorry I have not been on here for a bit. Other than dpike we have not heard much of batteries going dead.. Would you mind calling in and speaking with Greg? also email at greg@cyclopsadventuresports.com.. I am concerned it is not the batteries. I will work on getting the instructions on the site.

    Question? Is the 14mm nut underneath the sensor needed to stabilize / lock the sensor on or are they more of an anti-theft measure? It would be REALLY nice not to have to loosen and tighten that nut every time
    you perform a pressure check. Just wondering..... Thanks, Dan

    As far as the tool to open the sensor for battery replacement goes. My front tire started showing an ER the other day. I removed the sensor from the bike, popped the very bottom piece off the sensor ( the piece that "keys" into the top ), turned the bottom piece upside down and used it as a wrench to unscrew the top. worked great. Let me guess, the bottom piece isn't supposed to come off? :)

    Hay Dan. I think the nut is a lock/anti theft jam nut. I think you could get away without it. When you screw the sensor down it makes a fairly firm seal to its sealing washer/o ring. It feels quite secure......

    Thanks, I think I will give it a try. I am not really worried about theft. I would rather buy / carry a spare sensor than keep loosening and tightening those nuts.

    Hi Ninjarider, the jam nut is not necessarily for theft as much as keeping the lock tab on the sensor seated. thanks drv.

    Well it's been over two years and thousands of units sold.. Thank you.
    Many tell me it's their favorite thing they have added to their bikes. I love to hear the stories about how the product has saved the day or just helped them get stopped prior to being totally out of air.
    As I have mentioned many times, you do not have to purchase the Cyclops brand, but please think about any TPMS. It has saved my ass several times and may also help you out in a big way someday.
    Happy to announce we just launched the F reading unit, Now you can select to use F or C temp readings.

    Wow! Website says by buying the Centigrade only unit you can save $30! It will also improve your math skills and international relations abilities by buying the unit that uses Centigrade! Making the world safer and bringing us closer. :-)

    Seriously, I have had mine for many trouble-free years now and it has worked great. I would not ride a bike without one.

    i'm with the above group, i've had them since you originally released it with no issues at all. it's been reliable and i was confident enough with dependability and accuracy that i sealed my spoked wheels and run tubeless front and rear with an extra bit of assurance all is holding well.

    The lock nut is designed to prevent loss or theft of the sensor. I don't install them on my personal bikes.

    Thanks for sure.. one thing I always ran into was the C reading was fairly close to PSI ratings, sometimes making me do a double take.Im liking the F version.

    Thanks, I hadn't got up the nerve not to run them without the nut. This will really simplify my life since I check pressures often.
