I have been using NAPA Quik Sensors, very good coverage with five part numbers. We use the NAPA TPMS tool that clones the Quik sensor to the original. Very fast and I have not encountered a problem yet. Previously I used OEM sensors and introduced when needed with Snap-On scanner. This presented three problems- (1) Delays obtaining the sensor from the dealer. (2) Smaller profit margin on the OEM sensor. (3) Added time introducing new sensor (when required). On the rare occurrence that a NAPA Quik sensor does not offer a sensor for an application then I use OEM.

we do a lot of sensors I started with alligator brand with the learning pad. I never had any problems just pain to run to the computer for every sensor. I now have the smart sensor pro . very easy to use and free updates. also can be used as a relearn tool. I have learned that alligator now has a hand held programmer. They get you buy having to use their sensors but I like the smart sensor pro sensors better.

Most new cars have those pesky tire pressure sensor monitors built into the tire. They can be a real pain with the dash lights constantly coming on letting you know that you tire pressure is low. This bypass is helpful for anyone with a bad spring in the sensor itself or with someone who changes their tires often.

I have been using the Redi sensors with not many problems. However I just purchased a Bartec tech400pro-ez TPMS tool, and it came with 20 free Schrader EZ-Sensors. So if all go good with the Schrader's I will be going with them.

I have been using VDO Redi-Sensors, no problems and they are a decent price. Do not do enough of them to stock any.


we use these as well, keep 4 of both popular numbers in stock, they have majority coverage and work well.

      A recent study, done by Harvard Business School, concluded that the real problem with attracting and retaining employees has more to do with the workplace environment, not pay or benefits. While the study did find that an adequate pay plan and offering an attractive benefits package did help with recruiting and retention, it’s not enough to satisfy the needs of employees, especially those of front-line workers.
      The study also stated that in 2021, many companies were convinced that giving raises, sign-on bonuses, and other perks would solve the worker shortage problem and prevent people from quitting. However, this strategy did not work. So, what does work regarding attracting quality people and keeping them employed?
      Essentially, it all comes down to the culture of your company.  Management: do all it can to consider the individual needs of your employees. Your employees want to feel that they have a voice, that their opinion counts, and that their role in your company is both respected and recognized. Yes, pay and a great benefits package will go a long way toward making your employees feel secure, but that’s only financial security. People want more than money.
      To attract and keep top talent requires creating a company that people feel proud to work for. You need to reach the hearts and minds of your employees. Become a leader that people are enthusiastic about working for. You want your employees bragging to their friends and family that your shop is a great place to work!
      Step one to attracting and retaining quality employees: Create an amazing workplace environment for your employees!  Trust me, happy employees make happy shop owners too!

      One of our listeners emailed in with the following question.
      I Always wondered why, when we have another marketing company review and grade our website, it always come out pretty crappy on the scorecard? From loading speed, to keywords, SEO, overall performance etc. I have used Lighthouse and some other things to gauge the performance, but the numbers never seem to match what the other party produces. I feel like some marketing companies use smoke and mirrors for selling their websites that really may not be any better than what we already have. I’m sure this is an issue for others too.
      We answer that question in this episode.
