"I performed multiple pitot-static tests each day," said an inventor from Yelm, Wash. "During this time, I saw a need for a way to avoid chasing inaccurate readings when the fault was actually in the test set hoses and adapter."

He created a prototype for the PITOT-STATIC TESTER ADAPTER PLUG to seal the tube adapter connected to the tester. The unit reduces the risk of adapter damage to ensure that the system does not have a leak. It eliminates the possibility of an aircraft test being inaccurate. The accessory saves the user from having to disconnect and reconnect the tube adapter for each test. It fulfills the need for an improved coupling saver for pitot and dual static coupling adapters. Furthermore, the invention preserves the integrity of the hose couplings of such devices.

The original design was submitted to the Seattle office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
