    Trigger Guard For a Ryobi Air Compressor

    Recently I bought a Ryobi battery powered air compressor. Looking at the comments on this product, it is clear that many people accidently turn the motor on as they pick the unit up. This is not a deal breaker but is annoying. After a few weeks of use, I have found this air compressor to be very handy for maintaining pressure in our car's tires. However, I almost always hit that trigger switch at least once. This article presents a modification to the air compressor that reduces the chance of accidently hitting that trigger.
