EZ Tire deflator and TPMS stems

Hi Guys - I am planning to take a trip to Rausch Creek soon and for the first time use a jeep that has a TPMS - can you use an ez deflator on the valve stems of a TPMS equipped tire? I have the Currie EZ Tire Deflator (http://www.currieenterprises.com/ces...9.aspx?id=1236)
but don't want to break a valve stem by a "yeah I should have known better" scenario.

It won't hurt your sensors

It probably won't hurt the sensors, but you may feel the need to pound your fist on the dash a few hundred times as the tire pressure changes, depending on how much change is required before the dang audible kicks in reminding you like every 15 seconds (that is, if your stereo is on). [I just had three sensors replaced including the spare but the spare reports "low pressure" way too frequently. I need to have the spare checked out obviously.]

Ah ha! I have a solution for that - I have a superchips tuner to turn off the TPMS!
