    Replacement clear lenses.

    Has anyone found a resource for replacement lenses for a normal yellow jacket manifold? I haven't had any luck, the only opiton appears to be replacing the gauge or the entire manifold set.

    Every Supply House in Town has them down here.....United has them, I believe it is the NRP Brand, but they work just fine.

    Ok, these aren't quite the regular gauges. They are the Yellow Jacket hybid 410a/22 ones with the metal back and the "pop in" clear plastic with a small tab at the bottom of the plastic.

    I have 2 sets that I fell in love with. These things are good for any a/c and ok for refridgeration.

    I've had those gauges since last year sometime, I dunno how you treat them but mine are still in very good condition I treat em like a baby when I bring em out. I mainly use them for R410a, oh by the way did yours come with the hoses that have the ball valves with them?

    those lenses aren't as reliable and durable as the screw on type same thing happened to a set i had. i just put liquid filled gauges on the manifolds, made one dedicated 410a and one dedicated 22 set then a few months latter i bought two sets of titans and sold the old ones to a guy for 150 bucks

    The ball valves were an upgrade. I use a high side one on all may gauges, and a high and low when dealing with multiple 410a systems.
