What is the hole in the side of the regulator?

This is a relieving port that allows the regulator to be used on dead-ended applications Normally, you will neither feel nor hear air coming from this hole. If you do, the regulator diaphragm has a leak, or the needle valve under the cap is dirty, or the regulator is installed backwards.
