I usually don't even review stuff, so you know it's bad. This thing is incredibly cheap, and by that I mean cheaply made. I believe the frame originally bent within two or three weeks of buying it. I kept bending it back so I could continue to use it, but last night was the final straw. It would not stay unbent long enough for me to use it, so I finally gave up and threw it in the trash. Not only that, but it's incredibly difficult to use. Even before it bent, it would always tend to fall over after one or two pumps. Save your money and buy a quality floor pump.
Will bend and won't pump in 10 to 20 uses only
My pump that i had bought in store, bent within 20 uses. Regret buying it.
small, can break, so use with control
Pros: It's small, so fits easily in a car trunk. Its air cylinder is larger than the MVP Super Line P707B foot pump, and needs only 25-30 pumps for 1 PSI of car tire pressure compared to 50 or so for the MVP pump. Cons: Because it's small, it takes a lot more pumps than a full-size hand pump would take. Can break if used carelessly. When the first one I bought broke, I bought another one, so yes, I'd recommend it to others if small size matters. If you have room for a full-size pump, they're about the same price and would pump faster. Footballs, basketballs: Mine came with the usual metal needle attachment. I'm not sure what the plastic piece would be used for (balloons?). WARNING: Maybe it has one, but I found NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND on the tag attached to the one I just purchased. What broke on mine: the steel bar midway along the lever arm that holds the air cylinder in place. It might be replaceable with a steel bolt and nut, but I think the bar is curved enough to prevent that solution. How it broke: I was pumping quickly and not being careful to pump straight downward. Stomping downward but significantly to the right (not intentionally) is what bent the lever arm enough to break the bolt. If the air pressure dial pointer comes loose (say, because the pump gets banged hard, such as being hit repeatedly with a hammer while trying to bend the bolt holding the air cylinder) (the pointer never came loose in normal use), the pastic dial cover comes off easily, allowing one to reattach the pointer. Helpful hint: hold the back of the Airstomper in place with the tip of the toe of the shoe on your non-stomping foot. Done right, the toe won't be hit as you pump.
Don't waste your money!!!
I tried to blow up a basketball. The gauge did not work properly and the ball deflated more than filled up with air. When I tested the needle, no air was coming through. It was tough to step on the pump which caused it to bend. I hope I can return it and get my money back. I'm extremely disappointed as is my 5 year old who now has a basketball that is more deflated than when we bought it originally.
The 2 attachments that comes with this pump doesn't fit properly. Both have threads that indicates what it can be screwed in, but it doesn't. So in order for me t to pump a ball, I have to hold, the ball the valve and the pump. on top of that you have to hold it all just right for it to pump.
