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.
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.
Worked fine for few times then the pressure gauge got loose and popped when I was pumping. Couldn't get it back as the gauge thread is made of plastic.
I am a little woman, 72 years of age and when I tried to use this piece of junk, the frame bent. The rubber cover for the petal fell off and it would not stay on. This is a total waste of my hard earned money.
Worked as expected,good item to have around for when you have to inflate something.How ever i think if you tried to inflate a car tire with this your leg might fall off.But for bicycle,wheelbarrow,dolly,or any other inflateable this should do the trick.
