Red face tire service kit pump use for inflatables

The tire service kit how-to video says "You can also use the tire service kit pump to inflate balls, air mattresses, and other inflatables. You'll find adapters in a compartment on the bottom of the unit"


CONFUSINGLY, if you connect any of these adapters straight to the end of the hose, as you would with any normal pump, it will peg at max pressure and not inflate.


TO FIX: Add one more adapter, the short black plastic female+male Schrader threaded section to the end of the hose first. This will push in the valve stem, allowing the other inflation adapters to work.

WHY? I suppose this pump has an extra valve to keep the fix-a-flat goo from erupting out before it is engaged on the tire.

PS: kudos to Mopar for adding a presta bicycle inflation adapter, in addition to the usual ball and mattress adapters.
