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"

:confused:
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.

:nerd:
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.
