Inflates SUPs just fine, but requires troubleshooting and MacGyvering. I really want to love this pump, but it’s got some design issues that make using it kind of wonky. First, the good stuff. I bought the pump to inflate two SUPs and, once I figured out the kinks I was able to figure out, it inflated one of my SUPs (404) very quickly and up to 14 PSI with no challenges. Now the bad stuff: the SUP inflator adapter did not initially work with either my 404 or my Lakeshore SUP. After some troubleshooting, I was able to figure out that the gasket on the pump’s SUP adapter was put on upside down. Once I flipped the gasket over, the adapter fit on my 404 just fine. But it still wouldn’t fit on my Lakeshore SUP. I haven’t figured out the solution to that one yet and still have to inflate that SUP manually. The second problemis that the SUP adapter for the pump only connects to the hose via a pressure fitting, which has a tendency to come apart once you get close to SUP PSI. So you gotta sit there and hold the pieces together until the SUP reaches…

Cheap Parts Makes Failure Likely I have carefully used this pump 4 times since buying it recently. First, the H3 Halkey-Roberts valve adapter broke by when I simply inserted the air hose into it, then the positive battery clip broke when I removed it from my truck’s battery post. Either one of these failures would have left me stranded had I not been home when they occurred. I fixed the battery terminal clips by simply replacing them with some others I had–and the H3 adapter worked for a couple of inflations after I taped it tightly with electrical tape. However it recently failed badly during a vacation in a remote location.The pump itself has been impressive so far–and inflates my SUPs in about 10 minutes. However, due to poorly-made, cheap parts I can’t recommend it due to the potential of breaking in the field.
