Outstanding tool

Having control of air flow is what it is about! Slow or fast inflation is crucial, and this Shiny object allows this.

It works

This is the only valve I've ever used that actually holds pressure after it's pierced the C02 cylinder. I've used the partial pressure after a couple of months of initial use. I use it and several friends use them as well, all have had the same good luck with these valves.

I've tried a bunch of these over the years. Some look good, but break quickly. This one is small, simple and tough. It works when you need it.

Great performance, low weight and very filling!

Great value. Works amazing. Worked the first time and continues to work everytime. Inflated tube with hand pump, finished with the inflator. No leaks, no trauma, just great results.

Works perfectly

It works as described. I had a flat yesterday and busted out the Shiny Object. I screwed in a CO2 and inflated the tire without the internals freezing up and with super control over the CO2 flow into the tire. There also a pressure relief hole so once you back out the cartridge it doesn't want to take off like a rocket. It slowly and safely bleeds off the excess CO2. Worth every penny.

item broke on 3rd use

bought this in Jan 2015 - Used 3 times. First use - worked as advertised. Second use - had difficulty with turn knob and burned 2 co2 cartridges to inflate tire. rd use - knob kept turning and never disbursed CO2 - never got my tire inflated. I went through another 2 cartridges and still had a mostly flat tire. Luckly a buddy had another inflator which worked by twisting the cartridge to engage rather than a knob which just spun (open or closed).

Works but will frost bite your fingers through your gloves

Not unlike other all metal inflators this works good but gets so cold that I couldn't turn it off or get it off my tire even with gloves on

The Best inflator

This is a really good inflator. The valve on the top really lets one regulate the flow of the CO2 gas into the tube, and if for some reason it's leaking around the valve you can cut off the flow quickly.

Light, easy to use, and consistent

This is far and away the best CO2 inflator I've used. Extremely light and compact, yet also extremely well-designed and durable. The wheel allows you to reliably control the onslaught of CO2 into your tire perfectly, and the simple T design positions the cartridge in a way that's easy to hold and get the inflator on and off the valve stem without a fuss. Can't ask for anything more.

Not a fan. . .

The product is advertised as pretty, compact, durable, and easy to use. Personally, I care less how pretty it is. Compact is somewhat important, but durability and ease of use are the key requirements. The first time I used it I thought it was easy to use. But the second time I used it (fixing my daughter's flat) it came apart and I have not been able to put it together. So save your money and get something less pretty that holds up to the demands of pressurizing a tire.

Needed in every bag

I got these to replace a co2 inflator that failed after years of service. I prefer an inflator that screws securely the presta Valve. But after using this one. It's not bad at all. Just hold on to valve and open the valve. Couldn't be simpler. I like the adjustable valve. You can just give a small shot to locate puncture it tube without dumping the co2 charge. With this co2 inflator I found it easier to locate, patch , replace the tube on one 16 g co2. It took a few times for me. But I can patch a tube now on one co2 in under 3 min.

Best inflator I've found.

I have a lot of Bikes and like to carry an inflator pre-packed on every bike so I don't have to change packs as I grab another bike. This is the best one I've found. The quality is 2nd to none and with BTD prices is an outstanding value. I Love that you can regulate the flow of CO2 to avoid freezing the valve or tube. It's nice and light too for you weight weenies. Get one you'll never look back.
