Review by Bigplanz on December 1st, 2014
The inflator I have doesn't look like this one. The one I have is model 69284, lists for $29.99. I keep it in the back of the van in case I have a flat or am low on air pressure. This is the 2nd one I have bought. The first one failed one day when I disconnected the air hose from a tire without turning off the compressor. It made a horrible clacking sound and wouldn't pump air after that. I bought a second one and have been careful to a) turn it on before screwing the hose to the valve stem, and b) turn it off before disconnecting the air hose. I don't use it much but when I need it, it's right there. It comes with a little case, a slinky air hose with a quick connect fitting on one end and a screw in valve stem connector. The screw in type is much appreciated, because you just screw it in and let the tire slowly fill with air. You don't have to hold the connector to the valve stem. It takes about 5 minutes to bring a 15 inch tire from 18 PSI to 35 PSI. The little compressor does get warm, though.

If you catch it on sale, with a coupon, it is a great deal. Treat it correctly and it should work fine. At only $20, I didn't bother with the warranty.
