Bravo ~ halkey Roberts adaptor

I have my bravo superturbo bst12, and honwave, bought a halkey Roberts adaptor to fit

I presumed the adaptor would fit one of the bravo attachments, but it doesn't

Am I really supposed to cut the bravo tube to fit this?

Surely then the pump is useless for air beds etc

Why not use a piece of hose rubber as a jumper between the adaptor and the narrow nozzle fitting?

Yeh, I just found an 'air bed' adapt or that tightly fit the Honwave adapt or and then taped it up. Works a treat. Although my adaptor doesn't have the central pin to depress the valve when inflating which is slightly annoying.

Thanks for the tips

I've just "engineered" the worst looking bit off kit ever..... But I think it'll work

Bravo white plastic adaptor atteched to short hose pipe then pushed on to halkey roberts adaptor

Might need jubilee clips to secure it

I do like bravo inflators, but is it just me who thinks the bags should have more room for the hose and fittings?

Chucked mine in the bin on Day 1.

I have to swap various adaptors around - 11psi and below are "wee buns" in the pressure stakes - you can easily hold things together with Gorilla Tape or similar.

Gorilla tape and hammer - pretty much sums up my tool kit 🙄

>>>who thinks the bags should have more room for the hose and fittings?

I've made up a nice elec extension lead for mine which about doubles the cable length so you are not so tied by car battery position (luckily though current car of 2yrs has its battery in a boot side compartment which is ideal for drawing into a parking space and having the terminals to hand in a clean environment) and together with a hose adaptor set this pretty well fills the side pocket.

I never bothered to kink the hose back into the pocket from day one then I quickly doubled the hose length too so it definitely has to be carried separately now. When I had a Honwave I bought a genuine Honwave footpump hose with valve adaptor on the end as it wsn't that much more than just the adaptor from Honda. I still keep the hose extension just with the Honwave adaptor removed and Zodiac one substituted.

I use the Honwave hose joined to the Bravo hose using the white adapter. Extra length, works a treat and has never popped off in use.
