I have an eBay special Chinese SIB and this is the valve adapter.

A friend of mine also has a Chinese SIB and has lost this fitting that attaches to the valve.

For now we are sharing the one adapter.

Of course being Chinese and eBay there is no after sales support.

I have tried the search function on here and on Google and have not succeeding in finding one of these or even identifying it.

Any leads would be most appreciated.

Is the tang extending beyond the bayonet part functional/necessary? Looks like a Halkey-Roberts adaptor aside from that.

Jyasaki, no idea if it is useful or not. Haven't use mine for a while but will have a look. I did think it looked like a HR as well. Maybe I need to take some measurements.

Searider, I probably should have messaged Ribshop first. Well I have now.

Haven't had any luck with Ribshop.

Any other ideas?

SIB is not very useful without air.

Can someone measure their HR adapter please?

The adapter I have is:

Diameter is just over 19mm.

Depth into the valve excluding the square tabs on the end is about 19mm.

Mine measures about 19.3mm diameter, 23.6mm from shoulder to tip, and 20.5mm from tip to gasket. The bayonet tab is 7.4mm, the opening behind the tab is 8.1mm, and the side slots are 4.4mm

Seasdes, thanks got that. The one in the link is a couple of mm too big, there is another one with the right diameter, it just looks too short. Will message them though as photos can be deceiving.
