Happy Boating
Sorry, I misunderstood your question - it is indeed the twist and lock type, I was referring to the other end of the adapter and connecting it to my existing pump hose

My Suzuki SIB also has this type of fitting and its been giving me trouble with getting a reading on any gauge so i dont know when the floor is full? Any suggestion on a manual pump that will give me a reading would be amazing!

I tried using an adapted bike pump and a Bravo pressure gauge on a foot pump but neither worked?

With my boat came a plug in meter to read the pressures, you simply screw it into the value. My electric pump has a setting on it so that it automatically stops when it reaches that pressure, I cannot imagine pumping up my boat manually - get an electric pump!!

I have a battery powered pump that fills and deflates it in no time (no gauge) but its just finishing off the floor to 0.80 bar that i'm struggling with...trying to do things on the cheap too!

Just upgrade your pump, mine was 100 and automatically inflates all the way to 0.8 and stops all by itself!

Or get the Bravo alum 4 hand double action pump that comes with a gauge. Perfect for tube and air deck inflation, works much better than any other foor pump.

Air valve adapeters must keep pressed at all times the middle air valve pin in order to achieve a reading.

Happy Boating

I've got the bravo stirrup pump with gauge attached in the top..the gauge only gives the reading on the downward pump then resets to zero. Is there any way of maintaining the pressure for me to read it when pumping has stopped?

Can you post some pics of that pump of yours to check that model, is that a hand or foot pump with gauge ?

Happy Boating

It's one of these, the little gauge screws into the middle of the handle.

I think I've just realised the problem and it's an obvious one.. The one way values on the tubes will mean the pressure isn't in the gauge won't it..

How can I get round this without losing pressure when detaching the pump though?
