Is it the two black bits at the end? Sorry I am a bit confused

I have attached mine:

Two black bits on the end, they open the valve. The one you're holding is the standard bayonet that will fit most types (certainly my Honwave) but the Blue Wind (Chinese sib) I owned definitely needed the type with the lugs.

Thank you so much for your patience

So does that standard one need a pin in a middle or is it fine like that?

Like I said I am having difficulty inflated while the valve is closed so maybe my adapter is broken.

You may be right !

This is the valve. Not sure if you can recognize the valve fitting

What pump are you using ?

Some cheap pumps, especially 12v ones, dont have the power to force the valve open and inflate the tube.

The pump should just blow past the rubber valve then back pressure keeps it shut but the dust cap is the final seal the button pressed in and turned is for fully deflating the hose end should turn in to stop it popping out under pressure whilst pumping up.

Although not one of the best one I am using the quick pump from Coleman.
It does work very well when the pushpin is in deflating mode.

Could anyone let me know if I have the right adapter or if is missing a part or if it's fine for the valve.

It is indeed a bit tricky to push the adapter in as it is just slightly bigger than the pushpin.

I am just confused as I have never owned an inflatable before.

If that's the type for their airbeds, it's not going to generate enough pressure to open the valve on its own.

I modified my HR adapter with a cross-piece of wire to work with a Bravo HP pump. Not a big job, but takes a bit of measuring to get it right. Make sure your drill bit is slightly smaller than wire diameter so the wire doesn't keep falling out.

my adaptor has no cross wire and with a bravo hp pump has no problem fully inflating my honwave it also works great on my vango airbeam caravan awning that uses similar valves .I think the pump your using isn't generating enough pressure
