IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
IMPROPER OPERATION OR MAINTENANCE OF THIS PRODUCT COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS
INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE. READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL WARNINGS AND OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS EQUIPMENT.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction
activities contains chemicals known (to the State of California) to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
lead from lead-based paints
crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products
arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your
exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment,
always wear MSHA/NIOSH approved, properly fitting face mask or respirator when using such tools.
When using air tools, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of personal
injury.
This Inflator is designed to inflate car tires, bike tires, ATV tires, sports equipment, air mattresses,
beach toys and other inflatables. Do not use for any purpose other than inflating. If you do so, bodily
harm or personal injury can occur.
Caution, allow inflator to cool down 10 minutes after each 10 minutes of continuous operation.
After using, turn off power.
The Inflator is not a toy. Keep away from children at all times.
Do not carry Inflator by the air hose or power cord as damage may occur.
Do not leave the Inflator unattended while in operation.
Do not overinflate. Please follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the item you are inflating
Keep the Inflator away from flammable areas/liquids at all times.
Do not operate the Inflator in wet or damp areas.
Operate the Inflator only with the attachments that are included.
USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if operation is dusty.
Household use only.
This product must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, the grounding reduces the
risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This product is equipped with
a cord having a grounding wire with an appropriate grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman when the grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or when in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided; if it does not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

air stream may contain carbon
monoxide, toxic vapors, or solid
particles from the tank. Breathing these
contaminants can cause serious injury
or death.
Air obtained directly from the inflator should
never be used to supply air for human
consumption. In order to use air produced
by this inflator for breathing, suitable filters
and in-line safety equipment must be
properly installed. In-line filters and safety
equipment used in conjunction with the

2. Make sure the outlet being used
has the same configuration as the
grounded plug. DO NOT USE AN
ADAPTOR. See illustration
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: Risk of Electrical
Shock. In the event of a short
circuit, grounding reduces the risk
of shock by providing an escape
wire for the electric current. This
Inflator must be properly grounded.
3. Inspect the plug and cord before
each use. Do not use if there are
signs of damage.
4. If these grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if in
doubt as to whether the inflator is
properly grounded, have the
installation checked by a qualified
electrician.
The Inflator is equipped with a cord
having a grounding wire with an
appropriate grounding plug (see
following instructions). The plug must
be used with an outlet that has been
installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING: Risk of Electrical Shock.
IMPROPER GROUNDING CAN RESULT
IN ELECTRICAL SHOCK. Do not modify
the plug provided. If it does not fit the
available outlet, a correct outlet should
be installed by a qualified electrician.
Repairs to the cord set or plug MUST be
made by a qualified electrician.
1. The cord set and plug with this unit
contains a grounding pin. This
plug MUST be used with a
grounded outlet.
Extension Cords
IMPORTANT: The outlet being used
must be installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
If an extension cord must be used, be sure
it is:
a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3blade grounding plug, and a 3-slot
receptacle that will accept the plug on
the product
in good condition
no longer than 50 feet, and 16 gauge
(AWG) or larger. (Wire size increases

High Flow Inflator/Deflator
Adaptor
Deflation Position
For larger inflatable items, you
may wish to use the High Flow
Inflator/Deflator Adaptor as follows:
1. Connect the Quick-Connect Universal
Valve Adaptor to high flow
inflator/deflator adaptor as shown.
4. Insert nozzle into inflatable and start
inflator.
