Safety Warnings and Precautions
WARNING: When using product, basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to equipment.
Read all instructions before using this product!
1.
Store idle equipment. When not in use, the 12V Portable Air Compressor must be stored in a
dry location to inhibit damage from moisture and salt air.
2.
Check for damaged parts. Before using any appliance, any part that appears damaged
should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended
function. Check for any broken or damaged parts and any other conditions that may affect its
operation. Replace or repair damaged or worn parts immediately.
3.
Replacement parts and accessories. When servicing, use only identical replacement parts.
Use of any other parts will void the warranty.
4.
5.
Do not let children play with or use the 12V Portable Air Compressor.
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas invite
accidents.
Do not operate the Portable Air Compressor in explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Electrical products create sparks which may
ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating the Air Compressor.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Do not abuse the Power Cord. Never use the Power Cord to carry the Air Compressor. Keep
the Power Cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged Power
Cords immediately. Damaged Power Cords increase the risk of electric shock.

SPECIFIC PRECAUTIONS FOR THIS PRODUCT
1.
Do not use this product with the car/truck/motorcycle engine running.
2.
Do not use this product on high pressure tires (large trucks, trailors, tractors, etc.).
3.
Do not exceed the tire air pressure recommended by the tire manufacturer.
4.
Do not leave this product unattended while the unit is running.
5.
Do not use this product continuously for more than 15 minutes. Allow this product to
cool approximately 5 minutes after inflating a tire or other inflatable.
6.

Do not operate the Emergency Light continuously for periods of one hour or more.
Doing so will cause the unit to overheat, and may damage the unit and/or cause
personal injury. It is recommended that the Emergency Light only be operated
continuously for up to 45 minutes. Then, turn off the Emergency Light and allow
the unit to cool for a minimum of 10 minutes before re-use.

NOTE: In the event the tire is totally deflated it may have separated from the
tire rim. In this case, you may need to jack up the vehicle prior to inflating the tire. If
this occurs, make certain to follow all safety instructions for the jack and for the
motor vehicle.
The Air Pressure Gauge
1.
The Air Pressure Gauge (36) is located on the top of the Portable Air Compressor-(see
Figure 3) and is calibrated in P.S.I. (Pounds Per Square Inch).
2.
The maximum air pressure this unit will produce is 300 P.S.I.
3.
Explosion Danger! Do not inflate the air pressure beyond the pressure recommended by
the manufacturer of the item you are inflating. Over inflating a tire or inflatable may result in
serious personal injury and property damage.
4.
To obtain an accurate air pressure reading, turn off the Portable Air Compressor
when reading the gauge.
The Emergency Light
1.
The Emergency Light is located at the front of the Portable Air Compressor-see Figure 3.
