I needed an adapter to use my BRAVO 12volt air compressor on my inflatable SUP to get to 15psi. The BRAVO came with adaptors but you have to hold them on the SUP air connection and it sometimes slips off and you cannot walk away while it pumps. I am able to put this adaptor on the pump and it fits securely on my SUP so I can now get other things ready while it pumps up.

I did have to modify the adaptor so it would compress the push valve on the SUP's air connector otherwise for the pump to get the air in, it would always go to stage two of high pressure and low volume and would heat up.

Where the adaptor's rubber ring gaskett is I drilled holes and put a 2mm aluminum rod cut to size. Now when you twist the adaptor on it pushes in on the push valve and allows the pump to work more effeciantly.

I tried to use this adapter with my 12v pump to pump up an inflatable kayak (Aquaglide). But no air goes in the chamber unless the valve is open. Which means, of course, as soon as you disconnect the adapter, the air escapes.

The connector that came with the boat has a small bar in the middle that depresses the valve for filling. These do not.

    Service and delivery comments:

    If I had a company, I would want my customer service to be exactly like yours. A person answered my phone calls (no machine) in one or two rings. Staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. My order was back ordered and your staff explained the situation fully. I added an additional item to the back order and that was done smoothly and sent with the original order as I requested. I got an email stating when to expect delivery and it arrived as stated. All was in perfect condition. Thanks for such great service.

    The perfect adaptor.

    Comments about New Short H-R Fill Adapter:

    Negative reviews are from folks with no ingenuity. Five minutes with a small drill will fix the auto valve open to close deal. Remove the seal drill two small holes opposite one another, tread a small wire through the holes and fold them over, replace seal. Can modify it faster than talk about it. Some folks may not want to use that feature so it's for everyone. Perfect in every way!

    Used to fill a Boardworks inflatable SUP. The pump supplied with the board is nearly useless
    I used urethane glue to reduce the size of the attached tubing to the correct size to fit a Schrader valve from a tire inner tube. Now can connect to a bike floor pump or compressor.

        This adapter is good quality and I like the grip that makes it easy to insert. Unfortunately there is no bar inside the adapter to press down on the SUPs valve stem to open it for inflation.

        • New Short H-R Fill Adapter

          Q:

          I have a Boardworks SHUBU iSUP. It has a H-R valve with markings: "H3" and "VB-V05-H3-2". The cover plug has a measurement of 21.4mm from the lower gasket surface to bottom end. Is this the correct adapter? Let me know if other measurements would help.

          Q:

          I have both a two stage K-Pump and an old NRS Wonderpump(which still works well on Leafield valves after 15 plus years and occasional maintenance). I now own a SUP(Badfish MCIT) with the new short Halkey Roberts valves. My KPump has a universal adaptor which works but the pump has to be held perfectly straight to ensure a proper fit. The Wonderpump doesn't fit at all. Looking for advice in adapting Wonderpump for use in filling the SUP and for enhancing use of the KPump. Will this adapter work with either/both pumps and how do I attach it to my pump?

            A:

            Yes, Bob, this adapter locks into the New Short and you should be able to adapt it to both of those pumps. The Wonder Pump won't be able to reach the high pressure your SUP requires, but your K-Pump should do the job.

          My air pump came with an adapter which looks like yours and snaps into my H-K valve but has no internal piece with which to depress the valve spring and allow air to enter. Does your adapter have such an internal valve spring depressor?

            Chas, sounds like you've got the right adapter for your H-K valve. The adapter doesn't have to push the plunger and spring down; the air pressure from the pump will push it down and let air in. Then when you quit pumping the valve will seal and hold the air in. Booyah!

            The valve is designed to allow air to enter without the internal spring being depressed. None of my adapters engage the spring. The spring is there for deflation purposes.

            A:

            No. You push and turn the valve before inserting the air pump adapter to keep it open for the initial fill, then close it when it feels full. Then top it off with the valve closed - the air pressure depresses it.

            A:

            This adaptor may or may not push the spring depressor down, depending upon the height of the valve.  This adaptor twists onto the valve stem to secure it while you inflate through the valve and does sometimes push the depressor down so when you detach it, you have to immediately push on the depressor to stop air from escaping.   This was too long for my valves, so I had to use a hack saw and remove about 1/8" from the end and it fits my valves perfectly.

            It will work just fine.  Compressed air will push the valve spring down.

            No, the valve doe not have the cross piece you speak of. Have seen this on
            some adapters, but the pump air pressure is enough to force air in and open
            the valve. Works great.

            I know this adapter works with the Fish Cat "Cataraft" I own. There are two adapter that are very similar. One will work with both valve, one with only it's own design. Buy a couple of extra ones and use a key ring to secure it to the frame of your raft. People will "borrow" them if they get a chance. RB

            Hi, unless the valve matches the characteristics shown on this page - http://www.nrsweb.com/repair/hrvalves.asp - it's not a Halkey-Roberts New Short. Please check with the boat's manufacturer to determine what kind of valve you have. If that doesn't work, send us photos of the valve and we'll try to help identify it.

            Looks like that will be the fitting for your Rampage. I am only going on
