Not a good tool. Stay away !!!
- I've put it through the wringer
This seemed like a good idea, even though it is quite expensive as a CO2 chuck. I tested it with at home (sacrificing a CO2 cartridge), and it worked great. But when I needed it on a ride it didn't work. You see, the button had come off while it rode in my seat bag. I actually got burned twice on rides by this. The first time, I assumed I just didn't remember how to use it (which in fairness, was true - but the missing button didn't help). After that I looked it up, and made a mental note about the button. But today when I had a flat, I couldn't use the button because it had fallen off. Specialized should use thread-locker on the button, but from examining the threads I can see that none was used. Of course the button was not still in the seat bag (argh!). And of course both times I wasted a CO2 cartridge before having to use a micro pump. Another pro tip: if you use one of these and it fails you, unscrew the CO2 cartridge in a safe place and wear hearing protection - it comes off explosively unless you give it a few days to bleed down.
