I've tried a bunch of these over the years. Some look good, but break quickly. This one is small, simple and tough. It works when you need it.

Great CO2 head!

This shiny object works great, it is so easy to regulate the flow and it will hold the leftover CO2 for days. Its small and light. You can't ask for anything more.

The simplest, no fail, CO2 inflater I've used.
by Marc

I have a Lezyne and Innovations valve inflators, but have replaced both with the PDW inflator. The PDW is the easiest, quickest, and fail-safe nozzle compared to the other 2. I inflate in 2 steps. At step 1, my PDW allows me to have very slow, controlled release (twist the valve knob) to minimally inflate the inner tube, but with enough air control to see the tire is properly seeded inside, around the rim. My Lezyne and Innovations is simple push, but each push comes in full bursts. I found these bursts are more difficult to control in my step 1. Step 2 is my more robust, but still controlled, release to reach my desired PSI. There are certainly experts using Lezyne and Innovations, but I'm not one of them. I don't flat that often. But, when I do, the PDW has ridden me of all my previous fumbling and frustrations I had with the other 2 brands.

I was looking for a design that would fit my road bike's presta and my spouse's and daughter's schrader valves and this one fit the bill.

Having control of air flow is what it is about! Slow or fast inflation is crucial, and this Shiny object allows this.

This is the only valve I've ever used that actually holds pressure after it's pierced the C02 cylinder. I've used the partial pressure after a couple of months of initial use. I use it and several friends use them as well, all have had the same good luck with these valves.

This can be throttled to a minimal flow for gentle control of inflation.

Works great for a short time
by michel courtoy

Works great when it does, I like the onoff control of CO2 flow. But after a few uses the rubber O seal that wraps around the stem literally blew up.

Works perfectly

It works as described. I had a flat yesterday and busted out the Shiny Object. I screwed in a CO2 and inflated the tire without the internals freezing up and with super control over the CO2 flow into the tire. There also a pressure relief hole so once you back out the cartridge it doesn't want to take off like a rocket. It slowly and safely bleeds off the excess CO2. Worth every penny.

I haven't used it and hope I don't have to. The real test will be if it works when I need it or will it be unusable because I didn't use it and now the knob won't turn cuz it's gummed up with mystery funk.

item broke on 3rd use
by Dave
Cycling Enthusiast
Auburn, ca

bought this in Jan 2015 - Used 3 times. First use - worked as advertised. Second use - had difficulty with turn knob and burned 2 co2 cartridges to inflate tire. rd use - knob kept turning and never disbursed CO2 - never got my tire inflated. I went through another 2 cartridges and still had a mostly flat tire. Luckly a buddy had another inflator which worked by twisting the cartridge to engage rather than a knob which just spun (open or closed).

I love being able to accurate the amount of air going into the tube so that I can more precisely inflate the tube. Would recommend for anyone

Shiny object works very well
by outdoor guy

With the Shiny object you can easily dial in the amount of co2 you want to put into a tire. Great for checking to make sure you don't have any tube pinched under the bead. Then let it rip and fill the tire.
