A CO2 Bike Tire Inflator is a handy device that can be used for filling up your bike tires and other inflatables. This article will provide you with information about how to use one, as well as the benefits of using it in general.  

What is a CO2 Bike Tire Inflator

A CO(Carbon Dioxide) Bike Tire Inflator is a tool that can be used to inflate the air in your tires. This type of inflator typically features a threaded stem on one end and an oversized valve on the other, which makes it easy to use with bike wheels. There are many different types of CO bicycle tire pumps available for purchase. some have long hoses or handles while others feature compact designs so they’re more portable. The most popular size for all bikes is between 16 inches and 18 inches. Most models come equipped with either Presta or Schrader valves, but there are also dual-head options for those who ride various bicycles at different times.

It’s important to always have a CO bike tire inflator on hand, even if you don’t need it every day. They make great emergency tools in the event that your tires go flat. It will allow you to keep riding instead of waiting for roadside assistance or walking home. The most common type is an air compressor which requires electricity and a power outlet so they usually are stationary devices at home garages or automotive shops. These can be expensive but there are also smaller versions called mini-CO bicycle tire pumps available for purchase online and in stores like Walgreens, Walmart, and Target as well as auto part retailers such as Pep Boys and Advance Auto Parts.

How to Use a CO2 Bike Tire Inflator       

Unscrew the valve stem cap and remove it from the tire. This will expose your bike’s tube, which is typically made of either latex rubber or butyl rubber. Locate a hole on the rim that lines up with one end of the CO2 cartridge; insert this end into place and twist clockwise until tight enough so as not to allow leakage when inflating pressure develops inside. The other side inserts into an airtight connection point on top of the pump mechanism after you screw off its protective dust cover (exposing threads). Screw it in by turning counter-clockwise then press down gently onto both sides at once for about three seconds before releasing them simultaneously back to their original position.

It is time to pump the CO2 bike tire inflator of your choosing with air by turning it clockwise, using one hand on the base and the other holding onto a lever at the top so as not to allow any sliding movement while doing this. After you have pumped enough air until no more can be drawn in, unscrew from both ends (using hands) then remove the CO₂ cartridge from its hole if possible without pulling too hard for fear of breaking either side off; replace cap before storing or disposing of properly. It is important that we take precautions when dealing with these things because they are volatile.
