Cheap Air Pump at Canadian Tire

I meant to post this yesterday.. I noticed the small Airman Air Pump (the one the nicely fits under my seat on my Strom) is on sale for a real cheap price.. I think it was $4.99 or so.

This is a nice little unit that works very well.

Glad to hear it works. I picked one up yesterday thinking, " how good can this be at 5 bucks?" But I figured at 5 Bucks even if it got enought air in one tire to get me out of a jam it would be worth it.

That little pump is quite amazing. It does the Strom tires real quick.
I used it on our car tires and a neighbors nearly flat and it works very well for them also. I am tempted to pick up one for each vehicle at that price.

Smile Maybe Fast Enough!

The pumps are available for CDN$5 until Thursday May 24, FastEddie. They are only at Canadian Tire Stores.

No, there are none of those in Sarasota Florida, but I am visiting "The Big Smoke", Toronto Ontario Canada, and there are plenty of Canadian Tire Stores here.

Here is a link to that company:

You can easily find the flyer, and find the pump on page 2.

If you see something you need, you may be able to persuade me to get it and send it to you. Give it a try. Remember to figure the postage, via:

I bought the exact same one at 10$ last fall. Should have waited... :mad:

I just picked one up. I have a slow leak in my truck's front left, so it was the perfect test victim. The tire was down to 20 PSI when I plugged the pump in. It pumped the tire up to 30 PSI in fairly short order but it took quite a while to get the last 5 PSI in. The pump was quite warm after it was done.

I was a little leery about buying this thing, having had a cheapie pump before that was absolutely garbage. But for for 5 bucks, this one seems to work. It's not the fastest in the pump in the world but it will get the job done.

One comment about the size of the thing. They bottom third or so of the casing is for cord storage. I would have preffered if they hadn't bothered with that. It would have made the pump really compact. It does fit under the seat however.

Can you cut the bottom 1/3 off with a hacksaw?

May I suggest you get the tire looked at. A front tire failure can be a disappointing thing. I know, its none of my business but I used to work at Goodyear and I've seen/heard too many times where "it was only leaking slowly" and it became a total failure. Often, it will be something stuck in the tire and the air slowly seeps past it. Then, one day on the highway, the thing comes dislodged from the tire, leaves a nice, clear airway and the tire goes flat before you know what's happened.

Air Pump availability - lower mainland.

The Cambie street store *appears* to be sold out (although their computer shows they have stock left - it might be in a bin somewhere else in the store, like Kingsway.)

I rode up to Kingsway at lunch and they still had bucketfuls of the little compressors left, although the shelf stock is sold out, there is a bin 3/4ths full on the aisle by rows 35 & 36. (The footwear / camping gear area.)
