Should your tyres need some inflation the high performance Double Cylinder Foot Pump with Pressure Gauge (stock no: 25996) will get the job done quickly. For maximum durability the pump features a robust all-metal design with 4mm thick steel base. It comes supplied with 600mm delivery hose with ‘Lock On’ connector for tyres and three accessory nozzles. A must have for the car, especially before you set off on long journeys when it’s always advisable to check your tyres.
