  1. Rotate the wheel so the valve is resting just above the floor. Remove the valve cap.

  2. Unscrew the locking nut on the valve stem. Quickly press down the stem to loosen the seal. You should hear air escaping when the stem is pushed in--if you do not, loosen the nut and try again.
  3. Press the pump head onto the valve and flip the locking lever to make a seal. You'll hear air escape, but it should stop after you've locked the lever. If air continues to leak out, remove the pump head and reattach it.
  4. Make two pump strokes and listen for air moving into the tire. If the pump handle becomes hard to press down after only a few strokes, or if the pressure gauge elevates extremely quickly, remove the pump head and repeat Step 3.
  5. Inflate the tire to its recommended pressure. Remove the head by unlocking its lever and quickly pulling it off the valve stem. Secure the valve's locking nut and cap.

Impossible to Pump


If I understand, you are tying to fill a tire with an air pump.

I would start by seeing if the pump works without attaching it to the tire nozzle. Is it easier to push now? I wouldn't expect the pressure gauge to go up at this test, as there will be no pressure built up. If you are still having trouble, the pump might be malfunctioning or blocked by something.

If all works well, make sure you push the hose adapter firmly on the tire stem to open the air flow, using any locking mechanism to secure it down. It can be tricky to get this on correctly.

Guage needle fell off joe blow pro pump


Had the same thing happen. It turns out you can pry off the plastic ring around the dial, then remove the clear plastic window. I did that and just stuck the needle back on at 0.

Cannot get my brand new Topeak Joe Blow Sport pump to lock onto a Presta valve. I have locked the lever down, but it does not hold the valve. It is as if the Presta valve is too small for the pump...


They should be designed to fit both styles of valve, but you need to reverse the seal.
you should be able to unscrew the end, remove the sealing rubber and a plastic fitting that pushes on the valve, replace them the opposite way around ,and they will fit the presta.

I cannot figure out how to attach football inflating needle to Topeak Joe blow sport?


Older model pumps screw in. Newer models get inserted and then you either push the lever down or pull it up to lock onto the threaded end of the needle
