I was looking for an easier way to inflate my kids sports balls from my air compressor. At first I was not sure the Kwik Tek was what I needed. The description lacks a lot of detail, so I took a chance.My air compressor has the typical air inflator for putting air in tires so a needle for a ball won't engage the valve to start the air flow. So I was always trying to jam something in there to get the valve to open to inflate the ball, but it was really an exercise in futility.The Kwik Tek from Air Daddy was exactly what I needed. It comes with an extra needle that threads on the output side of the valve so you have an air tight connection. Then the top or input side of the Kwik Tek has what looks like crosshairs that engage the valve of the air inflator; eureka!It also makes it easier to insert and remove the needle from the ball because it has the two wings that make it easy to grip with your hand to pull or push the needle.Overall I think it is worth the price just in the hassle that is saves. I can also use it to inflate inner tubes (the ones that you normally have to blow up with your mouth) for when the kids want to go swimming.I give it four stars, since I am not completely confident in how long it will last. It seems well made, but being 100% plastic does cause you to wonder. I hope this review helps explain it's possible uses better than the description.

I bought this mainly for my exercize ball but have found other uses for it. Good quality product. Fast delivery.

The Kwik Tek Air Daddy is essentially a custom plastic accessory with a Schrader type valve on one end and various tips on the other end. You remove different sections of the working end to fit whatever you're trying to inflate. The products seems well built, but it seems a bit pricey for what it is. That said, if you're like me and are always hunting for your adapters, it can definitely be worth it.One minor complaint the input Schrader valve is made of plastic, and so I'm not sure how long it will hold up.Written by Arthur Bradley, author of Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family.
