you can just cut the black hose and stick a barb in it and have any size couplpe to it you want.wantatlc said:something people should know about these pumps. the coupling set-up on the pump is propritary to them. that is, the quick connect coming out of the pump is not a universal one you can buy all tools and hoses for. the connect on the tool end of the hose is a tire fill screw on tool only. so, their coupler to the pump end and the connection out of the pump is their 1 of a kind size. Also, the hose is only about 16 feet and pretty narrow. this sucks as you cannot hook any air hose or tools up to the pump that you have already. which you cannot do anyway as the tool end is only a non-removable tire attachement.
POINT is, what you need to do is cut off the propritary hose end/coupler they have on their hose (attached to that black rubber lead hose) and splice it into a longer, 1/4 standard hose. this way, you get a bigger, longer hose AND you can then use any tools with a regular 1/4 quick couple. then, you cut off the other tire pump end and attach a male coupler end to it and make it a seperate tool.
so, when I got the pump, I bought this 20 piece kit that had longer bigger hose, bunch of tools, splice pieces, couplers, etc. so I could rig up the pump to run more than just their tire tool and attach more universal fittings and tools.
