Put Your Hand Pump on a Short Leash

This tutorial describes an unusual method of inflating a bike tire with a compact hand pump.  This might seem unnecessary or perhaps even lame but I am doing so to possibly breathe new life into an old friend (no pun intended)…

This method is best described in a video demonstration and will mark my first foray into this media on this blog so please forgive the low production values.  Thanks go to my daughter, Karen, for the use of her GoPro camera for this video shoot.


Note:  The bike pump leash is constructed from a 36″ shoestring knotted into a loop. The sliding cinch is formed from a plastic zip tie.  A leash built using an old ID lanyard might also be useable for this application.
