Well i got a new CO2 pump its the Innovations ultraflate IH, and as i get out of the car for my group ride i noticed all of a sudden my tire went flat and i was pissed. so i proceeded to change the tire and i got everything done then i gently screwed in the cartidge for the pump and as i put locked the presta valve in the pump and i hit the red button BOOM! the nut that hold in the CO2 cartidge got blasted out like a shotgun! and the pump flew out of my hand. good luck was i was rght next toe a camaro and it flew right right over the hood of the car. if that woulda hit the glass it woulda gone straight through. but luckily my friend had a pump and everything and we got our ride on bad day bad day... shitty pump die!!ima get my refund

I was shocked to hear that your pump blew up. I was also glad to hear that no one was hurt.

I'd suggest contacting the Mfgr when you think that you can talk to them with out going balistic. It's sounds like they could potentially have a significant mfgr defect, which you can help them to help others avoid a potentially lethal situation. They should appreciate the feedback & I would hope that they would be grateful & bend over backward to make sure you are taken care of.

I hope things work out
