The pump is excellent. Very positive connector, smooth action, efficient. But the cylinder is connected to the pedal with three spot welds, and mine failed. This distorts the barrel and renders the pump useless. I would recommend one to keep in the garage, but I will never have one in the car for emergency use on a rainy night! Shame they couldn't seem to manage good design and robust construction. My old, awkward, ten year old pump has been brought out of retirement.
