Prior to buying this I had two metal foot pumps which were heavy but used to deliver. Later when the rubber washer gasket got worn out, I failed to find replacement in local market. I tried all cycle shops who would produce washer of different size but none would work for my pump. I bought this one and initially got disappointed as there were no instructions for use and two pictures suggested that they cannot be used for car tyres and scooters. My first attempt got in vain. Later I used it for bicycle and found it very effective. This inspired me to try it again of car tyre (with tube). By now I had realized that I was using lock wrongly in absence of instructions. The pump worked efficiently. The scoring point is that it is very light and compact as compared to traditional foot pumps used in India. I am not sure as to how long it will work and whether I will find any replacement such as gasket etc easily when required. I have not tried to dissect the pump to know how it works and what may be required in future. For 999 Rs it is a good buy if it can serve for 2 years at least.
Its a good product. Has attachments for filling air in football and Presta valves. And it works on motorcycle tyres too! What was a bit misleading is that the folks at Decathlon said that it won't work on motorcycles. I had specifically asked them. But it does work.
At first look it look very cool, but when I start using it then I realised that this is just a toy. It work very slow when you use it on cycle. Too difficult to use.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The floor pump 520 has had good reviews. The floor foot pump will take longer for you to fill because of the small piston size. However, it is one of the most convenient of all the floor pumps in usage. Please take your pump to your closest Decathlon store, they will help you show the functionality and exchange if it seems defective.

Very useful for kids
The pressure gauge has marks till 100 psi. So it is good for those bikes where tyre pressure is 100 psi or less.
Tutorial / demo video should be made available. I did not find any where over Internet and finally realised that the yellow nozzle was to be used for filling air in foot ball. Till that time I was wondering the use of the accessories, which was in the pocket of the pump.
It is small, compact with pressure guage
No instruction manual
Bought this to replace a cumbersome hand track pump. Feels like quality, not fragile. The locking bar also holds in the tube which is a nice feature. Works really well (I've used it up to 90psi with no problems). Also light and small enough to put in a pannier or rucksack if necessary, which I couldn't do easily with the old track pump. I can thoroughly recommend this pump.
Bought this for use with both Schrader and Presta Valves. It did not seal with the Presta so I ended up returning the pump.
Fine with Schrader car type valves
Poor Presta Valve connection
Thank you for taking your time to review the foot pump, apologies that the connection wasn't very good on the Presta setting. We offer a try it buy it love it so if you are not happy within 365 days you can return the product with proof of purchase. I am happy to see that you were able to return the product without any problems.

THE MOST COMPACT PUMP THAT I HAVE SEEN EVER TILL NOW. . .
BUILD QUALITY IA JUST AMAZING. . . .
PRESSURE GAUGE IS AN ADDED ADVANTAGE. . .
DID NOT FIND ANY ONE TILL NOW
This makes an excellent alternative to any hand pump. I find I can much more easily deliver a strong pumping action using my legs as opposed to my arms, so this foot pump makes blowing my tires up quickly a breeze. The small form factor means it easily fits in a bag and can come with me, and it comes with a number of tips allowing you to blow up stuff other than bicycle tires. The pressure gauge is big and accurate, and the needle actually sits at the measured pressure the whole time - other pumps I've used that have pressure gauges let the needle drop back to 0 when you stop pumping, which makes measuring your tire pressure more difficult. Not so with this pump!
Easier than a hand pump, pressure gauge, small.
Extremely poor, just buy a better pump instead of wasting your money on this one. BTWIN are generally a let down, ignore the price, there are better makes available. The locking system is useless, the guage poor and uncomfortable to use the pump itself
The locking system
I'm sorry to read that the pump is not working as well as it should.
