Due to most inflatable fenders having a form of internal valve the problem of controlled inflation arises. Some hand pumps not designed for this purpose can often cause damage by pushing the valve inside the fender or buoy. The Dan-Fender® hand pump is designed and manufactured to fit into the centre of the metal Dan-Fender® valve and most other common fenders for easy and gentle inflation. This hand pump is small and compact at only 200mm long and has an inflation action on both the in and out strokes.
