TIRE INFLATION SAFETY PRACTICES
• ALWAYS center the wheel/tire in the cage in an upright position.
Roll the wheel/tire assembly into an inflation cage until it is centered and fully contained within the protected cage area.
Rotate wheel/tire so that the inflation valve is between the cage tubes for better access.
Clean inflation area and wheel/tire of all loose debris.
• ALWAYS use a clip-on inflation chuck with remote inflation and deflation valve.
With a sufficient length of air hose to allow you to stand clear of the wheel during inflation.
• DO NOT use an inflation cage on wheel/tire assemblies rated more than120 PSI.
• ALWAYS wear adequate protective eye wear (or face shield), ear protection and protective footwear, when servicing tires to avoid injury.
• DO NOT rest or lean any part of your body against the inflation cage or reach into cage area during inflation.
• NEVER stand or walk thru in the trajectory zone.
• During inflation, if ANY sidewall undulations or bulges appear or if ANY snapping, cracking or popping noises occur — STOP IMMEDIATELY! DO NOT approach the tire.
Before removing from restraining device, completely deflate tire remotely.
Remove clip-on air chuck. Mark tire as damaged for potential“zipper rupture”.
Render tire unserviceable, non-repairable and scrap.
• TIRE AND RIM SERVICING CAN BE DANGEROUS
Must only be performed by trained personnel using approved procedures and tools.
