Open Flow Style

IMPORTANT: this is an OPEN FLOW style air chuck. This means that air will flow freely through the chuck as soon as an air source is connected and turned on. There is no check valve inside this air chuck - air will flow through the chuck whether or not it is engaged with the tire valve stem.

Open flow style air chucks are designed to be used with:

  • 12-volt tire inflators
  • onboard air compressors
  • hand-operated tire inflator tools
  • tire pressure gauges

Open flow style air chucks should not be directly connected to the airline of an air compressor with air tank (such as a pancake compressor) since they will deplete the air from the tank. If using with an air compressor with tank, you must also use an inline, hand-operated tire inflation tool.

    Lightning™ Chucks: Revolutionizing the Industry

    With time, comes evolution - and with evolution comes the all-new Lightning™ Series air chuck collection by JACO. This progress is driven by those who demand high-performance air tools built to last for all-day performance in the garage or shop.

    We have completely revolutionized the air chuck from the inside-out with many industry-first features - utilizing patented technology & high-density aluminum alloy making our Lightning™ Series the most rugged, reliable, and easy to use collection of air chucks ever.

    Introducing the Lightning™ L3-Series: 

    The L3-Series is the first-ever air chuck created with Lightning™ Technology that is compatible with both Presta and Schrader valve stem systems found on bicycle tires. The 90 degree body lets you easily get in between wheel spokes to access your valves stem, and the dual setting sleeve allows you to quickly alternate between "Presta" and "Schrader" settings with a twist-lock airtight seal. Rapidly disconnects from tire with zero air loss thanks to our patented Quick-Release sleeve.

    Quick Specs:

    • Quantity: 2 Pack
    • Valve Type: Presta & Schrader
    • Angle: Right Angle (90°) w/ 360 Swivel
    • Style: Twist Lock-on w/ Quick-Release
    • Fitting: 1/4" F-NPT
    • Flow: Open

    * Also compatible with portable 12v tire pumps using our special Lightning Adapter.

      Key Features:

      • AirLock™ Technology: our patented internal locking system uses military-grade locking threads that grab & hold the tire valve stem with a few quick twists, providing an airtight seal that will never leak or fail on you. No more fighting the valve stem. No more air loss.
      • Quick-Release: rapidly disconnect the air chucks from the tire valve stem with absolutely zero air loss - completely eliminating any margin for error when precision matters most.
      • Easy to Use: Right angle (90 degree) body lets you get in-between the spokes of the wheels on your bike, and the 360° swivel head rotates freely to completely eliminate frustrating air hose tension, so you can make adjustments during tire inflation without the chuck popping off the valve stem or leaking air.
      • Heavy Duty: professionally engineered with high-density, lightweight aluminum alloy & built for all day performance in the garage or shop.
      • Open Flow: features high-precision threaded fittings (1/4 inch F-NPT) for quick setup with in-line tire pressure inflators and gauges for superior pressure control during tire inflation maintenance.
