A blackburn MP1. There is no flip lock on this little double pump air pump, and no instructions. Dumb question-do I just slip it over the stem and push until I can pump air into it, or is the pump possibly defective?

My old frame pump didn't have a flip either, seemed to work fine as I remembered. What u gotta lose? Promise it won't blow up!

Ive slipped it on there, I just might not be pushing it on there far enough. Ill give it another shot in the AM before I pull out the mini compressor. Next stop, Saddle.

You will need to hold the pump head in place with one hand while you pump with the other.

Thanks all-Im used to the T pumps or foot pumps from when I was a kid, so I already looked at this little thing and wondered how useful it could/would be. Ive been reading and see that its almost a necessity as is.
Thanks for the heads up's.
