Im sure this is just me but I jhave bought the syringe to add the sealant, following the instructions, I have removed the core of the Presta valve. Now to screw on the syringe which has an internal thread. What is there to screw it into??????

Can anyone help, its driving me nuts!

    I think it screws onto the external thread not the internal thread that holds the valve.
  • It screws onto a schrader adaptor when used with presta valves.

    i usually just hold it on with a little bit of towel and its fine.

    It's a bit late but the little squeezy bottles they sell sealant in does the job just as well

  • Thanks, I just held it over, lost less than a gram.
  • Take the tube off the syringe and shove the tip into the valve.

    The injector actually has a 2 part valve fitting for both schrader and notubes valves, 1st part of the thread is schrader size, the 2nd part (inner thread) fits directly onto the notubes valve (once the core has been removed). You don't need a presta - schrader adapter to fit it onto a notubes valve..

  • Hapy days. Never got mine to fit on my Mavic valves, just assumed it was one of those things.....
