- Well engineered connector
- Flimsy plunger and handle
Price as reviewed:
The PMP4’s connector embodies all that we’ve come to expect from Park Tool — it feels like quality with a well engineered locking lever and is totally leak-free when it meets the valve.
At the other end, however, we were surprised to find that it was let down by the flimsy plunger and flip-out handle.

The latter in particular wanted to flip back inwards during use and graunch our knuckles on the top of the barrel.
We managed 60psi in 100 strokes before we began to find the handle too problematic under the forces required to keep pumping.
