    Default Co2 cartridge regulator/adapter

    Hey everyone, bought one of those little regulators/ adapters with some co2 cartridges to finish off my repair kit for my tubeless tyres. never used one before...always used a can of tyre fix and plugs in my bag, but its bulky and I've heard that the fluid messes with the glue on the plug inside the tyre

    Been inspecting the end on the regulator that screws onto the valve stem,I notice it's a hollow space inside.. how does it actuate/open the schrader valve like say a bicycle pump connector or the pump at your local garage would? does the high pressure from the co2 cartridge force it open ? Don't want to be stuck on the side of the road with an essential piece of kit I don't underdstand. Thanks

    Never mind, purchased a spare 16g cartridge and tried it out, works perfectly, the pressure forces the schrader valve open...no worries
