    I frequently pinch my index finger as I try to connect the hose (already under air pressure) to my nail gun. The air pressure pushes back as I try to connect. The extra push needed is when my finger is forced toward the nail gun connector, and ouch! that is when I get pinched. Any ideas on this? It has happened so often that I wonder if someone has worked this issue out?

      After checking with one of our service technicians, I've confirmed there really isn't an easy way around your issue.

      I'd suggest either wearing a glove to better protect your skin, or you can turn off and drain the air compressor tank of all air - before connecting the tool.

      Please let us know if there's anything else we can help with!
