    You would normally use a bicycle tyre inflator (handpump) on the original UNIC fitting...

    ...but Karli seems to have removed that and replaced it with something else - a Schrader or car tyre valve by the look of it.

    It's (was) a car tire valve, :D/

    the original one didn't work any more

    Hello Karli
    the air valve is easy to repair
    the guilty is a very little seal inside the valve

    you need to find an old bicycle valve in the city trash
    then, you unscrews the little head
    you will have to insist a little because the threaded rod has been beaten (in order not to loose the head)
    and then, push the whole inside valve downwards
    after you will change all the mecanism or only the seal
    good luck
