Inflating my self-inflating Multimat.13th October 2021 by Multimat
Remove mat from the stuff sack. Turn the valve(s) anti-clockwise to the open position. Holding the mat with both hands at the valve end, shake the mat several times to unroll and eliminate folds. Please note, on first use you may have to inflate and deflate the mat on two or three occasions to achieve optimum inflation speed.
When the mat has inflated turn the valve(s) clockwise to the locked position, taking care not to over-tighten. For extra firmness, roll your mattress from the valve end to push the air down through the mattress and then unroll again to allow the topper to inflate and then close the valve to hold the extra air inside – you can repeat this a couple of times to get the maximum thickness and internal pressure.
It is not advisable to blow air into the mat by mouth as this can introduce bacteria and limit the life of the product.
