Aerobed manufactures a line of airbeds for indoor as well as outdoor use. Relatively inexpensive, these beds are a convenient option for those who need a place to lay their head. Usually, their beds are inflated in a few minutes with an electric air pump. However, if you are camping or don't have access to electricity, you can use a manual air pump to inflate the mattress.


Step 1

Place the Aero bed on a flat surface, ensuring that it is away from sharp objects that may puncture it.

Step 2

Open the air valve, which is located on the side of the bed. Insert the air pump securely into the valve.


Step 3

Start pumping the manual pump. Continue to pump until the bed is fully inflated, which may take between 10 and 20 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the air pump from the valve. Cover the valve with its cover when the bed is inflated to stop the air from leaking out.
