Talking Inner Air Lock transfer tube

Here is some pic's of my air transfer tube. It works awesome. I had to let the air out of my lock before dew to valve stem placement but now its like nothing is in the way now. I used 1/8'' copper line and a little duck tape to hold in place till seated. Think I might try 1/8'' air brake line next time.

Is this for airing down/up the tire without having to air down the innerairlock?
Any worries about crushing and moving the copper line when the tire flexes and possibly poking a hole in the tube?

Yes. No worry's. That tube does not have enough pressure to crush a 1/8'' copper line. The copper is soft and smooth and most if not all the movement is on the out side of the lock. Its what Clint said a lot of people have been running for a while. Plastic air line was the next Idea.

I just pulled one apart last week that had the nylon line in it, was pretty chewed up, but still appeared to be able to transfer air.
