BALL RESCUER COMPATIBILITY GUIDE
Regarding the compatibility of the containers, the first thing we have to say is that for safety reasons there are many brands of ball containers that cannot be pressurized with the clamp that is supplied with the device. Some of these brands are: Wilson, Bullpadel, Babolat, Tecnifibre, Nox, Artengo, Adidas and Varlion, although they are not the only ones.
What all these containers have in common is that the neck is very small. If we had designed the clamp for this type of container, there would be a great risk that when the assembly was pressurized, the clamp would escape and the canister would shoot out at full speed due to the pressure, with the consequent danger that this would entail.
Therefore, the compatible brands are those whose containers have a more pronounced neck, allowing them to be held by the clamp without danger of escaping. These marks are only the following:
HEAD, SIUX, DUNLOP, SLAZENGER, PENN, DONNAY
They are few, but they are very established and it is relatively easy to get a container that can last you a year or more and store any other brand of balls.
However, to complicate things even more, not all the containers of these brands are pressurizable, that is something that also depends on the diameter of the container body, since it must be such that it allows the clamp to close completely or almost completely (it is admits a maximum opening of 3 mm) when putting the container inside (without the original pressurization seal and without putting on the Ball Rescuer lid).
The good news is that even so there are many models that can be pressurized and you only need to find one each year. Below we detail the packaging models that are best suited. We will be adding models when we test them.

All these containers are a little narrower and to be 100% compatible it will be necessary to increase the diameter with twenty or thirty turns of packing tape placed just below the indentation in the neck of the container.
Compatible brand models that cannot be pressurized or leak after hours:
- Dunlop Tour Brilliance. The container body is too narrow and when pressurized it is off center with respect to the flange. To avoid this, wrap insulating tape to thicken the diameter until it fits the flange. Even so, it will be difficult to pressurize, better to choose another model.
- Dunlop Pro Padel. It can be pressurized but it usually presents pressure losses.
- Head Padel Pro. Wide containers cannot be pressurized, it can be measured with the flange before buying it.
1 and 2 - Place the clamp and slide it up
Insert the clamp through the bottom of the container and then raise it until it hits the metal ring.
3 and 4 - Insert the balls and inflate the container with the pump
Place the balls inside the container and screw the lid on tightly. Use the inflator to increase the pressure in the container to the proper level.
