I've used the Air Support a fair bit during testing and i've not had an issue with it unscrewing valve cores. Just be sure not to over tighten the valve head and make sure that you valve cores are fitted securely!

Lifeline and/or Truflo both do a very similar looking pump but with a thumblock mechanism, guaranteed no valve core unscrewing!

People will just tell you to loctite your valve cores or carry the wee tool to tighten them, I'd prefer a design which just didn't unscrew them in the first place! Don't know why 99% of manufacturers have gone down the threaded route...
