Does anyone know of a deflation pump for inflatable pfd's?

Some time ago we took a sea-safety course whose instructor told us that inflatable pfd's should be stored over the winter on hangers, lightly inflated. Fine. But come spring, squeezing air out of the bladder while holding the cap in place is not easy (and you have to get it all out for the pfd to pack smoothly). A deflation pump that held the valve open would make my annual task of repacking our collection of pfds much easier.

Anyone know of such a thing?
