Lezeyne pumps with the screw on flexible hose can undo the valve core. So I always tighten up cores.  Mind I use a Zefal frame pump on my recumbent now. On my road bike which has the lezeyne I have a tiny core tightening plastic bit as part of my tubeless kit.

Yup. Did the very same thing with that pump. Half way up the Mangart on TCR. Horror! Instantly grew a third arm to plug the precious sealant spurting out and managed to get it back in.  Nice pump though.
often lost.
