The XL Inflate/Deflate Kiteboarding Valve will replace the inflate/deflate valve on all 2015 and later Airush Kites. This valve is also compatabile for use on Naish 2015 and many other later kites....see images.
FixMyKite.com Self-Stick-Valves will stick on any bladder material or color. Simply peel and stick to make a fast and easy repair, or attach to a newly replaced bladder. The specially formulated adhesive is incredibly durable making for a permanent repair. Everything needed for installing the new valve is included in the package: alcohol wipe and detailed instructions.
How to install a fixmykite.com self stick valve?
1. Valve Removal: If replacing valve, carefully peel off old valve. If old valve does peel off, cut around circumference of valve to remove
2. Cleaning: Wipe area where valve will be placed with provided alcohol swab. DRY COMPLETELY WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL.
3. Peel and Stick: Lay bladder out flat. If possible, have a friend lightly hold bladder on table or other smooth even surface. Peel off paper backing, center valve over hole, and place valve on bladder.
4. Press: Press valve from center outward to remove air bubbles and ensure proper adhesion and creases.
*Pro Tip- Use a hair dryer to heat the valve. This makes it easier to remove the valve. After placement of the Fixmykite self stick valve use the hair dryer again to warm the adhesive. Press the valve from the center out massaging and stretching creating positive adhesion. Be careful not to overheat the bladder or new valve.
Add Bladder Patch Install Kit Option
The Bladder Patch Install Kit is for use when your old valve has to be cut out of the bladder leaving a hole larger than the valve. If your old valve peels off of your bladder easily, you do NOT need the bladder patch kit. The Bladder Patch Install Kit includes a baggie of talcum powder and a 6x6-Inch (15.24 x 15.24cm) adhesive patch.
Add Velcro Option
The "Add Velcro" option provides you with attached Velcro at the base of the valve just as you would see with the original factory bladder. This part of the valve goes on the inside of the kite casing; the Velcro prevents the bladder from twisting when tightening the screw-cap.
