The FixMyKite.com 7mm Self-Stick Kiteboarding Valve is a replacement for leaky valves on kite bladders. Works with older kites (primarily produced before 2003 and prior) that use a smaller inflate valve. Also used on GK 1 pumps, and Ocean Rodeo kites midyear 2010 and earlier and a few other one pump systems, plus older Airush C-kites, GK (Globe Kites), and North. The one way valve lets air enter while pumping but stops air from going out. Simply squeeze the valve to let air out when deflating or the one-way flap can be cut out to create a 2 way valve.
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.
MEGA Option: The MEGA valve option refers to the size of the TEAR-AID PATCH ONLY. MEGA patches are 4 inches in diameter as opposed to the standard valve patch which has a 3" diameter. This extra inch means 77% more adhesive base and surface area compared to the standard valve patch size. The MEGA-valve patch is necessary when the old valve is cut from the bladder or leaves a tear during removal. The additional surface area provided by the Mega valve Tear-Aid patch allows quick and easy bladder repair eliminating the need for an additional bladder patch. The Mega Valve Patch can also be used if the valve area of the bladder is warped.
If your old valve(s) cleanly peel(s) off, a larger Mega patch in most cases isn't necessary.
