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.
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.
*other TEAR-AID patches can be purchased here.
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.
