HOW TO REPLACE:

  1. Valve Removal: If replacing the valve, carefully peel off old valve. If old valve does peel off, cut around the circumference of the valve to remove
  2. Cleaning: Wipe area where the valve will be placed with a 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 a 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.

TIPS FOR INSTALLING PRE 2018 RRD KITES:

  1. Fabric Modification: You will need to put a small cut in to the fabric, about 1mm opposing sides of the valve hole which will enable you to push it through.  Careful you do not cut past the stitching around the hole.
  2. Host Fitting: Use a tiny drop of dishwashing liquid to lubricate the valve tip before trying to push the one-pump hose on.  Due to the new valves being a slightly larger diameter you will need this lubricant to make it fit.

*Pro Tip - Use a hair dryer to heat the valve especially in cold weather. This makes it easier to remove the valve from the backing paper. After placement of the self-stick valve use the hair dryer again to warm the adhesive. Press the valve from the centre out, massaging and stretching creating positive adhesion. Be careful not to overheat the bladder or new valve. Following this method will guarantee your valve sticks in all conditions, and it really helps the Tear-Aid adhesive provide a permanent and lasting repair.
