Introducing MEGA-PATCH with 77% more Tear-Aid! Perfect for when you need to cut away from your old valves or when you get a split in the bladder at the base of the existing valve. The Mega-Patch eliminates the need to use an additional bladder patch before attaching your FixMyKite Self-Stick valve.
HOW TO REPLACE:
- 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
- Cleaning: Wipe area where the valve will be placed with a provided alcohol swab. DRY COMPLETELY WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL.
- 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.
- 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 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.
Easy to use,great service and fast delivery
Once you remove your bladder the easy instructions are it easy, peal it, stick and off you got. Hopefully the my last a couple years
fitted kite shell well
Great product includes an alcohol wipe and a complimentary lolly. It can be difficult to line up with hole but i imagine that's just practice. Can be used for just about any inflatable item.
It's a shame that shipping isn't combined otherwise i would have bought more as backups for my other kites.
