HOW TO REPLACE:
- REMOVE: If replacing the valve, carefully peel off the old valve. If the old valve does peel off, cut around the circumference of the valve to remove
- CLEAN: Wipe the area where the valve will be placed with a provided alcohol swab. DRY COMPLETELY WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL.
- STICK: Lay bladder out flat. If possible, have a friend lightly hold the bladder on a table or other smooth even surface. Peel off paper backing, center valve over hole, and place valve on bladder.
- PRESS: Press the valve from the center outward to remove air bubbles and ensure proper adhesion and creases.
*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.
