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 the old valve. If the 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 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 valve from center outward to remove air bubbles and ensure proper adhesion and creases.
*Pro Tip - Use a hairdryer to heat the valve. This makes it easier to remove the valve. After placement of the self-stick valve use the hairdryer 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.
Fixed bladder perfectly. Large size covered damaged caused by removing old one. I am sure I will need more for my old kite and will buy again. It would be good if it had the black 360deg clip/seal attached or instructions on how to swap it. You need to gently heat up valve with hair dryer or warm water to remove and install it.
