The FixMyKite.com Slingshot Complete Screw Valve is the new inflate/deflate screw valve with a built-in pump adapter that connects straight to any standard pump. Slingshot has these on certain 2015 kites models and all newer kites.  FixMyKite.com valves are all made with TearAid to work with any type or color of bladder. 

*This valve is also a compatible replacement for Best Twistlock Valves.

Please note:  The CAP is compatable with 2014 and newer Cabrinha Airlock 2 valves; but WILL NOT work on the old Airlock 1 valve base (Cabrinha Airlock 1 with old-style cap, pre-2014)

How to install a fixmykite.com self stick valve?

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

*Pro Tip- Use a hair dryer to heat the valve. This makes it easier to remove the valve. After placement of the Fixmykite 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.

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. 

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.
