Dr.Tuba Video Manuals - How to install StickIT! Replacement Adhesive Kite Valve on new bladder blank.

This video will show you how to mount new adhesive valve on our bladder blank. You will also learn of how to proceed if you can't separate bladder walls.

Step by step procedures:

StickIT! VALVE ASSEMBLY

S1. Mark the position of original valve on a new blank
S2. Use duct tape to separate bladder walls
S3. Cut max. 2cm hole on one side at marked position
S4. Clean the area with alcohol swabs and leave to air-dry
S5. Optionally mark the center of valve hole for easier placing
S6. Peel & Stick replacement valve

StickIT! VALVE ASSEMBLY (IF YOU CAN'T SEPARATE BLADDER WALLS)

S1. Mark the position of original valve on a new blank
S2. Fold the bladder in half and cut a small hole at marked position
S3. Use duct tape to gently separate bladder walls!*
S4. Cut max. 2cm hole on one side at marked position
S5. Gently peel off duct tape on the other side
S6. Clean the "wrong" area with alcohol swabs and leave to air-dry
S7. Peel & Stick small circle over the tiny hole
S8. Optionally mark the center of valve hole for easier placing
S9. Clean the area with alcohol swabs and leave to air-dry
S10. Peel & Stick replacement valve

We advise to pre-sand the area before cleaning and to glue the valve base edge with a thin layer of PU glue for long lasting usage.

NOTICE: with 2014 we switched the bladder adhesive to TEAR-AIR. With new adhesive additional valve base is generally not needed anymore (maybe only in really damaged or heavily talced bladders).

Make sure that bladder is properly inserted into the kite. If not you can blow it and even damage the kite!
