      Sorry, I don't know as I do not have an Advanced Elements hand pump. It is
      made to fit a Halky-Roberts valve though. -Mark.

      Hello,
      I don;t know tower products, but there is a mini boston valve used on my
      advanced elements kayaks. That valve you show is too tall for my kayaks.

    Q:

    My air pump came with an adapter which looks like yours and snaps into my H-K valve but has no internal piece with which to depress the valve spring and allow air to enter. Does your adapter have such an internal valve spring depressor?

      A:

      No, the valve doe not have the cross piece you speak of. Have seen this on
      some adapters, but the pump air pressure is enough to force air in and open
      the valve. Works great.

      A:

      It will work just fine.  Compressed air will push the valve spring down.

      A:

      This adaptor may or may not push the spring depressor down, depending upon the height of the valve.  This adaptor twists onto the valve stem to secure it while you inflate through the valve and does sometimes push the depressor down so when you detach it, you have to immediately push on the depressor to stop air from escaping.   This was too long for my valves, so I had to use a hack saw and remove about 1/8" from the end and it fits my valves perfectly.

      A:

      No. You push and turn the valve before inserting the air pump adapter to keep it open for the initial fill, then close it when it feels full. Then top it off with the valve closed - the air pressure depresses it.

      A:

      The valve is designed to allow air to enter without the internal spring being depressed. None of my adapters engage the spring. The spring is there for deflation purposes.

      Chas, sounds like you've got the right adapter for your H-K valve. The adapter doesn't have to push the plunger and spring down; the air pressure from the pump will push it down and let air in. Then when you quit pumping the valve will seal and hold the air in. Booyah!

      I know this adapter works with the Fish Cat "Cataraft" I own. There are two adapter that are very similar. One will work with both valve, one with only it's own design. Buy a couple of extra ones and use a key ring to secure it to the frame of your raft. People will "borrow" them if they get a chance. RB

      John, the New Short is the only current Halkey-Roberts valve, but they made others previously. Use our H-R valve ID page to determine the right adapter - http://www.nrsweb.com/repair/hrvalves.asp

    Q:

    Hi, I've looked through your reference guide for valves but am still a bit uncertain. My "Halkey Roberts" type valve looks like the new short, but is only stamped with "H3" Is this the new short the correct adapter? Thanks

      A:

      Hi, unless the valve matches the characteristics shown on this page - http://www.nrsweb.com/repair/hrvalves.asp - it's not a Halkey-Roberts New Short. Please check with the boat's manufacturer to determine what kind of valve you have. If that doesn't work, send us photos of the valve and we'll try to help identify it.

      Looks like that will be the fitting for your Rampage. I am only going on
      pictures, but it looks like the standard inflatable short valve on your
      Rampage. I have a small Mercury inflatable that had a one-off ex-short
      valve.
      Good luck, Charlie

      Hi Mike, I really can't say since I don't have one of those valves here to try the adapter in. You can check out the adapter's measurement here - http://www.nrsweb.com/repair/hrvalves.asp - It's no-risk to get it; you can easily return it if it doesn't work.

      First we need to find out what valve you have in your boat. Please take a look at our valve identification page - http://www.nrsweb.com/repair/valves.asp?tn=70 - to see if you have the H-R New Short.

        Made it work for my BRAVO air compressor

              Comments about New Short H-R Fill Adapter:

              I needed an adapter to use my BRAVO 12volt air compressor on my inflatable SUP to get to 15psi. The BRAVO came with adaptors but you have to hold them on the SUP air connection and it sometimes slips off and you cannot walk away while it pumps. I am able to put this adaptor on the pump and it fits securely on my SUP so I can now get other things ready while it pumps up.

              I did have to modify the adaptor so it would compress the push valve on the SUP's air connector otherwise for the pump to get the air in, it would always go to stage two of high pressure and low volume and would heat up.

              Where the adaptor's rubber ring gaskett is I drilled holes and put a 2mm aluminum rod cut to size. Now when you twist the adaptor on it pushes in on the push valve and allows the pump to work more effeciantly.

                I use the fill adaptor to fill my WaterMaster Kodiak raft. Works great! Much improved over the cheesy sleeves that come with the Wonder Pump.

                  Comments about New Short H-R Fill Adapter:

                  I use this product to build an extension hose off my hand pump using vinyl reinforced tubing. These adaptors make life much easier especially if you lose or break one. These are not the "exact" fit for cheaper H-R Valve knock-offs (China/Korea) brands. This adaptor is a bit longer than the cheaper knock-off types which does not fully depress the valve stem for one-way filling; Air will not enter chamber unless additional o-rings are added or shaving H-R adaptor to a shorter length.
