How To: Military Valve Repair and Replacement (4:21)

The military valve used on inflatable rafts and other watercraft is a very durable and dependable unit that's been used for years. It's especially found on older boats. Replacing the valve itself is pretty simple; just six screws hold the valve in place. However, generally the valve is installed in a recessed boot. Replacing a boot is a pretty major repair job. In this video NRS Repairs goes over all the steps for repairing and replacing military valves, including replacing a boot.

    Q:

    I am planning to use just the outer screw-in portion of this product in an already-installed inner-portion. I Need the threads to be M18 and the pitch to be 1.5 (fine). What are the screw thread specificstions ?

      A:

      I'm not sure of the thread specs, but these valves are a one piece valve. Simply pull out the old and in with the new. The only time I've ever seen them in two parts is when they've already broken.

      A:

      This valve attaches to the military valve boot with six small screws. Hoover over the product photo with your cursor and you'll see the holes. So, this valve doesn't fit your needs.

        I like this alternative to the now super expensive metal military variety. They seem to be holding up well so far, they keep the repair kit light. Spit makes a good lube as needed.
        Note that the body diameter is slightly larger than some of the valves they replace. I did run into a rat who needed to borrow one and he could not get it to fit in his tubes (can't remember his boat, want to say vintage avon or riken). I know these fit our old udesco and riken boats.

        I've replaced many valves over the past 37 years....this had to be the most difficult to install. It holds air but it's tough to open and close. With that exception, it's a great valve...I shouldn't have to relace that valve again during the remaining life of the raft.

                  The valve is exactly what it is supposed to be. They should include new, longer screws.

                        These valves fit perfectly when I needed to replace the old valves on my shredder. The problem is, when stored outside, these valves become very difficult to open, and can sometimes "melt". Just do not store them with the valve all the way open, or all the way closed, and you'll be just fine.
