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.

      A:

      Toluene is the best solvent for removing adhesives on synthetic rubber boats. If perchance the boat has PVC or urethane material, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) is the the better choice.

    If the boot leaks (adhesive failure) and the valve doesn't, can I put the old valve in a new boot and replace the leaking boot?

    I watched several videos before attempting, worked great. Hardest part is removal of old boot and preping join surfaces. Take your time!!! Don't rush the process!
