  • C7 Leafield Valve

    Q:

    Is this a good option to replace the valve on my inflatable stand up paddle board ?
    I am not impressed by the valve that came with the board so I am looking for the best quality sup valve on the planet.
    Also would this fit?
    Thank you very much!

      A:

      We think the C7 is the best valve on the market; we use it in all our inflatables. A repair of this kind is not simple, but it is doable as a home repair. See this video for the procedure - http://www.nrs.com/learn/how-to-replace-a-raft-valve.asp - More than likely your board is made with PVC material, so you'll need to make your own doughnut patch. Contact us for assistance with the repair, 800.635.5202 or service@nrs.com.

    Q:

    I have an older Avon lite 310 Rib. Unfortunately, the boat is not nearby. Is the correct valve for my boat?

      A:

      Bob, it could be, but I doubt it. Take a look at the Leafield Valve Identification page - http://www.nrs.com/repair/leafield.asp - to see if you can recognize what your boat's valves look like. The valve caps are pretty distinctively different. If you valves sit down in a recessed boot, they'll be A7s. I believe Avon's US contact number is 410-643-4141, if you aren't sure after looking at the valve page.

    Q:

    Between the gray valve top and valve base is a black plastic gasket-like piece. Does this remain in place when you install the valve? If so, I assume that the boat cloth goes on the underside of this black gasket. Thanks!

      Yes, you are correct. Place the gasket on top of the tube/floor and under the gray plastic piece with the spring/valve.

      A:

      Correct, John, the black ring stays on the outside of the boat, with the grooved surface against the boat fabric. The grooves on the ring and on the inner piece help grip the boat fabric and prevent air leaks. This video gives some practical tips - http://www.nrs.com/learn/how-to-replace-a-raft-valve.asp - Give us a call if you have questions, 800.635.5202.

      A:

      Hey,
      Consider the plastic ring as a gasket - it has grooves which "mate" into the grooves on the screw-on lower valve section. This mating helps strengthen the airtight seal.

    Q:

    Is the c-7 leafield valve that can have air pumped into it and have air released out. Such as an air mattress. And its sealed to material with a doughnut material? Thank you Steve

      A:

      The air valve is one-way and you can press the center to release air at any
      time. the back end of the valve unscrews so you can sandwich the fabric
      between the plastic housing. I basically cut a hole in the fabric the size
      of the internal hole and then threaded the back end of the valve back on.
      You could also put a sealant/glue to re-enforce.

      A:

      Yes this valve is pressure sealed by screwing parts together with a rubber like gasket to seal out air/water. Good luck? Let me know if you have other questions.

Solid replacement valve

        Comments about C7 Leafield Valve:

        Valve is marked "NRS" but I believe Leafield made them for NrS and stamped the body of the valve to indicate this. Good quality, solid, and well maid valve for a spare or replacement for your multiple needs.

            I purchased this to replace a broken A7 valve on an old zodiac I am restoring. Installation was quite easy and I can see its going to work very well. Much lower profile than the old valves too.
