                            Maria, with the exception of the Pack Raft and Float Tubes, all current NRS inflatables, including the SUP boards, use the C7 Leafield Valve. In the distant past we used some other valves but now the C7 is our go-to because we believe it's the best one out there.

                          Q:

                          How does a C7 valve work? Do you inflate in the "open" position and the internal raft pressure then keeps it closed? After inflating do you then depress the star valve to open it in order to deflate?

                            When the inner portion is turned clockwise it automatically closes if there
                            is air in the chamber. This is the position that should be used for
                            inflation. When turned counter-clockwise the valve will remain open for
                            deflation.

                            A:

                            Inflate with the valve closed. Turn star clockwise (star out) it acts as a
                            one-way or check valve so air goes in but not out. This way you don't lose
                            any air while detaching the pump from the valve. Deflate by turning star
                            counter clockwise (star in). This keeps the valve open to let the air out.
                            If you have a reversible air pump, you can use it to help fully deflate the
                            raft, ie suck out the last of the air. Hope this helps. -Mark.

                            A:

                            Inflate in the CLOSED position. This is a one-way inflation position where air can go in but not out. OPEN allows air to go both ways and is used for deflation. Be careful manipulating the star valve. It can be broken when subject to too much force. Push in and turn about a quarter turn is all.

                            Yes! I've done just that & it works great. Better keep track of the pressure, however. Your typical workshop compressor will EASILY put out 100 PSI but most inflatables call for 15 or less.

                            It will work, but requires adapters that you may have to make yourself.  You will have to be able to fit the outlet on the air compressor to the plain tubing that is on the Leafield Valve adapter.  In the past I have taken a tubeless tire valve (available at an auto parts store) and whittled down the rubber at the base of the valve stem until it fit snugly into the tubing I needed to fit snugly over a canoe airbag valve.  That way I could stop at a gas station and use the air hose which has a tire valve fitting on the end to inflate the bag for the canoe.  You can rig something similar for your compressor and the Leafield Valve adapter.

                            Yes. But be very careful to not over inflate. If you are using a 100lb compressor for example, you can push the last few pounds in that the hand pumps struggle with. Take it off and check the board or raft pressure after a reasonable time from the electric. Get to know your compressor and write down how many times or how long it takes to get to your board or raft's max pressure. Do not over inflate!

                            While you could certainly come up with a way to attach this to an electric compressor, it's not recommended. Compressors put out much higher pressures than even the drop-stitch constructed crafts can take. You'll need to use extreme caution to avoid damaging your inflatable with over-inflation, which won't be covered under most warranties.

                            Bjorn, the C7 Valve has threads molded inside the opening that match with the threads of this adapter. The A7 does not have those threads so the adapter will not work with it. The Leafield/Military Valve Adapter, Item # 38524.01, does fit the A7 and gives a good seal.

                            I don't know of a commercial connector, but I think you can Macgyver one by putting a tubeless tire valve stem down in the barrel of the adapter and epoxying it in with G/flex Epoxy Adhesive, Item # 50201.01.

                            Actually, I did just that. Sorry I have no photo but I cut the valve out of
                            an old inner tube, pushed it through a grommet from the plumbing department
                            of the local hardware store, shoved it into the tubing of the adapter and
                            held it all together with a hose clamp. Works great for topping off the
                            inflatable. Hope that helps.

                            A typical inflatable needs only 2 to 4 psi. Schrader valve gauges usually
                            read much higher pressures. Why not get a gauge made specially to read a
                            C-7 valve? NRS has several different ones. Hope this helps. -Mark.

                            No, this will not screw into the B7 valve. The rubber valve adapter, Item # 1716.9, will work great on that valve.

                            Jerry, the section of vinyl hose that we have on the adapter is 5/8" ID so I think this will work for you. Have you seen this video on converting from military valves? - http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/Video_Library.asp?vid=380&group=20&loadvid=1

                            If you go online just look for the Leafeild C7 adaptor.  I believe it's about $6 dollars, I also purchased a 12vdc car plug pump that works great for adding pressure after towing to boat launch.

                            It just unscrews, there is a star shaped tool that matches the shape of the valve that you use as a wrench to turn it. I guess you could use a large pair of pliers or channel locks as well. There are repair kits and replacement valves available through NRS. If the valve body has an O ring seal on it, I usually coat it with plumbers grease (available at any hardware store) before putting the new valve in.

                            Use the C7 Valve Wrench, Item 1482.1, to remove the outer portion of the valve. All the working portions are in this piece. All you may need to do is clean it. For further help, give us a call, 800.635.5202.
