        The fitting is easy to use and fits well. Unfortunately I lost the first one I bought and had to replace it. It does not increase shipping costs to buy two so if you tend to lose things save the second round of shipping and just get two.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Both summers that I bought this it was n back order. Given that NRS is the exclusive dealer I am surprised that they don't keep enough in stock.

            It will fit if your Earl Inflatable SUP has C7 Leafield Valves.
            Keep in mind, tho', that this adapter has threads and has to screw into the
            valve with a few complete turns.

            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.

            A:

            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!

            A:

            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.

            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.
