How To: Find and Fix Inflatable Boat Valve Leaks (3:23)

Finding and fixing leaks in the valves on your inflatable raft, cataraft or inflatable kayak (IK) is an important skill for boaters. Here NRS repair guru Josh Gile demonstrates the steps with a Leafield C-7 inflate/deflate valve. You'll use basically the same steps with other types -- Leafield B-7, Halkey-Roberts, Summit and military valves.

      Comments about Summit 2 Valve for AIRE Tributary:

      This valve does what a valve is supposed to do, and doesn't get fancy about it. I used it for a home-made personal inflatable and it works great. You can get the adapter, the valve, and the installation tool all for less than you'd pay for just the valve of another type.

      It's reasonably easy to get the cap on and off, and it's tethered in a way that doesn't drive you insane. Installation is a snap; the plastic tool seems quite adequate for infrequent / hobby use -- just be sure you engage it fully when inserting it.

      The valve isn't rebuildable. The plunger assembly is put together with clever snap-together stem, but this means you can't take it apart without destroying it. Probably this is how they got a lot of cost out of it. Fine with me, for my infrequent use.

            • Summit 2 Valve for AIRE Tributary

              Q:

              I received a used boat that has this valve and did get the fill adaptor. I purchased a summit 2 adaptor but it does not open and close the yellow pin. This causes a lot of lost air when I remove the pump. Is there a special adaptor or pump I should use to avoid this problem?

                A:

                You open and close the valve manually. With the yellow pin locked down (push
                down with a finger and do about a quarter twist), the air will be released.
                With the pin in the up position (if the pin is down, just use your finger to
                release it by pushing down and giving it about a quarter twist, it should
                pop up).
                When putting in air, leave the pin up (the pump will force air in). When you
                wish to deflate the boat, push the pin down and lock it open.

                A:

                The adapter does not open or close the valve. Unless it's a faulty valve, you can push the yellow pin in slightly, turn it in either direction, and it will either close from spring tension or lock open. It sounds like yours is locked open. Twist the pin either way and you should feel a little click. The valve should now be closed. A Good hand pumps air pressure will force against the spring and allow the air to travel through the valve, but some cheap electric pumps aren't strong enough to overcome the spring. I usually push in and turn my valves to the open position and mostly inflate with my cheap electric pump. I then quickly remove the adapter and twist the yellow pin to close the valve and top off with my hand pump. Saves wear and tear on me and my pump. Hope this helps.

                A:

                The Summit 2, like most modern valves, has that spring-loaded pin, that when locked closed makes it a one-way valve. When you pump, the pump's pressure overcomes the spring's tension and pushes the sealing surface open, allowing air to enter. When you stop pumping, the seal closes, trapping the air inside. Just make sure the pin is in the upright, closed position when you start pumping.

                A:

                Smitty, the outer portion of the Summit 2 valve will not screw into the inner portion of the Summit 1, the threads are different. This video explains how to replace the inner portion - http://www.nrs.com/learn/how-to-replace-a-raft-valve.asp - You can also just purchase another Summit 1 valve, Item # 38536.01. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, if you have questions.

                A:

                John, we no longer have the Old Short Halkey-Roberts Valve (690 BV). I did a quick web search and didn't see anyone who advertises a supply. You cannot just screw the outer portion of the Summit 2 into your valve; the threads are different. To replace the valve follow the steps in this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=AkshJaBhNR4 - If you have questions or we can help in any way, give us a call, 800.635.5202.
