      Comments about NRS Float Bag Valve:

      The valve fit perfectly; however, using a hairdryer alone to secure it to the tubing did not work for me. Maybe I did something wrong. I held the hairdryer on the valve for several minutes, then I let it cool for a while. It fell right off. I ended up using glue.

      Delivery was faster than advertised. Thank you!

      Great Replacement Valves

      By MarkyMark

      from South Carolina

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about NRS Float Bag Valve:

      These valves are the standard you see on most all float bags, with one exception. The male end that fits into the blow tube is slightly larger in size than the originals, so they fit tight in the tube and do not require glue to hold them in place.

      As with all NRS purchases,you get great service and it is easy to return items.

              Q:

              OK, I get it 'use heat'. Is the preferred way to uninstall old broken valve to use hot or warm water or a hair dryer or a heat gun? I don't want to ruin the tube. Amount of time to use the heat would be helpful too. Thank you.

                Been a long time since I had to change one of those valves.  I think I just held the tube and pulled the old valve off.  I you are not sure how long it will take, just put the two pieces under tension (pull them apart) and when it's ready it will pop off.  Put the tube in a vice or clamp (gently) and let the end of the tube with the valve hang free.  Gently clip a pair of vice grips or a suspended weight from the valve.  Warm to break the seal and let gravity do the rest. Tom TaylorPax et Bonum

                Put a coffee mug of water in the microwave for about 90 seconds, then put
                the valve and the end of the tubing in the water for a couple of minutes.
                That ought to be enough heat to soften the tubing, but not enough to damage
                anything except glue.

                A:

                Since I make my own flotation bags, I usually make the fill tubes long enough to just cut off the valve, and start with fresh tube for the new one. It is possible, however, to heat the fitting with a hair dryer, just until the glue releases, and the valve can be pulled free. Try to be conservative with the heat, though... if you "cook" the vinyl tube, you might just as well have cut it off, and probably would have wasted less tube length. Also, before you even start, make sure it is the valve that is faulty... often what has actually occurred, is a small gap in the original seal at the joint, rather than the valve itself. I often wrap the glued joint, either with artificial sinew, or arrow wrapping thread, whichever is closer to hand, but any heavy duty thread will work, the a drop of super glue to waterproof it.

                Stick the end of the tube in hot water until it is pliable (it doesn't take
                very long) and push the valve in.
                You may have to experiment with how long in the water.

                To my knowledge nobody makes an float bag inflation tube flange but with some ingenuity you can make your own.

                That's a good question! I have never seen that part for sale anywhere. The best I can think of is to find someone with a defunct float bag and cut it out and glue it on with stabond or aquaseal. Are there no float bags available the size you want ready made?

                A:

                I found some tube that fit over the base of the valve and then went to Lowes and found some plastic fittings in the electrical department that the tube would fit. The fitting was a bulkhead type fitting. A flange with a jam nut. These tend to stick out a lot.
                Later I made some 90 deg fittings using 1/2" plastic plumbing fitting and a flange I made out of PVC plastic. Glued them all together and to the clear plastic bags I made using some PVC glue.   HH-66 is the recommended glue  if you can find it.
                Good luck

                Sorry,
                I don't know.  I just bought the valve to repair one that had been stepped on or something.
                I did find this:
                http://www.storerboatplans.com/wp/boat/dinghy/diy-pvc-buoyancy-bags-and-dry-bags-for-dinghies-and-canoes/
                Which says you can cut something out of a cheap inflatable.
                Try google on "make your own flotation bags" or some such. Seems to be quite a bit online.
                I use http://www.mcmaster.com/ for a lot of stuff.  They have all kinds of tubing and adhesives.
                Might even have ring fitting you need, but I didn't see it.  Maybe some other industrial supplier.
                Sorry I can't be of more help.

                This is just the tip.  It attaches to the tubing that comes out from the bag.  You will still need the piece that mates to the bag itself and the tubing that goes from that mating piece to the valve. -Ray

                It is a complete valve but it is made to fit a very specific size of tubing.
                The white part sticking out on the photo below fits into the tube. There are
                no barbs and no taper on it. So if your fill tubing is even a slightly
                different size than what this is made to fit, you'll have a hard time
                getting it to seal. I replaced a valve in an inflatable kayak seat. The
                original tubing had become enlarged over the years so when I put the new
                valve in it didn't fit tight and leaked. I had to cut a small section off
                the end of the tubing and then it fit.

                This valve fits into the plastic tube for oral inflation.
