      A:

      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.

      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

      A:

      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:

      To my knowledge nobody makes an float bag inflation tube flange but with some ingenuity you can make your own.
      Here are some links that may give you some ideas:

      I made these bags. They work great.

      This is just the valve end of the tube that will twist open and close.

      Yes. It is the complete valve part. I ordered it for some float bags I
      was making from scratch as well. You will need the plastic tubing as well
      but this is the valve that goes on the plastic tubing.

      this valve fits right on the end of your air tube. you shouldn't need
      anything else, maybe some epoxy. twist right/left to open close valve. no
      parts really. hope this helps

      It is the complete valve assembly, tubing not included. That is what I
      used for making my own float bags.
      Excellent quality and service from NRS.

      This is the complete valve. Twist the blue part to open and close, glue
      the white portion into the vinyl tubing.

      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

      A:

      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.

      Sorry, guess I don't check this email often enough.
      It's probably too late, but if it's still any help...
      This valve fits into the plastic tube for oral inflation.
      it does not include the tubing or a way to attach it to
      the float bag but is otherwise complete.
      Hope this helps.

              Too bad the current black tubing gets brittle and breaks off and you loose the valves so often.
