The Cabrinha Airlock 2 Screw valve is the original factory valve for 2014 and newer Cabrinha kites. This valve is also a compatible replacement for Slingshot kites (2015 and newer) and Best kites with the Twistlock valve.
From the leaders in kite repair technology, Fixmykite.com's Self-Stick Valves will stick on all bladders. Simply peel and stick to make a fast and easy repair on an old bladder or attach to a brand new bladder. The specially formulated adhesive is incredibly durable making for a permanent repair. Everything needed for installing the new valve is included in the package: alcohol wipe and detailed instructions.
The "Valve Patch Size" option allows you to select the size of the Tear-Aid patch on the base of the valve. Standard valves have a 3-inch diameter base and the Mega patches have a 4-inch diameter base. This extra inch diameter on the Mega valve means 77% more adhesive and surface area compared to the standard valve patch size. The additional surface area provided by the Mega valve patch is necessary when the old valve is cut from the bladder or the bladder is torn or warped when the old valve is removed.
The "Add Velcro" option provides you with velcro attached at the base of the valve as you would see on an original factory bladder. The velcro on the valve adheres to the velcro on the inside of the leading edge casing, stopping the bladder from twisting when tightening or loosening the screw cap which prevents a blow-out from a twisted bladder.
The "Bladder Patch Install Kit" option is for when your old screw valve has to be cut out of the bladder leaving a hole in the bladder larger than the patch size of the screw valve. The Bladder Patch Install Kit includes a 6x6-inch (15.24 x 15.24cm) adhesive patch and 5x6-inch bladder protection sheet. Use the bladder protection sheet and large patch to patch the large hole cut in the bladder, and then install the screw valve on top of the patch. If your old valve peels off of the bladder easily, you do NOT need the bladder patch install kit.
