Hey RVV, do you guys sell some sort of contraption to keep you deflation valve from poping open during your ride?

Built-in ones are great, they come standard on all Slingshot kites, velcro retention straps and a nifty little plastic retainer on a little leash that snaps over the valve for active retention. Don't all kites at least have the velcro retainers now?

1. insert valve plug into deflation valve
2. take a ziptie and tighten it around the outside.

done! it adds a bit of pressure so that the valve doesn't pop open, but it's still easy to insert and unplug. had it happen on a kite a few years ago...sometimes the velcro gets worn and the plugs get too stretched out and they pop out on hard crashes.

Was shown a demo of KiteLife today, was very impressed, it really appears to work as stated. If any of you are here in Pismo this weekend check it out yourself.

I too was very impressed with the demo you(RVV) provided for me at the kite expo.
I had my doubts about the magic elixer, but it really works. I will talking to you soon

Thanks to all that came out to Pismo and for the positive feedback as well. Allot of time and resources went into this products development, so it is very rewarding to get this feedback. I know it works, but being a new product most kiters are still skeptical.
The idea of keeping your kites UV protected and waterproof needs to be adopted by more kiters. Thanks again! :mrgreen:
