These are the steps to follow to mount an exhaust valve when the assembly SI TECH tools are not available.
To tighten the exhaust valve on the drysuit after the initial installation procedure, follow these simple steps:
- Do not keep the control valve cover during tightening, in oder to not damage the valve! This is the part of the rotatable valve adjustment. If you turn hard on the adjustment cap over its final position, you can damage the cover itself or the crucial internal parts.
