1. Valve Removal: If replacing valve, carefully peel off old valve. If old valve does peel off, cut around circumference of valve to remove
2. Cleaning: Wipe area where valve will be placed with provided alcohol swab. DRY COMPLETELY WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL.
3. Peel and Stick: Lay raft out flat. If possible, have a friend lightly hold raft on table or other smooth even surface. Peel off paper backing, center valve over hole, and place valve on bladder.
