Your board comes with a patch kit and a flat plastic
wrench looking thing. This seems to throw a lot
of people off as they try to figure out what it's
used for prior to inflating their board for the
first time. This wrench is included only for removing
the H3 inflation valve IN THE EVENT THAT IT'S NOT
WORKING PROPERLY. So most people will never have
a need for this gray plastic wrench at all. The
board comes all ready to go. Just inflate with a
pump and go.
If you ever do need to remove the H3 valve, this
wrench fits in there around the internal stem and
you can turn it counterclockwise to loosen the entire
valve. Alternatively, you can turn it clockwise
to tighten the entire H3 valve. There is a backend
to the valve and they screw together like a jar,
but with the skin of the inflatable board sandwiched
in between. To use the wrench properly, the board
has to be mostly deflated and you have to try and
grip the inside piece to hold it in place while
you turn the outer piece. Because the skin of the
board is pretty thick, it's not so easy to get a
good grip on the back side of this valve. It's difficult,
but not impossible. This is exactly how the factory
installs these valves.
