Leash Plug Vented
Greenlight's "VXV" Vented Leash Plug provides full time G-VENT venting of your EPS surfboard, Stand Up Paddle Board or hollow wood board without an extra part to install in your deck.
EPS boards contain very small air pockets between the foam beads which expand and contract with changing temperatures. If a board is dinged while surfing and water gets in, additional heat (leaving your board on the beach or in a hot car) will cause the water to change phase in to steam and exert pressure on the fiberglass skin - pushing the glass away from the foam (delamination).
The VXV Version 3.14 is the slickest solution to relieving internal pressure in boards for EPS surfboards, SUPs and hollow wood boards.
The G-VENT's poly mesh screen size allows air (steam) out of the board to relieve internal pressure but will not allow water molecules in! No need to open and close the vent as needed in other surfboard venting systems. Just install and forget it.
Each vented leash plug includes an install kit containing epoxy putty and tamping stick and features:
- Micro-plug size (1" / 25mm diameter)
- Double sealed G-vent membrane: 14 x more breathable than Gore-Tex and waterproof up to 25ft. depth
- A shielded, puncture proof membrane
- Pre or Post Glass install options
Why is it called VXV V3.14? - This is Greenlight's 3rd generation of their Vapor Xcape Valve and it took 14 membrane designs to meet their specifications. Thus V3.14!
