so i recently got a griffin kite, was on the beach overpumped it and the strut closest to one side popped right at the end closest to the trailing edge. After a few weeks i got another strut free of charge. Just now i replaced it following all the directions on here. Pumped it up to 5 psi and was holding air just fine. Until i made sure the bladder was seated properly anddd ppop. It popped again on the same side in the same place. What is going on? is this my fault? i followed every instruction to a t. So i threw some duct tape on it and it seems to be holding air now. But why is this happening?
Tape will not hold.
Check inside to see of there is a stinger of some sorts. It could be there is something stuck in the material of the strut.
Obviously it is hard to get from what you are writing, what happened since you are not really telling us what you did, but first thing it so check for anything that can poke
