I must be missing something here- if you have a standard size valve, why wouldn't you replace the whole valve for five bucks more? Valves sometimes crack at the base.
Agree with you there in some cases, if it's a worn-out inflate or dump that has delaminated, then yes, a complete new valve is best ( and I've seen Airtime are now supplying many of their stick-ons mounted with a valve trap rather than two-sided TearAid type A ).
However if it's a 1-pump / strut valve that has delaminated, and the valve body is still in great shape, then why not re-mount it with a valve trap instead of re-gluing with urethane glue.
Major thread hijack here ...
