Are you using co2? If you are than you can't use a slide check. I had the same problem and found out that whin I use the slide check to depressurize the marker, the co2 would freze the o rings causing them to crack and leak. My options were to switch to hpa or not to use a slide check valve. I did both.


Well considering I have seen a dozen slide check leaks from people using HPA I don't quite think your theory is accurate.

That's what I was told by 32 a degrees tech.

Ok, you guys have been waiting on what I was talking as an alternative to a Slide Check on a Remote Line.

I received this in the mail http://www.palmer-pursuit.com/images/fitti...on-off-blue.jpg

I couldnt install it right away because I had to go to work but, as soon as I got home from work, I removed the existing Slide Check on my Pure Engery Remote Line and placed the on/off valve and after putting some plumbers tape aka Teflone Tape on the threads, to assure there were no leaks.....it works flawlessly.

Here are 2 pics on what it looks like on a Remote Line

In the 1st pic the valve is open

In the 2nd pic the valve is closed

How has the replacement for the slide check been working out? Any issues with it accidently getting turned off during play?


And does it vent the gas to the marker when you turn it off? I hate blowing the o-ring out of the disco...

No it doesnt Vent out the remaining air/co2 out of the Marker, once the Air Supply has been cut off, pull the Trigger first and then disconnect the Remote Line.

How much was the new on/off valve? My first slide check started to leak and I havent fixed it since, I was looking for a few alternatives.

Turn the Knob Counter Clock-Wise to depressurize the Remote Line and unscrew the Remote Line Valve off the Tank Valve for the Tank to be refilled.

Go to where I posted the Link for the Palmer Ball Valve, the price for one and info on it is all there.

I have a 32 degrees coiled remote w/quick disconnect. I know this might sound stupid but does a slide check allow you to use the quick disconnect w/out having to shut off your air supply first?

I checked out the on/off value on palmer-pursuit site. and one thing jumped out at me. it says in the info for it that it is rated for 1000 psi. i'm assuming that you are running a regulater to protect against blowing up the value. if not a reg. maybe a stab. just wondering.

My GF bought a coiled remote w/a slide check and the slide check opened and closed just fine until we aired it up! Once it was aired up, the slide check would not budge at all. I had to shut the remote off at the tank in order to get the slide check to slide. I was under the impression that the slide check allowed you to shut off the air to the marker, so that you could degas the marker and remove it from the quick disconnect, w/out shutting off the remote at the tank????

that's what i thought too, that the slide check was there to allow you to disconnect your remote without having to turn off the tank. am i wrong?

Simple remedy...use a couple of drops of Marker Oil on the Slide.
