Help is here bud.....

You need to remove the Quick Disconnect to replace the O-rings inside the Slide Check by using some simple tools.

Tools: Adjustable wrench, 9/16 open box wrench, needle nose pliers, Teflone Tape and a small box to place the removed parts in safely and out of the way.

Replacements parts: 1 snap ring (if and when the snap ring on the Slide check becomes lost during removal) and 2 Tank O-rings.

1: The Quick Disconnect is the first thing that needs to be removed...take the adjustable wrench and place on the Slide Check and the the 9/16 wrench and place it on the Quick Disconnect.

2: Hold both wrenches firmly and "counter clock-wise turn" the 9/16 wrench on the Quick Disconnect.

3: Once the Quick Disconnect has been removed and place it on a small box and out of the way.

3.5: Take the needle nose pliers and slowly pull out the "snap ring" on the Slide Check (be very careful when pulling the snap ring out, it can accidently fly off and get lost very easily).

4: Place the snap ring safely in the samll box and out of the way and pull out the Slide Check Handle.

5: Replace both O-rings which are located inside the Slide Handle on both ends.

6: After the O-rings have been replaced, slide the Slade Handle back on the Check Valve, take nsap ring and snap it back in place....now your Slide Check has been repaired.

7: Take the Quick Disconnect and check the reading if there is any debris on it and clean it.

7.5: Wrap a small amount of Teflone Tape around the threading of the Quick Disconnect and hand screw the Quick Disconnect to the matching threads of the Slide Check.

8: Take the adjustable wrench and firmly hold the Slide Check and take the 9/16 wrench and "clock-wise turn" and torque the Quick Disconnect into place.

Fill up the tank and test your Slide Check.

you have to constantly oil the slide check or else it leaks like a sieve. the guy at my local pb shop reccomended oiling it before and after every use. so far i have never had a leak. just make sure you oil in front and behind the slide then move it bak and forth a few times to spread it around.
*edit* and this can help to prevent it from leaking again.

You dont really have to oil the Slide Check because, its made of Stainless Steel and the parts are extremely smooth so, all you have to do is to make sure the O-rings are not damaged or worn out and it will serve you continously.

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

First Fantastic, Everything went great with my first slide check repair, less than 5 minutes no issues

My setup was slightly different, I just got a Kingman Java Coil with Slide check (thank you Ebay) and after going crazy on the RT on a chilly fall Day my tank was frozen and my coil was leaking. Damn Freezing.
Anyways.
The Java Slide check does away with the snap ring for a smaller black O-ring to keep the slide check from coming too far forwards, - A nut would eventually stop it so it's not like it would fall off.
Anyways, once I used my wrenches to remove the last fitting. And used a dental pic to clean out the old plumbers tape I found exactly as you described. Two regular tank O rings on the inside of the slide. Only one was bad, but I replaced the clear rings with what I consider to be better rings, the black 70D rings, they get messed up by cold, but return to their shape, they don't just stay messed up like the white ones.
Anyways, Just wanted to add, dental pic comes in handy, didn't need the needlenose, and no snap ring on mine, but there is an o ring that I will want to find a few of to have handy in case of repair.
But if you have a leaky Java slide check, no big deal, just follow the instructions, and you'll be rockin again.

I own two coiled remotes w/ slidechecks. One is a PMI and one is a 32 degrees. On the inside of the slidecheck, there are two holes that the CO2 travels through. These holes can have burrs on them which will cut the O rings. If you take a 1/8" drill bit by hand, and screw slightly into the hole, you can cut the burrs off. This will also save your O rings. Also, keep your slide check oiled. Evil Member, great post. Good advise. :)

Just to add to this very useful post that I could've used in the past. I have a remote with slide check that crapped out the first time I hooked it up and put air to at my very first scenario (Free Finale 2005 for anyone who cares). Well there were some vendors on hand and I took it to one of them and they swapped the o-rings for me, as soon as we got it all back together and oiled it (which I hadn't done with the first one) and hooked it up to air it blew right out again. Turns out the thing had a burr, he suggested a green kitchen scrubbie (which neither of us had). So we just disconnected it and I played the weekend without the slide check.

Called 32Degrees and they sent me a new one. Oiled it and have used for the last few months on Co2 and HPA with no problems. Before anyone else bashes 32Degrees versus any other brand, so some research and see how many people's remotes come with a slide check manufatcured by National.

32Degrees is okay in my books, cause DUMPER happens and they took care of it.

Great Post EvilFingers

I have had a problem where my slide actually Eats my o-rings. After oiling, and making sure everything is smooth and working fine, I charge it up. It is all fine until I slide it back to purge the line, this is when it "eats" the ring. Charge it up again, connect, slide forward and it is a fresh cool breeze of CO2...

Anyone else get these half circles "bitten" out of the O-rings?

Looking to post some pics.

Like they said, probably a burr that's cutting your o-rings.

If you don't smooth out those two tiny holes in the smooth cylinder it's just gonna keep cutting O-Rings. Those two tiny holes can have a burr or just a sharp edge to them. After you do that keep them oiled. The oil isn't to make the slide move easier it's to help the O-Ring slide over that hole without getting cut. Oil the slide right there at that hole before each day of paintballin'.

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