I don't have the collar removal tool anymore as I have sold my boat and move on to fibre glass boat. I am sorry to say it's not worth the hassle of having inflatable boat as they are really no good because they just leak.

I do have the inner valve removal tool if you want to buy it off me.

Don't use long nose pliers. They can damage the plastic. I made a valve wrench from 1/2 inch pvc pipe. Cut an 8 inch length. On one end, cut opposite notches about 3/8 inch deep with a dremel bur tool. about an inch from the opposite end, cut a through hole, so you can use a pencil to turn the "wrench". My 1/2 inch pipe was a bit of a tight fit in the valve hole, so I sanded the final inch of the business end by hand with a piece of sandpaper. Works great.

Why not just buy the valve tool?

Yes I hate sibs as they leak but still a lot easier to deal with than rolling up a glass fibre boat and chucking it into the boot

Thanks for offer, but I don't need the valve tool, long nose pliers sort that out. Plus I managed to make the other tool out of an old silicon tube and cut the groves for the slots. Touch wood it's been up 24 hours and ok so far.
