I modified my H-R type adaptor with a piece of heavy (.086" or so) SS wire inserted across the bore to do just what the OP was asking about, since my Bravo HP electric pump's centrifugal stage wouldn't open the diaphragm. Drill the adaptor, insert wire (friction fit.) The only hard part was figuring out exactly how high to have the wire sit. As I recall, it was a trial and error thing. The extra drilled holes were above where the adaptor seals to the valve, so no harm done.

As an update, the adapter that Ribshop sent me works great. Such a simple device and the boat now fills with ease, top up with footpump not necessary.
