Aha......... i have the same problem on my bombard explorer, the flap kicks up at the bottom like Farah Fawcetts best 70s hairdo.

Do you do one for a 46mm opening?

When twisted up, the lever expands the bung and holds it in place. No they don't fall out underway, obviously fold the lever in a way it won't get dislodged. I have no idea about the flapper part, but the tube was installed correctly.

If you don't like that type of bung, then get a screw-in type instead of the lever type.

No pozi screw holding mine in, I just gently eased it in with a hammer, it was a good tight fit. Probably just as well to change it, at least i will know if that's the problem.
Do you supply these separately or as part of a kit?
