    Valve sources for air mattress

    I got some heat sealable fabric from rockywoods and I am thinking about a. making my kids some air mattresses and b. making a stuff sack for my clothes and will have a small compartment for air as well to double as a puffy pillow

    I see valve replacement kits but do these have everything I need to install or is it just one piece. Does anyone know where I can get the entire valve mechanism or can anyone direct me to a tutorial for it?

    Thanks guys!

    the new-fangled water bladders might be the trick... I haven't seen a full valve assembly for sale...

    This might work, too: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002E0S4UW/...hvptwo=&hvqmt=

    I saw these at the supermarket... the top is recloseable.

    Hmm. Those may be an option. I know i have seen people just make a knot for closure. Maybe I can dig up some damaged air mattresses for parts.
