TNT mk5 airbladder feet

Postby Andreas » Tue Dec 25, 2018 8:43 am

Hi all! Im getting tired of my leaky air bladders in my TNT mk5 table,
I wanna change these into something else that dont need any looking after every week.
Ive seen the squash ball thing but dont understand how to fix them to the feet?
Second thought i have isnt there some more high end feet to fit these tables?

Hoping to get some answers that can guide me so that i can forget about leveling the table all the time.

Best Regards.

I wonder if Green Slime would seal them up, You would have to put some slime in then slowly turn them to seal it all up,,First fill with air and then stick them in a bucket of water to see were they are leaking,, Just a thought https://www.slime.com/au/products/lawn- ... ealant.php

Clean with alcohol. Find leak, remove pressure, superglue or shoe repair glue.

When I had a Mk5 with leaky air bladders, I used Stans No Tubes sealant which is a fibre glass infused latex which I usedto make my bicycle tires tubless. The racquet ball suspension is a noticable improvement, but the the challenge is finding a conversion kit.

The holes are probably at the base of the valve as that's the area that is stressed most when inflating the bladder.

I second BRF's suggestion of using Stan's NoTubes sealant. If the holes are as small as your testing indicates, the sealant should quickly fix your issue.
