Vented Leash Plug V5.0

New improved "G-VENT" Membrane developed by the Greenlight Engineering Team! 
  • Micro-plug size (1 1/8" [28mm] diameter)
  • Double sealed G-vent membrane - 14X more breathable than Gore-tex vents and waterproof up to 25 ft. depth
  • Shielded, puncture proof membrane
Greenlight's  "VXV" Vented Leash Plug provides full time G-VENT venting of your EPS surfboards, Stand Up Paddle Boards, and hollow wood boards without an extra part to install in your deck.

All EPS boards contain very small air pockets between the foam beads which expand and contract with changing temperatures. If a board is dinged while surfing and water gets in, additional heat (leaving your board on the beach or in a hot car) will cause the water to change phase in to steam and exert pressure on the fiberglass skin - pushing the glass away from the foam (delamination).

The VXV Version 5.0 is the slickest solution to relieving internal pressure in boards - venting Expanded Polystryene (EPS) foam surfboards, SUPs, and hollow wood boards.

The G-Vent's poly mesh screen size allows air (steam) out of the board to relieve internal pressure but will not allow water molecules in! No need to open and close the vent as required in other surfboard venting systems. Just install and forget it...

Each vented leash plug includes an install kit containing epoxy putty and tamping stick. Vent Install Video HERE

Why is it called VXV V5.0?
