The Fumoto valve lever is a bidirectional system. The lever is spring-pressured, so in order to open you will have to move the lever upward and, while upward, rotate to fully open the valve. This keeps the locking mechanism secure while on the road.
However, we still offer lever clips with our valves for added valve security, for those rare events of debris contact with the lever at high speeds or extreme conditions.
FOR USERS OPERATING VEHICLES IN EXTREME CONDITIONS (ie. logging, off-road, farming), we recommend installing a lever clip or metal lever lock (compatible with T- and FG-valves). A lever clip/lock firmly secures the lever in the locked position at all times and prevents accidental openings in the toughest of conditions.
