The valve assembly doesn’t appear to close off a port?

The slide gates for LiveO2-AC and ExtremeO2 are designed to close prop­er­ly when the cable is uncoiled.

When the cable is coiled, the cable is bunched up inside caus­ing the gate not to align prop­er­ly.  If your cable is uncoiled, and the gate isn’t align­ing, then there may have been a yank that changed the align­ment, don’t wor­ry, here’s a video that shows how to repair it…
