    Thanks all,
    I have contacted the store that I purchased the gear from. While I wait for a reply, would anyone know if this rear cover can be purchased separately or do I need to buy a specific Apeks inlet valve to get the correct part?

    Wouldn't it be great if Santi would chime in?
    After all our discussing it would be nice to hear from the people that would know for a fact about this stuff, considering they made it.

    I seriously doubt Santi made the bulkhead. Generally suit manufacturers don't make any of the valves used in their suits.

    I apologize, I misunderstood the name, mine is the Thermovalve inflator not the one used with an existing inflator.

    I am pretty sure Santi has the bulkhead made for them, its their product to sell, the bulkhead mates to the existing inflator valve, either factory Apeks or Sitech that Santi installs on the suits.

    Thanks for the correction, I guess I still need a picture of an installed bulkhead connector from the inside of the suit to see how the cord is routed through the valve.

    Thanks all, really appreciate the input.

    **Update**

    Have spoken to Santi, sent a few pictures and have confirmed that a part was missing from my order.
    That part is now on its way to me by mail. It took a bit to get a reply but as soon as the problem was known it was also solved.
    Cant wait to try out the heated under suit.

    Hi guys
    Are there any difference between bulkhead for installing on Apeks or SiTech inlet valves?
