Okay, let's talk about our speed safety valve and the beauty of how it releases air very quickly, so that in no time at all you can deflate your tube and be gone for the day. You reach down and first remove the flap covering the speed safety valve. You first lift the first tab open, and then from that tab, you pull so that the entire plug is removed. It'll allow the air to come out really quickly. You just depress your tube, force some air out, before you know it, you can fold it up and head to the car.
