Tru Design Seacocks

I am considering installing 4 new Seacocks on my 89 Catalina 30. I like the design of the Tru Design with the collars.
Has anyone installed them or have any opinions of them?

Did you use the model with collars - if so did they sit flush against the inside of hull without build up?

Re: Tru Design Seacocks

I've had them for 5 years and the have been great. Mine don't have the collars, they came out after I had finished the install.
However, my valves are in confined areas with no big heavy items to hit them. If I had to do it now I'd use the collars for peace of mind. You know, just in case the gold bars need to be stowed there.
What I like about them is no worry about corrosion and, unlike the marelon one I had, they have never been stuck or even difficult to operate.

Maybe i look at seacocks and thru hulls similar to battery connection....nothing potentially bad gets near them.

Yeah...gold bars stowed in safe places...

Thanks for the info regarding tru design. How difficult was it to remove the old ones?
Mine look like they're going to put up a fight because of their condition and location. Any "tricks" for removal and/or tools that would make the job easier?
