Tape for Pneumatics Connection points

Susan OConnor

<R7> <R15>

In the IQ pneumatics kit, the tubing connects to the solenoids and the compressor simply by being pushed into place. Air often leaks or the tubing comes loose from the connection point through normal jostling during driving. In V5, tape is a legal non-Vex part for use in securing pneumatic connection points, however it's not listed as an acceptable part for IQ. Can teams use tape or is there another solution to this problem?

Answered by committee

Tape is illegal for use on VIQRC Robots for any purpose. For alternate solutions, we suggest contacting VEX Support ([email protected] or [email protected]) or asking for advice from the community on
