Overview

Can aircraft owners live without water? STAY-SEALED, Inc., a Lakeland, Florida based company says, "Yes!"

STAY-SEALED has been researching and documenting this age-old problem of water/fuel contamination in general aviation aircraft. This research went back to the 1960's when the FAA and the NTSB started collecting data on all aircraft accidents. Aging aircraft, corroded fuel tank filler ports, deteriorated fuel cap seals and the cost of replacing aircraft parts are all major factors of this deadly problem. STAY-SEALED decided to take on this problem by designing and developing a sealed fuel cap cover.

This lightweight, easy to install cover fits over and attaches to the existing cap. When installed, it creates a watertight seal around the filler port. Since the cover is to be installed at the same time as the pitot tube cover and the other factory safety devices, there is no need for expensive STC's or other approvals. The patented sealing and locking features have been in development for two years.

The testing took this device through hurricane winds and rain. The cover has been temperature tested in freezing rain and snow. The Solar Light Lab has been testing the product under the ASTM G155 accelerated UV light and weather standards. STAY-SEALED is pleased to say that NO deterioration of the seal or cover was noted after five years of UV light and weather.

The aircraft insurance industry has reviewed this product and confirms the need for such a device based on the FAA data that was compiled. Several models have been developed which will fit most of the single engine aircraft fleet. The STAY-SEALED cap is now available in two Cessna models, the Piper model is on the way.

Model SSCC fits the following:
Cessna Series: 152, 172, 182, 206, 207, 210.
Fitted with the raised metal fuel cap.

Model SSCP fits the following:
Cessna 120,140,150,172 with recessed fuel filler opening

Model SSPC fits the following:
Piper Series: PA-28-140,PA-28-160,PA-28-180, PA-28-200, PA-32-260, PA-32-300 fitted with the raised metal fuel cap.

Reviews

I would no recommend this product to any one. it doesnt stick to the wing surface at all. I checked three different planes. Same result. You can just go to the nearest Home Depot and buy sink plunger for 3$. It works really great. )))

Warning... this cover does not fit the fuel cap on a PA28-140.

Seals for a while then pops up. Probably would not stay in place overnight. better than bathroom plungers though as far as fit.

Purchased the Early Cessna version. Does not fit on the cap (with recessed wells) of a 1965 Cessna 150F.

Excellent product! Works very well even in sustained heavy rain, would definitely buy again.

Considering how difficult is is to post engineer a product, I think they did a good job. I see nothing I could do to improve on it.
