Problem: Some hydraulic valves have mounting bolt holes outside the wiring box that gather dirt and make it difficult to remove the valve. How can I keep the dirt out?

Solution: After mounting the valve, insert a rolled-up sponge-rubber ear plug into each hole. Simply remove the plug when changing the valve.
