Valves,[1] also known as green spigot handles[2] or pressure valves,[3] are spinnable objects in Super Mario Galaxy. They are mostly found on airships, where spinning one releases collectible Star Bits. During The Silver Stars of Sea Slide in the Sea Slide Galaxy, spinning the valve near the base of a large tree unleashes a stream of water. Valves are very similar to bolts.
