Are you missing a valve cap?

The little cap that can prevent big mistakes.

Are you missing a valve cap? That’s a big no-no in the bush.

A missing valve cap will allow dirt to fill the space around the valve core and can start a slow and sure leak that could end in a terrifying tyre failure.

Standard plastic caps are crap, thread them on and off a few times and you’ll find the threads are hard to start or worse, you’ll cross-thread them.

Best throw them away and invest in steel caps. Just like your toes need steel cap protection at work, so too do these all-important valves on your fourbie.
