Well I recently got a set of the anti theft caps. Trouble is, its only a tiny wee grub screw that locks them on but the cap itself is hexagonal so any wee scrote with a bike spanner will try to have them off and will wreck the valve screw thread while trying to remove them. I usually just put me caps on with a wee adjustable spanner so at least they are more than finger tight. I also only put my Kahn (£20 squid a set!) caps on for shows and use cheap ones the rest of the time.

A word of warning, do take them off from time to time (you should be checking your tyre pressure regularly anyway.) and keep them greased or they will seize on. One of my valves went pissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssht when it blew off!

Chameleon. :eek:
