Cool beans but I was wondering about what happens if a cap comes loose and dangles from the tether...you don't notice it (always preflight the B!) and drive a certain distance where the centrifugal force causes the cap to contact the painted or clear coated rim surface...possibly causing damage...but you still have the cap!

:clap:

You have to be careful of some metal caps, mine had them on the back and they corroded themselves to the valve, so I couldn't remove them, luckily my tyres were due for renewal so I had normal valves and caps put on.

That's a good question.... Maybe when the metal ones are discarded you can orient the tethers on the grey ones to only flip toward the tire? I suppose they have to rotate otherwise the cap wouldn't unscrew without entanglement. Whoa! "entanglement" Big word alert! :lol:
