    Some sod nicked my valve caps!

    Just noticed it today! Some little scumbag nicked them. Now I've got to buy some new ones.

    Think I'll invest in some of those that lock with an allen key.

    Anyone know of any good designs?

    I had the caps on my old car nipped up with spanner, so they were as secure as the locking ones. Some little tit still tried to get them off the with pliers (probably a multi-tool, they all seem to have them) and scratched the caps and the alloys trying.

    I haven't lost any more caps since, maybe they've given up on my cars now?

    I noticed at Billing that a lot of people had taken their metal valve caps off, so perhaps it's not just kids that pinch them?
