Screwing them past the moment they start leaking...about a half turn more and they stop leaking.  The cap is just a dust cover and doesn’t stop it from leaking.

Mine dont do this. They just leak... But I will try again. Wish these dam things had an instruction manual.

Maybe you have the wrong ones with 8.x mm diameter - they are too small!
best regards

The size is for permanent stems.  I think (hope) he’s talking about temporary angled stems used just for adding air and then removed.

Hi all

Just installed bikemaster angled valves when I had third set of tires installed (Pirrelli Angel GT 11's)
They are black, intalled easy and make pressure checks super fast and easy.

I just ordered a set of Bridgeport 83 deg 11.3mm angled stems in black from Amazon. They are the 1st gen so not the smooth sided style like the Gen 2 that Kurveygirl has, but you have to create an account at K girl and I hate doing that, so I bought these from Amazon.

I bought the adapters and they work fine you need to support the adapter while putting the air chuck to it, they lose less than a 1/2 pound when removing.
