Tire valve extender

I am thinking of removing these after filling tires. Would you agree?

Or you can just buy the 90 degree angled valve for the rear rim and never have to worry about it again. They also have it for front rim but I have never needed it.

I use the Kurveygirl low profile ones in the link below. Less centrifugal force on this type.

If someone would make a small footstep, compressor attachment at 90 degrees instead of 45 degrees or whatever is being sold, we wouldn't need weird angled valves or valve attachments just to put air in a damn tire.

Yes, I have used those angled valves that you screw on and then screw off but have since went back to old style compressor attachment. The pot metal type with the little clip. Went back to the old style pressure gauge also. The one with the measuring stick in it. The pancake compressor I have is supposed to stop at a set pressure but that piece of crap doesn't work right either.

Sometimes the old ways are best and less frustrating.

When you are young you want what everyone else has . . when you are old you want what everyone else had.

Even with the angle attachment it was a pain in the butt. You needed a hand on the tire valve attachment for stability, the other trying to thread it, so two hands stretched out which blocked my view. Will try the longer attachment next time. Not changing tire valves until next tire change.
