Cruiser Candy valve covers

The blingy twist-on Schraeder valve covers makes it easier for older hands like mine to take off/put on the cover. I'm not 100% sure that valves actually need a cover, but I've always used one and these make it easier.

Need, no. Is it a good idea to keep the dirt and water out of the valve itself?
Absolutely.
