Schwalbe Valve Cores

Have you ever got up in morning and found your tire lacking air? If you use Schwalbe presta valve tubes check the removal core. It just may need a little tightening. I have a small but useful tool that was given to me many years ago by Dana at Bent Up Cycles. I use it to tighten loose Schwalbe valve cores without having to use pliers that may damage the threads upon which the valve cover screws onto.

A Schwalbe presta valve core removed from the valve and the hard rubber valve core tightener.

The tool is small. I keep a red string tied to it so I can easily find it without having to reach for my glasses which always seem to be where their not suppose to be.

The valve core tool is available at Amazon.
