This Instructable will show you how to create custom valve caps.
The video I posted has a bunch of ideas for items that can be used to make caps. I will also put a list of ideas at the end.

Items Needed:
1. a drill or a drill press
2. 3/8" drillbit
3. safety glasses
4. glue (I use E6000)
5. toothpicks
6. clamp
7. dice
8. valve caps (schrader)

You can now purchase these Custom Valve Caps in our Etsy store by clicking

Step 1: Drilling Your Dice

1. place the dice on the platform to determine how deep you want to drill. If you are using a hand drill, you can put tape on the bit at the depth you want to drill
2. secure the dice into the clamp
3. put your safety glasses on
4. turn the drill on
5. I usually use the side of the die with the 1 because it is easier to line up the bit
6. drill slowly with a firm grip on the clamp
The video on page one will give you ideas as what to use for cap covers that do not need to be drilled.

I also like that this project can be done for almost FREE! Asking for extra valve caps at bike stores and reusing pencil toppers or old dice is a great recycling project too!

Thank you. I won a prize pack for my Instructable.
My project was featured <a href="http://www.oneprettything.com/?paged=8" rel="nofollow">here</a>. What an honor.
What a great idea! I've added it to in my favorites ;). And voted for you.
Thank you.
Nice! I never use glue though. I just drill a hole so the cap fits tightly and pressfit the cap in. Sometimes I do the pressfit gently with a vice or chanel lock pliers.
I think the glue was necessary because I want to use these for cars, as well. It seems that much force might throw the dice off of the cap. I've only tested them on my bikes and have had no trouble after 100 miles or so.
Very cool, I made a set of 4 for a friend of mine who is an avid target shooter. Used 9mm brass shell casings, polished them up, epoxied the caps inside and cool set of valve caps was created.
That's a great idea, thanks for sharing.
Wow, great video, great idea, great execution. I love the music with so many valve cap ideas. This is wonderful!
Thank you, which caps would you like?
