Tyre Valve Protection

What is the current thinking on tyre valve protection at the moment then? All the threads are from a while ago and new ideas might have come along since then!

Either a U or V shaped bit of bent bar over it, or a piece of tube welded over it were the options I'd come across. Any fresh ideas out there? :)

Cheers.

I fitted shorter valves intended for go kart applications. They haven't got any protection but seem to cope fine with the use I give them

If you have to have something Zardos' suggestion is the best I've seen

If you run inner tubes, the tube around the valve is a complete PITA, because when you pump it up, you need to hold onto the valve with 2 fingers to stop the valve disappearing in the hole. Loops for me for this reason.
