Ah, the "cap" approach rather than the plug approach. Hmm. No
problems with it popping off? I was practically describing your
device(ie, truck tire inflator and the like), I've seen the photos

A distant relative was pulled over once by the local, pulling one of
those "I can't shoot any robbers 'cause nothing happens out here, so
I'm gonna be real vicious with the speeding tickets" deals.
She wasn't pulled over for speeding; rather, she saw the cop, and,
apparently lacking in a little bit in timing, flashed her high beams
within plain view of the policeman(ie, before she passed him.)
He took off after her, pulled her over. Now, she's the grandmotherly
type that is impossible to fluster, sharp wits, and icky-sweet
mannerism. He strides up to the car, asks for d&r slightly flustered
"But why, officer?"
"Because, Maam, you flashed your highbeams. Why did you do
that?"(the "sneaky" cop who knows exactly what the answer is, but
just -really- wants to hear what you're going to say, and thinks he's
really clever* :-)
"Well, I saw you sitting there and wanted to warn drivers coming in
the other direction."
(tells it exactly like it is, gotta love it)
(a little flustered by her upfronted-ness): "Well MAAM, I'm out here
because we're trying to get people to slow down!"
(bbbzzzt, wrong answer! Grandma has a radar lock, moving in for the kill.)
Her immediate response: "Well, OFFICER, --so-- am I!"
He got even more flustered, politely asked her not to do it again,
and went back to the speed trap :-)
Recounted by her husband, who was sitting in the passenger seat,
minding his own business and watching the whole thing with great
Amazing how even the toughest local constable turns into a big fool
when he gets on the wrong side of a -very- experienced grandmother(5
children, a dozen grandkids :-)
*one thing I love seeing in the footage of the UK cops finding people
doing really dumb things...they don't beat around the bush. They
don't play mind games with all this "do you know why I pulled you
over" bull and mindgames like above. No sir! They pull the guy
over, and yell at the him, point blank. "You sod! Whaddrya tryin'
to do, kill somebody?!? Give me yer license!" I saw once clip where
the police didn't even get out of the car or stop the guy, they just
yelled at him :-) I had a similar experience in CT where I was being
tailgated(doing the speed limit) by what was obviously a CT trooper
in an umarked car(greyish Expedition, second "radio" antenna,
bullbars, tinted windows, etc.) So, I pulled over, acting lost, and
let him continue. Gave him a good 2-3 minutes, then got on the road
again. Well, apparently, he took exactly the same route I did. I
come around a corner, 10 minutes later, and he's right there, going
the same direction. He slows -way- down and gives me a brief flash
of all his various flashing devices for a second, then speeds up
again. Perfectly communicated: "watch it, bub, I was going over the
speed limit, you pulled over for a few minutes, so how come you
caught up to me, eh?"
