Never come across this one before on any car, but removed a dust cap on the Plus 4 to hear a leaking valve.

Off to the tyre fitters expecting a valve replacement but he simply tightened it with a little tool that covers the valve alllowing it to twist and tighten.

No need to trouble the Mighty Thor. viking

Might be worth including one in the tool kit, although the fitter said some dust caps allow tightening.

I carry a Schrader valve tool in the glove box - only a couple of quid and take up very little room

It is now one of my routine checks after the same thing happened on my 4/4.

The valve tool is sometimes screwed into the top of a standard rod pressure gauge.

Note also that the metal bodied valves sometimes need a tweak of the nut. Don't overtighten it................
