    Get some of those dust caps that you need a spanner or socket to remove. I'm sure you can get ones that need a special tool to remove. It's a shame you have to do these things, though.

    Richbrook do some anti-theft valve caps that just spin if you don't have the key.

    I haven't tried them so can't comment on their quality.

    catching him and breaking fingers normally stop people if that seems to drastic then you can get valve caps that need a tool to be removed when someone trys to undo them they just spin ebay will have them no doubt they will probably do the trick but be careful cos they migth get annoyed witht that and either put nails under the tyres or stab the sidewalls

    Do you actually mean that some one is deliberately puncturing your tyres??

    Is it possible that you just are being unlucky with punctures? How do you know someone is doing it maliciously?

    CCTV?

    As in slashing the tyres? Is this a regular thing?

    Fair point, but would it hurt to remove the temptation?

    Any CCTV nearby? Are you parking outside someones house and ticking them off? Have you spoken to the Police?
