I have a T valve on the rear of my 15 and a custom t valve on the front tire so I don't have to remove either sensor to add air.


It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Just an update for this product: I've found that the rubber O-rings on the sensors themselves are not well lubricated. After having changed the batteries a few times, the O-ring shredded and broke. So definitely lubricate those O-rings when inserting a new battery - a non-petroleum water-based lubricant is best. KY Jelly is perfect.
where can you find these small o-rings for tire-safeguard sensors.

check your local Ace Hardware, they have a lot of assorted O-rings.

or any automotive supply store, check their assortments.

They are really, really thin. I've not been able to find replacements. I eventually just screwed the cap back on without it. I've ridden through many extended rainstorms and hours and hours of mist and general miserable wetness like this, and when removing that cap I found zero evidence that any moisture ever made it inside.

I could not find replacements either so I wrote the company and they sent me two sets of O-Rings.
