Default Opinions Desired: Valve Stem Extensions

Im in need of some valve stem extensions so i can mount my tire pressure monitors on the Inner rear drive tires.

I am concerned about them coming loose or contributing to a leak...or even getting SPLIT/Torn open (dont know why or what my paranoia is based on).

any experiences opinions and recommendations are welcomed.

You're sure you can't get the senders screwed on? My inner drives were kind of hard to get the senders on but I managed. I was able to get them going and then to snug them down I used a large needle nose pliers with a funky tubing remover jaw thingy. I could barely get it through the slot in the rim but it worked. Just be careful not to squeeze it too tight and crack the sender. I'm leery of those valve extenders. Seems like a leak possibility.

nah, i could barely get 'em on the front wheels.
I was just barely able to get 'em on the outside rear & had a tough time tightening 'em.

doing some reading i dont see many that have encountered issue...and a little thread locker should provide some peace of mind.

i also see that they make stabilizers (rubber inserts) that go in the wheel hole and hold the extension and they also make some "stays" that mount under the lug nut cap to hold the extension too.
