Just go to the auto supply department and ask for a tire valve. They should have both the rubber type and the all metal type. Get the all metal type as they have a better way to secure them. If you can find Milton brand I would reccommend that brand. Anyone else with a better brand?

Go to an auto supply store liek tehy said above, get a metal one that clamps in.
Print this out and ask for one similiar to teh ones in teh bottom right corner.
