Just discovered that they are a perfect fit for the threaded end of brake light switches. Nice tidy protection for spare switch.

lol! Actually had a useful reason to find out that may be worth sharing. The rear brake light switch failed and was seized into the footplate socket. I drilled it out with 7.5mm but that left a brass residual   blocking the threads. Couldn’t find an 8mm bolt with the right pitch until I tried the dust cap and found it fitted the switch perfectly. Dremmeled a groove into an old valve and worked it through the hole to clean the threads. New switch installed without fuss.

Now I can keep the air from leaking out of my switches. (Or smoke if they're Lucas switches.)
