Pitlock Cap (Flat or Conical)

(49 customer reviews)

From: $4.99

An elegant and effective way to protect your Pitlock components from dirt and debris. Both varieties can be used on Pitlock skewers, but the flat caps are only suitable for topcaps, brake bolts, and thru axles.

Cover caps come in either silver or black, and two varieties: the “thread on” conical version, and the flat “push on” version. Please view the photos for clarification. Price is per cap variety.

See below for additional product and sizing specifications.



Pitlock caps protect your Pitlock components from dirt and debris, and direct access. They also act as a visual completion for the skewers and plugs.

If your Pitlock skewers extend too far past the end of their lock housing, you may need to trim them slightly in order to accommodate these caps. This is fairly common, and can be done using either a hacksaw or Dremel tool. If using a Dremel, be careful not to overheat the skewers, as they may warp slightly.

    Precariously screwed on with fingers. Don’t know how much I will have tighten in the future.

  5. Adam R. (verified owner)

    I love how these screw on for a more complete attachment instead of being a friction fit. Only complaint is I seem to half to hack saw 50% of my skewers for them to fit properly. At same time it is a minor inconvenience that only needs to be done once and you are done. Would totally by again for my next build!!!

    They are easy to install and hold in place during my ride! Just 1 detail: given the price and the pictures, I had the impression that I was ordering 1 set of 2 caps. When my order arrived, I saw that the price was only for 1 cap. So I now have 1 cap on my front wheel skewer, but my seatpost skewer is wide open. I think that the info should be clearer on the product page.

    High quality, works well. I’ve ordered a number of products from Jason and all without any disappointment. The locks are very effective and sophisticated in appearance and they work awesome. My bike doesn’t accept any after market parts very well so in some cases there was some trial and error to get the perfect fit but Jason gives some of the best customer service I have ever seen. Top shelf.

    The skewer/threaded rod will need to be cut to exact length in almost all cases, to allow the cap to fit. Is this mentioned?

    Completes the screwers.
    Fast shipping. Great customer service and support.

    Keeps crap out & adds a finished look. I did need to shorten my front skewer 5mm for the conical cap to fit. I have a 4130 Cro-Mo fork & the dropouts are a bit narrow.

    Fast servce but the cost for a plastic cap was a bit high. It did fit perfectly but is also too easily removed. I am concerned it will fall off on its own on rough trails.

    These were great.

  24. Royce (verified owner)

    The conical caps worked great on the seat post skewers because the skewers stuck out a little and the flat caps would not work. The flat caps worked great on the front wheel skewer.

    It does a good job to make the skewers look good, but a bit pricy.

    Stylish and beautiful. One already fell off unfortunately. Also I wish it was symmetrical between left side / right side.
