Angry ITP Ovrbst Ann. & People Who Hafta Touch Stuff

Everytime I open the hood with friends around, it seems the 1st thing they do is zero in on the ITP knob & want to play with it. Each time this has happened, I've had a coniption before they can even pull the knob. Luckily, no one has turned the knob & screwed up the 22psi setting. But enough is enough! I'm just wondering if there's a way I can lock the knob, so all my friends THAT JUST HAVE TO TOUCH THINGS LIKE LITTLE KIDS won't lose the ITP settings. I know it sounds crazy, but I'm sure there's plenty of other people on the forum that have the same problem(with the same type of friends). Thanks!

If they were to turn it they would only turn it a bit. Just use a white paint marker and mark where it is at. Done deal.

Wire it to a capacitor. No one will touch it again.

I like these ideas! I didn't really want to 'get into' modifying the knob & these sound like the simplest ways to do it!

If you're throwing a light and you have an ITP kit, the light isn't from an overboost code.
