Motorcraft vs. Stant degas cap

So my degas bottle puked for the first time yesterday. After some reading I found that I have the old outdated cap with the white sticker on it.

After some searching it seems that there are two options for caps, the updated Ford motorcraft part and the stant cap from the local parts stores.

After reading good and bad about both, which do you prefer?

I have the stant and will always use that cap... I check for holding pressure all the time and they hold perfect . I've had the motorcraft and had nothing but problems. Had a stant on the truck now for 160k miles

Only reason I would be leaning towards Motorcraft is because I heard the Stant one doesn't click when it is tightened down all the way and I don't want to over tighten it.

I have heard great things about the Stant over Motorcraft though.
