pump that seals on non-threaded stems?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

pump that seals on non-threaded stems?

another pump thread but...

My best pump continues to be a 10+ year old Blackburn with the twist-style seal dual head.

I have an Airtower 2 and a Silca with the all-brass head and neither one will stay on my long stem Michelin valves. Does anybody have a pump that works on those?

best method I found was to just use a pant guard style rubber/Velcro strap wrapped around the tyre and pump head to keep the it from flying off on higher pressures.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
