Yes, we learned the hard way on them too and used to put a length of 1/2" hose over the valve.

Biscuit dangers

Used to go full lock full throttle with the sr5.4 and old school 75 carved two stroke to try and get mates off.

Bought a 90 opti and did the same, first victim did his back in for weeks....oops!

Amazing how much more careful we get with age. With the Humber 6.3 and 175 opti it could be lethal if done irrresponsibly.

I still get probs with my left shoulder after combining several pints of Carlsberg Export with a biscuit and an old Flatacraft in 1989.
