Attach Fuel pressure gauge to Fuel valve

I bought a universal fuel pressure kit but I can not connect to the fuel pressure valve at the end of the Fuel rail.

Has anyone figured how to do it I cant find any suitable adaptors on eBay, if anyone has done it can you tell me how you did it.

The only way I can see it to cut the fuel pipe and insert a new valve which is not ideal!

Many thanks

My compression testing kit came with a flexible hose with a M8 X 1.0 female. I got a M8 1.0 bleed nipple and cut it as in the picture so that the loosely placed screw presses the schroeder valve when tightened.

Nice one, I think I have something in the kit which does screw into the valve but is hollow so I will find a screw to stick into it, thanks!
