Warm the end of some tube with a heat gun and lightly press with pliers to seal one end.

you could use a small drop of silicone or epoxy to seal them. Then if you ever need to use them you can peel it off after.

+1 on the solder. To me if you can't jump the airline to another nipple as stated then I solder the very ends. This has proven 100% reliable so far for me. If in the future you need that nipple port, then just apply a tad bit of heat with either wix or 1 or 2 psi of air and it comes right out (wear safety goggles!).

Just be careful that you don't heat the entire valve up and mess up the orings.

I just use a pencil type solder iron.

Hope that helps.

Solder an airline restrictor closed then if connect it to the valve with a very small piece of tubing. Then if you ever need that nipple you just pulling the airline off.
