    yeah i can see where you're coming from on the top cap(apologies if i came accross a bit narky),but even with one of the o rings removed its still awkward to pull it off.
    Anyhoos,all this talk of o rings has led me to having a bit of a faff about with it and have removed the ring at the very bottom,the one below the tank,and this seems to have sorted it,I think it must have been the extra force needed to push it off this ring that was causing the tank to slide off-bloody simple really :doh:

    i don't have a set of callipers to do it accurately otherwise it's the first thing i would have done. it may be a non-issue for you but i quite like to keep my juice in my e-cig when i put it in my pocket....

    Interestingly my hcigar kraken from vapegeek did not come with a o ring below the tank glass
    The shield only seals at the o ring at the top above the glass
    Pops on nicely

    As did mine,but the genuine one came with a ring on the bottom(normal or just a one off mistake by VA ?),so i put one on the clone as well,bit of a silly idea as it turns out,now taken them both off and the caps pop off a treat.
    Sometimes the soloution to a problem is staring you so hard in the face you don't notice it.
    m0th have a look at what plumeblu posted on the previous page...

    I checked and my FT ones have tank seals: outside diameter 16 mm and 1.5 mm thick.

    No apologies necessary, of the two I have one is very tight even with skinnier o'rings, but the other you can pull off with the drip-tip.

    Neither of mine came with an o'ring below the tank, but I put a loosish one there which works well, I origionaly put a taghter one there and that was the time I pulled the top-cap and moved the tank. PTFE tape under the tank seals works really well.
