Airflow ring stopper
Is the airflow ring supposed to have a stopper? Mine just spins around freely making it very difficult to unscrew/remove the deck. If I remove the airflow ring, all i'm left with to grip are the sharp threads. Any pro tips on this?

I put a heatsink on and tightened it down with pliers before building it...



When putting the bell cap on, I don't tighten it right down, so there is a very slight gap. It makes it easier to remove when refilling. The slippery airflow ring is a nuisiance.

You might be able to use the end of a mandrel to lever the thing on and off.

I take the ring off then use a piece of tissue around the base to unscrew it

I have one of these in the vaping toolbox, SKU 5266101: tweezers that have a gripper. This one is discontinued, but there are others like it. It's only useful for taking the bell cap off if it's stuck and with the airflow ring off.

BTW, the 1.5mm end of coiling mandrel will fit the airhole snuggly if you want to lever it.

Same for me. Don't need any additional tools.

Leave the deck on your mod. Turn upside down and unscrew the bell cap to refill.....
More sense than money.....

Screw the isolator on the tank crank it down tight onto the pico, it seems like it provides a better grip between the mod and the tank. Also when you are going to refill, tighten the plastic cap just a tiny bit just so you see it move, then unscrew. Do not screw off the tank off the mod, keep the base on the pico as ppeeble said.
