Anyone have issues with the top cap?
I got this over a year ago and struggled to get the top cap to catch and gave up on it. I had high hopes so I'm wondering if it was just a bad item in my case, or that any issues that may or may not have existed have been fixed in the meantime?

The top cap design is complex compared to most. You have to turn only the round section to open/close the tank, while leaving the triangle section alone. When closing the tank, I found it's easiest to turn the top cap to the left until you feel the threads catch. After that it's much easier to screw the top cap down. You also have to work against the tension of the oring in the topcap.

I own two Ulton clones of this atomizer. Both needed a 'break in' period. The top cap and JFC would occasionally stick when they were new. It eventually smoothed itself out after a few tanks full. Well, it's either that or I perfected the process I described with the top cap above lol

Either way, this thing's top cap just takes awhile to become accustomed to using. It's def worth giving another shot if you already have it sitting around. And if something with yours is defective, now's a great time to try another since they're less than $11 :)

SXK is great, but the design can deceive. when removing the top, only grasp the lower, round part of the topcap, and never grab the triangular jfc control. Biggest snafu? No real knurling.
What does he mean when he says words?

I never tried replacing the o-rings... I really should have thought about that before now. I had high hopes for it and wrote it off in the huff. I probably would have left it to roll around in a container of vaping casualties forever if I hadn't seen how incredibly cheap they had become.

I had difficulty getting the top cap on. I took the oring on the tank that the top screws down on off and its been perfect since. Easy cap on and off and no leaks.
