So I go and try to get my reg our of my hpa tank and it wont come out! I put it in a vice with a cloth(don't have the tool or took time to make one yet) and it wont come out of the tank. I don't know what else to try is there any tricks you guys know to help me? It frustrates me I know it isn't crossthreaded but not saying it doesn't have locktight or just corrosion holding it in as I baught it used. Let me know your ideas im up for anything at this point as the reg is junk now, unless how scratched up can the reg be befor its none working?

Well all tanks have their regs loctided on. Your best bet is to send it in to ninja. They have the proper tools to remove it. If you want, you could go out and buy a strap wrench. You then strap the wrench on the bottle of the tank while the regulator only is in the vice. This will likely remove the reg off your tank

^yup so does mine... Try putting electrical tape on the reg and the vice where they touch and tighten down the vice. Then try again. I think you using the towel is the issue

^sign a paper that says if the guy at the shop screws up your reg he can't be held responsible... Try making that thing to hold the rreg in place then. Also, what tank is it and how old? All my ninja regs came off no problem

Wait, so is the regulator stuck or is it spinning without unscrewing?
