Default Re: help with my new af solid!

My solid came with 2 base grommets, one black and one white, the white one had a rubber band that fit around it. if yours did too make sure the rubber band is place on with the split layered part facing downwards.

if urs didnt come with that band, or only the black grommet I would suggest slowly fitting the grommet with boiling water.

get a simmering a pan of water and dip the grommet in and out. dont let it touch the bottom of the pan and dont leave it in for more than 5 seconds. while its still hot put it back on the stem and put it on your base. keep repeating until it fits properly.

the other recomendations posted are very good options aswell.
