Default KM on the rocks

Hey I was just wondering i have problems when i try to put my stem into my base sometimes. The Black insert (that goes around the stem and then makes a seal so the base and the stem are airtight) it takes a ton of work to get it in and to make it fit correctly without tilting. Anyone have any suggestions. Thanks

wet the grommet, it should slide right in after that and it will provide a more positive seal

if its loose put some electric tape around it, till it sits flush and nice.

if its too tight and you cant get it in, sand it down till you can

dont go as far as sanding yet. try watering the grommet (the black part) and the neck of the base and see if you cant get a better result, and if you dont try buying a smaller grommet

I use water on my grommet before insertion. You could also use some vegetable oil or olive oil.I wouldn't bother sanding a rubber grommet however.Just get a new one if it's a problem.

I just use a little water. Mine was the same but the water made it almost effortless.
