I have a 38" KM Chiller and it's extremely hard to take the stem out of the vase. Is this what you're talking about?

put water on the grommet before putting it in the base... and if it's still difficult to get out, i usually twist mine ((like a bottle cap)) or wiggle the stem forward and backward a tiny bit.

I've got the perfect solution for you! I got one for my KM and it is a piece of cake to take apart and has a fantastic seal! How do I do this you might ask!??

Here you go!

yeah or u know what you can do if u dont want to buy any more grommets..
just remove the grommet that is for KM. and replace it with just the ammount of electric tape you need and its perfect! fits great! the whole downpart of the stem goes into the base and not just a big part of the grommet..
I do this to all my pipes I have, electric tape is 10x better then grommets... perfect!
and yes they fit so good I can easily without any problems lift my hookah in the stem every time..

Put a light coating of olive oil or water on the grommet and it will help a lot.

did anyone even read my post.. guys.. I promise you its the best possible way.. just tape the exact ammount of electric tape around the stem until it fits perfectly and voila! no olive oil, no water, no hustle, no leaning hookah, no use all force to get the stem out of base and u use too much strength and the ashtray just blows ash all over your room... None of that!!

After finding out the hard way the very first time I used my MZ that the grommet was too tight, I sanded the grommet down using fine grit sandpaper. It's still firm but with a wiggle it comes out easily enough.

The very first time I tried tog et it out, I snapped the neck of my base clean off . A little bit of super glue did the job for a while, but then I just super glued it again and have a whole bunch of super strength tape making my pretty base ugly

Just put a small amount of some non-toxic grease on the grommet. I guarantee you won't taste it as long as you don't use too much.

I'm a professional trombonist myself, so I used some synthetic tuning slide grease that I already had. I applied it when I first got my hookah in August and have not had to re-apply.

The grommet is still very tight, but it will slide out. I hold the base with my feet and wiggle the stem until it slides out.

I like your thinkin! Im going to have to try this... I allways have a hard time getting my KM stem off... usually when I go to clean it in my bathroom i kneal down on my knees and hold the base inbetween my legs and use both hands to rock, twist, and lift off the stem it works but its still a pain in the ass... oh btw 300th post!!
