Default Km grommet issues

So on my new km the grommet that seals the stem and the vase is so tight i feel like i will bend the stem when i try and remove it. Should i just leave it together for a while and let it compress the grommet or is there another trick other than the wet water because this only works for it going in not taking it out.

the stem grommet is also very tight on my KM. just wiggle it back and forth and twist and turn and pull but not to hard but just keep doing that for awhile and it should pop out. after u get it out i wuld suggest using sandpapper to sand it down a bit so it makes it easier to go on and off.

yep they are ment to be really tight, sand paper it down only a bit, but if it aint to difficult to pull out i say leave it at least it is proper air tight

i would second using sand paper to grind it down a bit. if its too tight you make put stress on the vase and crack the glass eventually. if you make it too loose electric tape will help

i have the same issues with my KM's. What i do to get the rubber gasket off the stem is start by pulling one side down and working my way in a circle around the stem and eventually it works it off.

This is a recurring problem in the newer models. I use veggie oil now, slides right in, slides right out (OOC) .
