Unhappy I might be helpless

Sooooo....... I can't get the valve on the CO2 canister to open. IDK, I've always had a paintball store fill my #5 tank, I think only 3/5 full. That place closed, so for the vary first time I swapped my tank with airgas. (I already miss my year old tank) So I can't get the valve on this tank to open... How hard is this suppose to be?(considering I've only opened tanks that are 3/5 full) I'm turning it in the right direction and all.

It can be pretty tight. The CO2 is under a lot of pressure. It might help to give the knob a little tap with a small hammer and screwdriver to get it broken free or if you know someone who prides themselves on having good grip they usually work well.

Hi mikaila31,

As you look down on the knob:
clockwise to tighten
counter clockwise to loosen
