    Default Carto Insertion & Removal Tool

    Anyway, title and pics should say it all. Only oddball part is the handle. You can use anything. I used the plunger from an old set of multimeter alligator clip on leads. But cabinet handles, small screwdriver handles....etc, will work! Oh yeah, that is an IBtanked filler tool I used in the end, XL Boge carto with internals striped, 510 female to 510 male adapter and used epoxy putty to put it all together. It literally took less than 5 minutes to build.

    What I like about this verses the factory made model is the ability to remove the handle (and that mine has a handle) and place it on the new carto, while the tube tank stays sealed. Some of my tanks can be a SOB to push the new carto back through and keep it from shooting all the way into the tank. This way it is impossible to overshoot.

    So enjoy if you like, don't if you like!

    What's the small part that fits into the handle?

    510 male to female adapter so you can use the carto's threads.

    Brilliant!

    Hate it when I fill a tank, and make myself vape through a failing carto. Nice tool Drunk.

    The old Hot Swap video made it look easy, but I think the Liquinator had loose O-rings. Is this for tighter oring tanks?

    I did it for two reasons. My Billet Box tanks seem to super glue themselves in after a day (really, really, seriously really good o-rings) and I was tired of the sadomasochistic ritual that had become my hot swapping routine. The second was so many damn times since I switched to non flanged cartos on my other tanks, that sucker shot past the gasket and into the tank (pushing to hard maybe...don't know). Plus, there is a very good chance I could drop the freakn tank while working on it, having it sealed is great. So hell, building this was a no brainer for me.
