    You'll never know if that was the problem with them.

    I think using a large bent paper clip works the best to lift the round connector. Just stick the paper clip into the threaded end hole a little ways and turn it in a circle motion, lifting up a little at the same time.

    You could have turned it back to where it was. Turn left for an easier draw, turn right for a harder draw.

    I'm sure that if someone had 5 cartos DOA, that V4L would have gladly replaced them. I have dealt with maybe 6 different vendors since I've started vaping this past year, and none have had near as great customer service as V4L! They are the company I use exclusively now because of this!!

    It really does work!! Thanks. I had to do the quarter turn numerous times to get it functioning so if you don't have luck keep on turning & testing until you have success. Great tip.

    Instead of turning it, try prying the center up a little, evenly, with a pin or some other small instrument. I tried the "turn" before I knew I could also "pry".

    You're correct! If the round connector is stuck, it shouldn't be turned. I insert the end of a large bent paper clip into the connector hole and lift or pry the connector up.

    I tried the rotate thing, and it makes the carto where I can barely draw any air thru it at all.
