    Hey guys maybe someone can help me out. I have a slight problem with my UFS. I get everything loaded up. When I open my Liquid Flow control everything works great. But when I try to close it, it unscrews the atomizer. I basically have to keep it open or the top ends up coming loose and I loose all my juice. When I put the atomizer in I tighten it firm but not too much to damage the threading. It seems no matter how many times I do it it keeps loosening the atomizer. Any tips, tricks, or help or is there just a flaw in my UFS.... I have tried about 7 different atomizers from different companies and all do the same thing....

    Are you using the 510 extension and an imeo mouth piece or a drip tip with the top piece? Either way, I would say the top pice or the imeo tip is to tight...

    Hi Jeff, i am new at this but i found that the top cap is only there to keep the o-ring in place. So i think it is not supposed to be very tight. I keep it fairly loose and this works for me.

    Also, use a mouse pad or a rubber jar opener pad to tighten the atomizer. The rubber jar opener pad is also great for screwing/unscrewing all the UFS/GGTS parts nice and firm without using tools :)

    Hahaha I use my Playtex rubber gloves to tighten/untighten. Good grip on those babies. Didn't have a jar opener or suitable mouse pad available, even if I had thought of those.

    I'm having a little problem with one atty.

    Installed in the ufs, i can't duck any air in when I open the air ring and close the juice.

    What could be wrong with this atty? It's brand new, seems to work if i just drip on the stealth.

    Every atty or carto can behave differently in the UFS. A brand new one might not act or vape like you want it to, so replace it with another.
