    I really need help, my base will not come off with my tank and i really need to change my coil! I’ve tried to find help with videos on youtube thinking that someone has had this experience and made a video about it, but i’ve had no luck. Their bases come off so easily and mine won’t budge! i’ve already tried many tools but it still hasn’t budged. ☹️ Someone please help. It’s a Smok Stick V8

    the paint came off when i tried the tools, i’ve been trying for like a week to get it off and have had multiple people try to get it off too! It just won’t budge and it’s very upsetting.

    upload_2019-6-11_10-19-57.png insert a pin, flat screw driver or somthing that fit on airflow hole, then try to take it out unscrewing, had something like that on a pen like that before, i was able to take it apart with a pin inserted there and used to pull or apply a bit force!

    Try putting a screw driver all the way through the open air slots and using that a sort of a T handle to unscrew the base. I haven't found one yet that won't come off with that method.

    If the tank base is so tight to the power device that channel locks/pliers won't unthread it mostly likely you will tear something up beyond repair during removal.

    Using flat stock or screwdriver through the airflow will certainly allow for a great deal of force to be used, be careful not to break the 510 connector off, or twist/rotate or dislodge the power device top cap to tube mating surface out of place.

    Or, just unthread the coil head from the chimney prime a new one & thread it back onto the chimney.
    Holding tank upside down fill tank, hold tank turn power device upside down & attempt to thread together.

    May work, may not.

    I got it off! Thank you everyone for your advice it means so much considering i almost threw it away by being fed up with it. Gloves and a small screwdriver works wonders!

    also you can try using rubber gloves and freezing the ato / mod some minutes before trying to unscrew! put it into freezer, it also helped me with stuck things to freeze them!
