    Help!!! 2 pieces of kayfun stuck together

    Ok 2 pieces of my kayfun 3.1 clone are stuck together. I have tried numerous things and can't get them apart. The pieces are the top cap and the top part of the nano tank. Doesn't matter what i do i can get them to unscrew.

    Any ideas would be very helpful.

    Rubber gloves as already suggested & if that doesn't work, put the KF in the freezer for 5 -10mins & try again.
    Heating the nana tank section by holding it in your hand for a minute before trying to undo the top cap (dont warm the top cap) will also help.
    Cold metal contracts & warm metal expands, the idea is to try to keep the top cap threads cold but warm the nano threads since they are the "outer threads" .

    NP, also as a last resort you could try a couple of pairs of vice grips but if you do be prepared for marks & scratches.

    You can get these gloves called gorilla grip at Bunnings... They really help for when parts are seized. Recommend getting a pair, is what got my seized Kayfun apart

    I've stolen one of those rubber things used for opening tight lids on jars/bottles etc. from my kitchen, and it works great on my KFL+. It now resides in my vape box, and my wife has been looking for it for months!

    you'll be tempted to squeeze hard on the larger & flatter surface. The ring. It will slightly distort and make it harder to undo.
    Hold thin ring evenly to apply pressure the whole way around. Squeeze and twist the crap out of the solid top cap.

    if you have a metal centre section of the kayfun tank then screw that onto the other end of the nano ring

    then as sushi says try to get a grip evenly around the area where the nano meets the metal tank section - this will help it to not distort - alternatively try gripping it from the inside rather than the outside of the tank/ring

    also - after taking it out of the freezer tap it a couple of times onto the table to loosen it
