    So I have had the TFV8 for about 7 months now, and the cap seals just fine. When you open it though, the pin is loose and the cap can easily fall off. The pin can easily fall out too. I posted a video of it below. Anyone else have this issue? I'm thinking its out of warranty...Might just have to chuck it and get a new one?

    You might have a better chance of getting help in the tank section.

    I have the same issue. It broke after a year. Don't think you can fix it. Just get a new tank.

    Get a pair of pliers with good sharp teeth on the end and squeeze the pin. Then tap it back in. This is called "knurling"
    Knurling raises the metal for a tighter fit. I did it about 6 months ago on a BBB and its still good
