extension ports got stuck

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have two seacam PVL extension ports that are stuck together and that I would like to remove from each other.

Anyone with suggestions how to do this without causing damage?

Just with bare hands it seems impossible (even with 2 persons).

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Bert,

Have you tried a couple of strap wrenchs? I always carry two in my gear bag. Works every time for me.

 

Good luck,

Steve

I used to carry two strap wrenches for stuck extensions or ports, but do not now.

Although tight, my extension tubes or ports are less binding since I changed o-ring grease.

Hi Elmer,

What o-ring grease did you change to? For your Subal rig?

Steve,

 

I changed over to Tribolube 71 a while ago. I simply got tired of carrying different proprietary greases for my black, yellow, blue, gray and red colored o-rings.

I am not an engineer, but the coefficient of friction appears to be less and this lube/grease appears to stay moist or wet longer.
