      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

MSR stove question

Recommended Posts

I have an MSR cannister stove, the "superfly."

 

The two flanges that grab the lip of the cannister only work if they are screwed down very lightly. By screwing down a little harder, they slip off the lip of the cannister. Is this normal or is the stove messed up?

I havent had this trouble with mine. Are you talking about he black plastic collar? I usually slide the canister into the ckollar and spin the stove down just snug. It has never leaked. Sounds as if the stove is not quite right. Have you tried different cannisters?

I have this issue with mine- I find that I really don't have to screw it down that tightly, anyway, but if you have a heavy two liter pot on top of it, it might cause an isssue...so, I know in the past I took a set of channel lock pliers and GENTLY compressed the flanges together a bit. Seemed to help a bit.
