Templar child proof cap won't come off

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I know you have to push down and turn like a medicine bottle but I think what might have happened is that I tightened it too much last fill.  Now no matter how hard I push down I can't get it to catch.  It just spins and I can't feel the catch lock.  Is there any remedy to this?

I'm thinking a pair of pliers or channel locks. It would render that cap and bottle useless so you'll need to transfer the liquid into a different bottle...

If I'm reading it right the child proof cap is on your Templar tank, that is the reason I don't buy tanks with a child proof fill, I'm too apt to grab a hammer.

You could try to soak it in some very hot water, getting it hot might loosen it enough, other than that don't know what to tell you.

Ya, I really think you're hosed.  If you can't activate the catch the top aint-a-goin-nowhere.

cany got it right.  That is what I did.  A small flat screwdriver down the airflow and I backed it out.   I did turn it too tight and wore off the catch that allows it to grab and open so now I always have to use the screwdriver but it still works fine.  Not a big deal.  I like the Templar a lot but not a fan of child proof caps.

So my aramax power vape has a childproof cap where you have to push it down then twist it, but when I push it down and it catches, it doesn’t twist or turn?

You'll probably get more answers with a new thread :) (This one is quite old and probably forgotten about)
