    Patterson Super System 4 Multireel 3 Lid - Hard to close?

    just received my new patterson multireel 3 tank, it takes 2 120 or 3 35mm reels. the is really hard to close, i have to push really hard on all sides (I can't just push on the center of the lid to close it, i have to push all around it to get it "locked in" part by part.

    Is this normal?

    I don't have the particular model you do (and it is by Paterson, I hope) but I have used a fair number of these tanks in different sizes though the years. Some lids can get 'looser' and drip a bit with time, even when 'burped' to set the seal so perhaps Paterson is starting a bit snugger on the lids when new now.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Hello !
    I've just bought a Paterson tank, and it's lid is *also* hard to close. Seems they made a modification or we share the same bad batch....

    I'll jump in too with the hard to close lid

    Could it be because they are new, and need to stretch a little ?
