    Apeks 1st stage rotating

    I understand that having a rotating turret, well, rotates. But after I have the 1st stage tightened on the tank (Din) the whole piece still rotates. I'm trying to route hoses but am unable to lock the 1st stage in any certain position. Thoughts?

    Try holding your first stage a little off angle to the right as you're tightening the wheel and when you are allllmost tight, rotate the first stage with the wheel for the last bit, tightening it just that little extra. loosening it after the dive is the same way, just in reverse order. That and take a look at how your hoses are routed. There may a particular hose that is putting some tension on your first stage which is causing it to rotate.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    Once I opened the tanks the pressure locks the 1st stage into whatever position you have it in.
