I often loosen it to slip over the zerk very easily, then tighten it a little while on the zerk to stay on by itself, pump in the grease, and then loosen it to easily remove. If you cannot get it to twist to loosen, take a pair of pliers or 2 pair of pliers to hold both sections of the tip.

    Boy, do I feel like a bonehead. All these years and I never knew this. And, I have been having a b!tch of a time getting the gun ON the zerk. Now I know, duh.

    THANKS GOES OUT TO KOUA.!!!!!!!!

    Edit; Now I go back to read the thread and find out....I am not alone. 49 years old and still have soo much to learn. TBN rocks.

    Wow, I thought, many many years ago, the adjustment was a nice find after having difficulty using it for only a few minutes. I can only imagine the unbridled excitement one would feel from figuring out how to use it after 30 years. And to admit to it publicly shows incredible depth of character.

    I keep 2 grease guns on my service truck. One has a three jaw chuck and the other is a heavy duty 4 jaw. Both have the knurled collar to adjust "grip" on the zerk. I thought everyone knew.
