    Hmm, good idea. But did we really need a whole press release telling people if you pull off the canister valve, the tank will shoot around the room?

    Or you could just glance at the burst disk. If it aint rotating with the rest of the tank, you have a problem.

    I cant count the number of times i unscrewed my tank without looking at the valve. It never even entered my mind. I'm sure its the same for many kids. Calling attention to this issue is 100% called for IMO, especially with a TON of tanks out there that are going out of date.
