Review: This is a great investment for a tank, and a MUST for Nitro. Nitro tanks are a very expensive investment, and will perform the most if they're kept up with and clean. If you are deciding to use this on a c02 tank, it MIGHT be worth your while to get it, but not neccassarily, I noever covered my threads on my c02 tanks, and never saw issues. I would NOT take the same risk with my nitro tank. Now the reason this thing is so important is because of what can happen to your tank in your time of use with it. Lets say you use your tanks for 3 years. A lot can happen to your tank, you can drop it, get some dirt kicked around, leave it laying around in the open too long, or mess up the threads while screwing it on. Now, let's say one day at the field, you're carrying your tank around, someone bumps into you, and your tank heads downward threads first. With a thread protector on, you won't have to worrt about much, without it, you may either wanna dive and catch it, or start running. This is a couple dollars for a piece of aluminum, yes, but it's taking care of a much more expensive piece of equipment, it's a worthy investment and is comes in many colors to match with. The product is fairly well designed, with a good grip, and tightens on the threads easily.
Conclusion: Protect your tank, get a thread protector, it may could save you LOTS of money in the long run, even if it doesn't it looks cool.
