Questions and Answers for Sherwood Tank Boot for Aluminum 80 and 63 Cubic Foot Tanks:
I have 2 Sherwood Aluminum 80s and cant seem to get the boot on. Is there anything special I need to do to put it on?

Tank boots are designed to be snug and not come off. It always will seem the new boot is too small for the cylinder. So long as the aluminum 80 you have is a 3000 psi tank and not one of the compact/neutral buoyancy 80's (that service to 3300psi) what you'll want to do is hold the tank by the valve about 6 inches above the boot. Make sure the boot is on a solid surface such as the garage or a patio. Drop it down onto the boot, holding onto the valve of course so as to not let the tank fall. This should be enough force to start the tank into the boot. At that point you can pick up the tank and drop it gently a few times until the boot is completely seated.
