At least my adaptor for airsoft has better results. Priorities, eh?
Well, that's a bit of a relief to me. I noticed that I had to force probes into Coleman tanks when I threaded on accessories like camp stoves and torches, but I wasn't sure how many other users would have noticed this. If this is a widespread issue with Coleman products, they'll be better motivated to address the issue.
I did manage to contact someone at Coleman who was very helpful. He immediately understood what I was talking about and took the matter to their QC department. If they can deal with the issue, it'll ease my problems a fair bit.
