Default Bent dip tube flange

I thought kegging was supposed to be less hassle...Been having keg issues lately, first it was a dreaded slow CO2 leak. Most recently I was having issues with my pin lock liquid connection going on...couldn't get it down far enough to lock into place. Tried taking it off and reseating...ya PSA don't screw down hard until you are positive your 3 footed poppet is correctly in place - destroyed the poppet feet and bent the flange on my liquid dip tube down in 3 places (from the feet).

Anyone know the best way to re-flatten the flange on my dip tube? Was thinking about putting it in an unused keg and and using a rubber mallet to tap it back into form...but dont want to F up the keg in any way.

I would do the same. Use a rubber mallet and it should be fine.
