The nipple is the part that goes through the cooler wall. You will need a shorter one or use additional washers as spacers.

You have a couple options. You can get a new, shorter nipple. How far are you from getting it to tighten? If you're 1/2" away, get a 1/2" shorter nipple. If you're close to getting tight enough by like 1/4", you can get yourself a bunch of washers to built up on the outside of the cooler. They can be plain old steel.

edit: Dang, too late.
