I have been using THIS snap ring with my sanke. But it seems to be a bit too thick and does not fit far in between spear and lip of the sanke.

I can't find a thinner version of this ring. They sometimes pop off under pressure. Any suggestions?

on Deck: Lager?

Have you tried grinding one down a little thinner?

My advice wouldbe to use the spiral ring that is specifically designed for your sanke...with a little practice, a pair of plyers and a small screwdriver you will be able to remove/install w/ ease.

btw....a thinner snap ring will not compress the oring as it should be...that is why the original sanke uses a spiral compresses the seal during installation.
