This isnt another one of those "Are Remotes Good" topics. I really messed up I think, After I got my 32*w / Slide Check I used it twice and it was great 100% fell in love with it then, The same day I put it on, Then I moved the slide forward and it like just starts spraying co2 everywhere I mean like Big radius. And the slide froze and then I had to wait to see that the little white tape in the crevices was ripped. Did I do something wrong or did I get a faulty remote.

Im worried I put it in wrong and blew a seal or something. Can someone help.

Most new remotes need to be prepped. Here's what you need to do. Using two wrenches, I like using two large adjustable jaw wrenches. Remove the quick disconnect from the slide check and set it aside. There's usually an O-ring or metal clip holding the slide on. If it's an O-ring use a pick to roll it off the edge of that smooth cylider and let it stay right there on those threads. If it's a metal clip remove it being careful to not let it fly off. Set it aside. OK, now just pull the slide off. Now, see those two tiny holes? Those two tiny holes are what cut the O-Rings. When those two tiny holes are drilled at the factory the drilling leaves a small burr or sharp edge on the hole. You need to use a small fine file or sandpaper to smooth those two holes out, making sure there's no burr or sharp edge. BE CAREFUL TO NOT REMOVE TOO MUCH MATERIAL OR CUT INTO THE METAL TOO MUCH, JUST SMOOTH OUT THE EDGES OF THE HOLES.Once you do that blow it off to remove any debris caused by the sanding. Now, look inside the round slide you pulled off. There's two O-rings inside the slide. They're usually exactly the same as regular tank valve O-rings available anywhere that sells paintball supplies. Using a pick pull them out and replace one or both if needed. Oil the O-rings and the smooth cylinder and push the slide back on. Now, replace the O-ring or metal clip that holds the slide on. Put some teflon tape on the threads and re-install the quick disconnect nice and tight. You're done. Look into the end of the quick disconnect and make sure the little O-ring is still in there too. Replace if needed. You can just pull it out with a pick and just poke a new one back into it's place. Now you know how to repair a slide check. Always oil the slide before each day of paintball. Keep extra O-rings,teflon tape, and the wrenches handy. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Whew thx. I can tell youve done this before.\

Ok, I got the slide off Finally after that little problem with the clip. Im just waiting on the orings tommoro and then I gotta pick up some fine sand paper. You werre right that little edge on the holes was wearing down the oring. ANd when its fixed it should work fine.

You're welcome. Remember always put a few drops of oil on the slide before each day of paintball. Keep the teflon tape, the wrenches, and some extra O-rings with you just in case. PM me if you have any more questions.
