Default Spyder CO2 Tanks

I have a 20 OZ Spyder brand CO2 tank. I'm trying to instal and Anti-Syphon Tube into the tank and can't get the valve off. I viced gripped it down and turned using an adjustable wrench. All i'm doing is scratching the valve.

Have any of you guys tryed to instal and Anti-Syphon tube into a Spyder brand tank. If so is there a trick to it?

I just had a really really tight grip in the tank & used an open wrench. Ive heard you can add a little heat but I wouldnt try it.

FYI~ I was able to get the anti-syphon tube in. I heated the tank slightly, (felt warm to touch) clamped the tank down and used my weight to turn it... came off like a charm

how hot did you heat it? because my PMI tanks says that if you heat it past 250 degrees, you need to get it retested.
