I'd like to mention that, you should put a tiny drop of hot glue on the outside of the Lens Cover where it meets the display to hold the cover from popping off. Use Hot Glue so it can be easily removed in case it ever needs to be removed again.

The first one I did I used a general type adhesive but after a day or two the fumes from the glue clouded up the inside of the Lens and left a white chalky coating on the inside of the Lens and the face of the display. Had to open it up again and was able to wipe the chalky crap off w/ a damp cloth.

iam9i6finest on YouTube wants to know:
My pin on my zmax is loose? what should I do??

Answer:
The center pin insulator is worn or damaged. Replace it before it shorts out and damages the circuit board. Buy a 510 connector insulator for installation in the zmax. Remove the cap and unsolder the wire to the pin. Pull out pin and insulator, lube new insulator first and push in to the connector. Pull wire thru insulator, solder to pin and then push the pin into the insulator. Replace cap

You can purchase (4) insulators for $1.49 from --> Avid Vaper

I can't seem to find a top cap replacement although the bottom cap is available.
You may be able to remove the cap and drill out the 510 connector and replace it with this:

Not sure if it'll fit, but it might?

This might also work?

You'll have to shop around, cuz there are many 510 ego caps available for a wide variety of devices.
