Neither can I. I even had hubby get his big boy tools out and help me. I called the company and I am sending it back to them for a replacement!

both times I've tried I had to just hand it to my hubby to do it!! It's tricky one part tends to spin you have to hold that still while twisting the part off. I messed with it for 20+ minutes then my hubby did and he eventually got it to switch. Which reminds me I sent one in for repair and i need to follow up on my repair!!

Yeah sounds like a PITA, I might just chalk it up to a hard lesson learned!

isn't there a tool that came with it? I'm too lazy to get up out of my recliner and go downstairs to look in my glue gun case. Heavens, I'd actually have to move my laptop out of my lap! Seriously...isn't there a tool...a little wrench?

There is, but they have you hold the one part with the stand then use the little tool. That is a huge joke. Then I had hubby hold it steady while I tried to turn, no luck. It is to hard to change tips, not worth it IMO!

I've had mine for over two years...I remember changing the nozzle and I've left the skinniest one on all this time because that's what I need (of course, I wish I was skinny, too.) Since it's been so long, I don't remember if I had trouble or not.

poor thing has been used and abused, left on all night, dropped on the floor, hit with the woodburner but still a workhorse

i've had the same problem. i learned the first time around when it took me forever to figure it out.
i have two of those guns, so i use both of those wrench things. use one to hold one part in place and then use the other to turn the piece in front in the opposite direction. hope that makes sense. and if you don't have two, then just use a regular wrench in the right size. i've done that too.

good luck!
