    The DIN retainer (I think that's what this part is generally called) has loosened a couple of times on my HOG D1s as well. As I guess you know, avoid turning the reg itself when attaching the reg--hold the reg steady and turn only the plastic handwheel. Fortunately, I have a torque wrench to set the DIN retainer back to its proper tightness.

    Yeah, I try but I move the reg more than I know I should on my doubles :/ I'm doing it less now as I've mostly figured out what angle they need to be without fudging around with it too much.

    What is the correct torque setting? I'm guessing the HOG number is going to be very close if not identical to what Deep6 would recommend.

    The part you are needing to replace is a 90 Durometer, size 012 Viton O-ring. Enjoy!

    Best,

    Only if it's the same material and thread size.

    I have found a small amount of Loctite (threadlocker, not anything more heavy-duty!) on that thread very helpful on some of my regs to get good retention at the right torque.

    Just for the benefit of future readers of this thread.

    Actually, DGX sells the service kits for their DGX by Deep6 reg, that is not the service kit for the Deep 6 Signature. You can order Signature series service kits directly from us.
