Add a check valve. I use two NC 3 ways and hook EX from one to inlet of other. Now out port becomes EXhust when energized

As a follow up, I had a guy at a local machine shop make some pieces make some fittings to screw into my bottle and weld them in place for no leaks. Now I can screws my air fittings in place

Just came across these pics from when I used a CO2 tank a couple years ago. You can either cut, drill, and tap the existing tank adapter or remove and replace the adapter with the unit from GlowShift. If you decide to cut drill, and tap for 1/8-NPT, make sure to remove the adapter to disassemble the internal valve from the bottom of the adapter before drilling. I used a soft jaw on my vise and a rubber strap wrench to hold the tank while removing/installing the adapters.
