I might have to do that to some of mine, but those tops can be a pain in the ass to remove. LEON.

Yep! I have a handful without lids I can work on but I have others with the tops so I’ll have to cross that bridge eventually.

Here is my 2nd seltzer attempt. G A DUERLER MFG CO San Antonio Texas. I only have a couple more seltzers without tops so im going to have to figure how to safely remove the tops without damaging them…I know there is a special tool but I haven’t been able to find one.

Please let us know if you find that tool. I have a top that needs to come off too.

To remove most seltzer tops you have to hold the base ring securely and unscrew the top. I used "vice grips" to hold the base ring and twisted off the top by hand. Just make sure you apply pressure to the spout and not the trigger. You can wrap tape around the vice grip jaws to reduce marks on the ring. You can apply some type of penetrating oil to the threads if you can't get it to break loose the first time.
