I need help. The barrel of my Nemosine Singularity is screwed on so tight I can't get it to budge. I've tried putting it under cold water, cold water and soap, paper towels, Clorox wipes, and even a little rubber shaped hand that we use to open jars. Nothing is helping this time so it is sitting in my drawer. I would like to change the cartridge eventually. At least cartridge is still full despite not in use for 1-3 months!

You could try some heat.  Perhaps from a hair dryer.

Try using the rubber grip of some pliers.


If not, use a rubber kitchen glove.

And don't do it again. Nemo caps are notorious for cracking.
