FAQ – What will happen if I buy the wrong size?

The thickness of the gasket will determine the “lock-in” position of the portafilter handle.  Ideally you want the handle to lock in directly towards you (6 o’clock position).   If the gasket is too thin it will lock in too far. If the gasket is too thick it will not lock in enough.

 

Warning:

Please note that although the gaskets are strong under compression, you should never use a sharp tool like a screwdriver to install them. This may tear the gasket.
