13 ci Cover

For those that use, or have used, a 13ci tank, what did you do to protect it?

There was a guy on here a while back that made really cool chainmail tank covers. He made this one for me for my 13/3000 tank



I also have one for one of my 3.5 oz CO2 tanks as well.

I've always hated that it's so uncomfortably short so I was looking for a cover that extended it quite a bit. I ended up using a container from a paint brush set I had laying around. It fits so great that it takes some effort to take off. I wrapped it in duct tape and threw the bottom of a pod on the end. It also allows me to extend it to whatever length I need.

I just use a tennis ball on the back, but if you are looking for a cover, use a 12 oz beer bottle koozie, here they are in Camouflage

Twelve ounce beer bottle koozies work. The ones with rubber bottoms can stretch a bit. I like having a tennis or lacrosse ball at the end then putting the cover over. BeniotOwn made a 10 round tube cover called the Bomb that is pretty cool.

It measures just under 12 1/2" at it's lowest part. The 22 measures at 13" so I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea
