This gas seal washer helps guard against the cylinder coming loose. After tightening the cylinder, the gas seal washer creates a reverse pressure against the thread. The washer also helps to prevent the escape of gas during the inflation process. Cylinders should be checked regularly to make sure they are secure. It is possible for them to come lose in wear.
