Try wrapping some painters tape around the bottom, adds some additional grip

If you have to....take it off and have someone hold it while you loosen the can. I had to do that on another member's catch can that we couldn't loosen.

You can get a much better grip for strength with it off the jeep.

Wrap a cloth/old t-shirt around the can and get some channel locks on it.

Speaking of this I need to check mine. Went to do it the other day at the gas station but it wouldn't budge. Just bare handed though. Normally I have rubber coated gloves on for removal and install. It's normally hot when I'm looking at it.

Try setting your purse down. :D














You might have to take the whole mount off and get some one to hold it some time they can be a PITA.
