Is it possible to over-tighten stoves to gas canisters?
The short answer is yes. It is possible to over-tighten stoves which can damage the valve on the canister. This will stop gas coming out or could possibly make it leak. Different stoves will need a different amount of tightening but generally screwing it up until it feels secure is all that is needed. For example, with BruKits we advise screwing the burner onto a canister by four full rotations. In general though, if you're straining then its too tight.
