    I don't know about the Saito, because I haven't done anything meaningful with mine yet, but the old RCS singles had a similar plug cap, and the SOP was to put a hose clamp on it out of the box...

    Yeah, my first thought was to stick with natural metal, but this is aluminum and isn't the real one stainless or maybe even just plain steel?
