I have a Century header tank. Its the purple bling holder with a Hayes tank. The tank is quite loose in the holder. I would like to know what is a good way to make the tank secure in the holder. I am considering 5 min expoxi dots on either side of the holde on the back.


Thx for any help that is offered.

I wouldn't epoxy it in, but that is me. I would try some double sided tape on it that way you know you can get it off. Hate to tear the plastic trying to get it off the plastic. this way if you do need to take off the header tank you're ok.

I don't have mine held in at all. It is free to move back and forth a bit, and usually ends up pressed against the main tank. If I felt it needed to be secured better I'd use the double sided tape. That way I could remove in the future.

what I did was wrap tape around the back of the housing behind where the tankl would be. It built up the surface to tighten the tank and can't be seen .
