So I noticed one of the preamp tube covers came off on my Rebel 30 (NGD thread coming soon) so I opened it up and have been trying to put it back on for the past 10 mins.

I decided to take the cover off of another pre-amp tube to investigate the sorcery underneath and I can't put that one on either.

I line the little inlets on the amp with the two things sticking out on the covers but I can't turn them.

Help?
I know, I'm stupid......

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

There are two little grooves on the shield. They line up with the two small protrusions on the base of the tube socket retainer. Line them up, push down and twist clockwise about 1/4". Done. You may not be pushing down far enough or lining the locators properly.

Do they have 0-rings on them? That can cause them to not want to turn

It was the O-rings. I took them off and it turned

Hold it by the top of the cover. Maybe you are squeezing it? They should go on very easily.

If you want to put the o-rings back on to stop them rattling smear a bit of petroleum jelly on them.
