I personally would like flippy caps on every chainsaw. Best caps ever.

Been running them since they came out and have had none break or none ever dump gas or oil from not locking. That is in pro use. Al, its a simple cap, try to figure it out, its not hard. But, we get the high quality German made cap, not the cheap US ones. Just kidding Al.

I don't know if they are made in Germany or China . Many components are of Pacific rim origin .

Since this thread was started it came to my attention the failure of flippys was the fact the o-ring swelled up .

I had found the genaric size and put it on several sites .A bag of them sells for peanuts,cheap .I assume the ethanol in the gas causes the buna-n o-ring to loose elasticity  over time .

My 361 had some issues with the original gas cap, never dumped it but sometimes the thing would take 5 or more tries to get it. Then one day it just broke. Since replacing no issues at all. Got em on 3 Stihls.

I have flippy caps on a couple Stihls. Never any problem.

Sure had trouble with a lightly used Sthil 025. It dumped fuel on me #*^*. I tighten the old caps with the scrench.
