- remove wine stainless steel tube that goes into the bottles - it should just pull out from the bottom of the assembly
- trim the stretched tubing with scissors and push deeply into the hose fitting which reconnects the nitrogen supply
- slide stainless wine tube into bottom of stopper assembly. trim off the stretched end of the wine tube and insert deeply into the gray fitting
