grown up must also eat rice not just drink milk. use some sort of soft rubber material lay over the ring and turn with all your might. just remember to turn the right direction.

Bought this from Sears in Chicago, USA.

encountered such incidents b4 after shooting in the hot sun... Left it alone to cool down then try turning it bit by bit and it came out... Turn out that there were some specks of dirt on the thread.
Dun force turning it as you might damaged some stuffs..
