What are you having trouble with? Just be sure a seal is in place before you connect. They typically come with a plastic washer.
He is referring to this washer you should replace it every time you change tanks or remove the regulator.http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/co2- ... asher.html
You could also use a more permanent item.

I most definitely prefer these to the washers.

When you get your tank filled, ask to buy some washers. The guy at my fire extinguisher shop gave me 3-4 of them when I asked.
If NB is selling them for $.15, they probably cost $.01 when ordered by the 100’s.
Taprite regulators come with a built-in o-ring. A washer is not needed.
OP - to double check this, just look on the regulator in the part that screws onto the tank. If you see a black o-ring, you’re good to go.
