Stihl chainsaw bar oil cap

Stihl funny oil cap trick
The only thing I don't like about our
Stihl MS-211 chainsaw is the bar oil cap.

It has a funny final click that if you don't get right will seem like it's closed but may open up without you noticing.

I've found it's important to take note of how the cap comes off and put it back on in that same position before tightening.

Thanks for the post-i thought i had a defective oil cap on my ms250 until i read your post-same happening on mine-is it a design flaw or just me being unaware? I've never read the booklet that came with it to see if it mentions this....
