Stanley backpack sprayer top is stuck....... how do I get it off?
Seems a bit extreme to consider using the 12 gauge. I've found that a .22 works quite well. (Humour)
Hint! Pressurized tanks must have the pressure relieved BEFORE the lid can be removed.
If the lid has been over tightened or has stuck, you'll need to get more leverage to unscrew it. Sometimes a rag wrapped around it is all it takes.
You can also try pouring hot water over the cap. Lay the tank flat so the rim of the cap gets the heat. Wrap an old towel around it first so it gets a good hot soak.
Should come off without the artillery.

I need a new rubber
Drive out to the country side and look for a ACE or TrueValue hardware store. Bring your sprayer with you. They will likely have the right part for you in stock.

How do I get the top off? STUCK!
It is usually easiest to rest the weight on the tailgate of a pickup truck (or some other device) and then slip out of the harness.
Another technique is to lift bend forward while at the same time rising one shoulder and lowering the other. That will create "slack" on the low shoulder side allowing you to get that arm out.
