Sealing with Teflon Tape

As a general rule, if you use Teflon Tape to seal a threaded union, roll the tape clockwise on the thread, that way when the parts are threaded together, the tape will not come undone.

In applications with inverted threads, ie. gas lines, roll the tape counterclockwise.

If you have doubts, consult a professional
