This method, I used with my gauge also. You will need a decent size crescent wrench, since the Gauge itself is 1'' inch in diameter.

Please keep in mind if you over-tighten it already with a wrench and it leaks. Open it up and inspect the rubber black washer that goes inside the needle valve nut, before you go and try my method. If that rubber black washer is anyhow "damage" it will result in a defective unit.
Yeah, im not having any problems with leaking, just a floating valve, thats it.
