Do not over-tighten the boiler cap as this will potentially damage the O-ring. The amount of force needed is equivalent to tightening the boiler cap by hand. If the unit is not hot, tightening by hand is more than adequate.
Rubbing a little cooking oil into the seal to help it slip is a good way to stop the seal from gripping the unit. This should help the seal last a lot longer. New boiler cap o-rings are available here.
