Lid of dome isn't even

My lid isn't perfectly even anymore, it sits a couple of centimeters to the back. I still have a good seal, but feel it should perfectly match up. Shoul I be concerned?

    The key is the seal/dollar bill test-if that's fine then don't worry about the alignment although your post implies that it was once "perfectly even".  If things have moved-check the tightness of your bands-no need for a humpty-dumpty experience!

  • A couple of centimeters sounds like a fair amount. I'd try to realign it if I was you. try adjusting the upper band first.
