Do you have a picture of the whole tank? Maybe the manufacturer's website? There should be some kind of instructions on the website, I would imagine.

Subject: [FH] HELP! Oxygen tanks don't have levers
ARGH! I do not believe this! I just noticed (fortunately *before*
another crisis begins) that these tanks I got yesterday do not have
handles to turn on the oxygen flow! I posted a picture on Twitter:
I called the company that I got them from, but it's closed for the
weekend. I called the veterinary ER and asked, if I bring over one of
the tanks, could someone there show me how to turn it on. They said
no, for liability reasons.
My first tank, the one I swapped yesterday for one of these full ones,
had a lever-type handle to turn the flow on and off. Is there some
technique I am not aware of, for turning the O2 on and off without
that handle? Will I break anything if I use a wrench or vise grip on
