Need piping to avoid nuisance LWCO

My LWCO is nuisance-ing me so I'm looking for a smarter way to pipe it. I don't have a cross, which @Mark Eatherton suggested on this closed discussion https://forum.heatinghelp.com/discussion/comment/1175841#Comment_1175841, available in a timely manner, but later in that same thread, @Nathan attached an "I don't have a cross" piping option but that attachment is missing. Can someone describe the other option?

My LWCO is piped into a tee under the relief valve, and I'm certain it is functioning properly because I woke to zero PSI in my system and a LWCO lockout.

Thanks
David
DIY'er ... ripped out a perfectly good forced-air furnace and replaced it with hot water & radiators.

    Never mind. I’m just going to use another tee and put a vent in the top.

    PS no I haven’t been drinking.

    That should work. I would suggest using a long nipple with the vent on top. It will allow a space for air to collect
