Pour Spout Lids with their screw tops attach securely to almost any quart paint can, but we love to use them on our Chalk Paint® quarts. It works perfectly when we just want to pour out a bit when mixing colors, or setting some out to thicken for a texture technique. These lids are completely reusable too. Once done just remove them and rinse them off with hot water and they will be ready for the next can.
The opening has a 2.5 inch hole for dipping your brush. Keep this in mind if using a BIG brush.
The first time you use them you may want to soak them in hot water to soften them a bit OR use your hairdryer to warm them up. It will make the plastic more malleable to stretch and place on your paint can. Start at either the tab side, or the opposite of the tab side and push down with both thumbs moving along the edge of the rim pressing down firmly all the way around until you hear the snap. The lid is secure. Save your metal cover lid though! You do not want to remove the plastic lid once on. And in case you do and have difficulty replacing it- you have your metal lid as a back up! If your paint can has built up paint on the rim, you'll need to remove that first to get a good connection for the Pour Spout Lid.
