Overview

The Mixing Mate® Paint Lid makes mixing and pouring paints and finishes as easy and mess-free as pouring syrup from a restaurant-style dispenser. Forget the lid opener, stir stick, punching holes in the rim with a nail and hammer, paint pouring down the side of the can, and trying to bang the lid back onto a gummed up rim without deforming it. The Mixing Mate® Paint Lid eliminates all of these problems.

Whether you're pouring paint into a tray, or stain and varnish into your paint gun, you'll appreciate the easy, drip-free action offered by the Mixing Mate®. Simply crank the handle, press the thumb lever and pour. No drips, no mess, no wasted finish. The auger-style mixing paddle lifts pigments from the bottom of the can, doing in seconds what would take minutes with a messy, wasteful stir stick. And when you're done, simply set the can back on the shelf for storage. Also available from Rockler, the Mixing Mate® Quart Size Paint Lid.

  • Pistol grip handle makes pouring paint easy and ergonomic.
  • Tool-free cam clamps securely anchor the Mixing Mate® Paint Lid to any standard gallon size paint canister - simply twist to secure.
  • Spring-loaded spout seals tightly after each pour - set it on the shelf and you're done until next time.
  • Lid gasket ensures a tight, leak-proof seal to the paint or finishing can.
  • The Mixing Mate® Paint Lid is constructed of non-metal components, making it completely compatible with water-borne finishes and latex paints, as well as solvent-based finishes.
  • A few seconds of cranking the paddle mixes finishes much more thoroughly than minutes of mixing with a stir stick.
  • Auger-shaped paddle lifts and mixes solids and pigments that have settled on the bottom of the canister for a more even-toned finish.
  • If you want to switch the Mixing Mate® to a different can, the Mixing Mate's paddle, handle and lid separate for easy cleaning.
  • Fits any standard one-gallon can of paint, stain or varnish.

Will never paint without it!

Susan Posted August 23, 2014
I really love this smartly designed tool. It eliminates what I consider to be the messiest part of painting - pouring out the paint and putting the lid back on. I used it when I was painting baseboard trim a few boards at a time. It didn't seem like such a job to get started each time when I knew it would be so quick and easy to pour out what I needed into a paint cup and go.

Great asset to painting

I am finishing up some trim outside and need to be able to pour small amounts of paint from a gallon can. The paint had also settled and needed a very good mixing. I put one of these things on the can, adjusted the paddle depth to be just off the bottom and started stirring. After about 100 revolutions I tried the paint by pouring it into a small roller tray. The paint was perfectly mixed and the pour was dripless. It works as advertised. It is a little pricey, but it saves a lot of time and eliminates a lot of mess so I won't knock it for price. I will definitely buy a quart sized one and probably another gallon sized for when I am using two colors on a project.

Love this thing!

I have tried various gadgets to make it easier to pour paint and reduce the drips, etc., and none of them can touch this thing. I bought one to try it and liked it so much, I bought two more for an apartment that we are repainting. The lid seals tightly, and the no drip pour function is absolutely the best. It is easy to pour out just a little and not have to worry about drips down the side, or spills. Using this, my cans all look brand new and there is no paint hiding what the can contains. I have not had to clean one yet but I still recommend this product without reservation.
