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® Gallon 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 quart 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-quart can of paint, stain or varnish.

This is a very convenient product to use. Mixes the paint quickly, pours it out without any mess, and stores the paint between coats. I found no faults with it.

Why didn't I think of that...

Innovative product. Really, really useful with varnish. If it takes you a while to get through a can of varnish, this is for you. Plus simplifies only pouring what you immediately need and ensures a good mix each time. Buying another one and suspect before long will have 3-4 in use on various finishes.

I bought the Quart Size and...

I bought the Quart Size and will buy the Gallon Size. This product is very well designed and was a pleasant surprise. The surprise is not that it works great: Rockler has always been good at spotting innovative products with superior design and functionalities! Product descriptions and videos are usually very informative and I found user reviews to be truthful and genuine. No, the surprise is that the packaging read "Made in France". I happen to be French and I still have most of my relatives there. /p>
