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.

Fantastic Idea

Harry Posted December 11, 2014
I am on my 4th Mixing Mate and plan on more. It is so nice not to have to worry about how to mix the paint and how to clean up after pouring out some paint. I have a 1 gallon version that keeps one of my gallons of paint ready to use and It has been in place for over a year with no problem. I now have 3 quart sizes and absolutely love them. The are wonderful when painting smaller areas and using a roller. I only fill up the roller tray as needed and can be assured that it is freshly stirred and ready to dispense only what I need when I need it. No more worrying about the seal on the old paint cans. Well worth the investment.

Chalkboard paints

Mitch Posted November 23, 2014
I build and sell Barnwood framed chalkboards- hundreds of 'em- and paint the boards with a small roller, using from a small amount of a quart of chalkboard paint to a whole can in a session. This dispenser meters out just enough paint (with practice) to do each board, and it is easy to store the rest. When I am done with a can, I put the agitator on a fresh can of paint, saving myself the trouble of washing it up. Occasionally, I stop and wash everything up, carefully taking the spring mechanism off to release the sliding gate to clean it thoroughly.
Time to buy another one. I'll figure out a good use for it!

Outstanding

Michael Posted November 1, 2014
I now have 3 of these units. I make small jewelry boxes and crafts so I don't use the same sprays for all projects. So I have one for sealer and now one for Gloss and Satin. They may sit for weeks between uses. A few spins and it's ready to go. Might even get a forth.
