Rockler Mixing Mate® Paint Lid, Gallon Size - Stir, Pour, and Store!
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
