Glue is notoriously messy, but only if it winds up where it doesn't belong. Rockler's glue reservoir keeps it where it belongs: in the container, on the brush, or on your project. It does this with several clever design features. First, the lid doubles as a cradle for your glue brushes. Flip it over and attach it to the base so it's half-open, then set your brush in the cradle so excess glue drips back into the container. You can also set the lid onto the bench and prop your brush over it so drips fall into the inverted lid. The bottom of the reservoir is sloped to keep the glue pooled, and the corners are rounded so glue doesn't get trapped. When you're done, the lid seals tightly enough for short-term storage. Cleanup is quick—wet glue pours cleanly back into the bottle, and dried glue peels right off.

 Features:

  • Perfectly sized for  easy handling and a range of gluing tasks
  • Features a lid that seals for short-term storage
  • As with all Rockler silicone glue tools, cleanup is easy—wet glue washes away and dried glue peels right off
  • Curved notches on underside of lid serve as glue brush holders, and molded profile on other side locks onto box half-open or fully closed
  • Slight taper and curved bottom in reservoir keeps glue pooled for easy brush loading
  • When flipped, underside of lid can hold dabs of glue for small jobs
  • Reservoir holds about 2 oz. of glue

Will be buying more of these!
I love these. They work way better than any other dispenser for me. It seals and preserve the glue better. Than bottles in my work environment. The grooves on top hold soldering brushes that I spread glue with

I love this thing!
I am a crafter -- no wood other than balsa but I love this thing! I wish more crafters knew about Rocker gluing tools! I have this and the other glue applicators with the silicone tips. They all work great together and I'm glad I stumbled upon them!

Very clever and convenient
I have the Rockler silicone glue tray, which is great for most projects but the glue keeper is great for keeping the glue from drying out between applying the glue and then clamping or screwing my projects. The lid which also doubles as a brush holder is also very thoughtful. This even works well with epoxy.

I wanted a way to store glue, for short periods of time without having to keep squeezing the glue from the bottle. Not sure but I thought I would give this a try.

jim p on Feb 3, 2020
Great way to control brush drips and when finished for the day that extra glue gets saved in the keeper with the lid sealing it until tomorrows work.

ted w on Feb 19, 2020
Can you put glue in this and it wont dry out...in other words can you leave the glue in it just like you would a glue bottle?
jeffrey on Feb 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I put glue in it about a month ago and it hasn’t dried out yet. That said, I think it will eventually. Better for short term storage
What are the demensions?
Gene E on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The box is 2.5 inches square, 1.5 inches tall without lid. Or 6.4 cm square, 3.7 tall without lid. Lid adds about a 1/4 inch. overall a nice size and works well
What size is the container ?
sergio c on Jan 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I didn’t measure exactly but I think it’s about 2” x 2”. It isn’t very big, so I have to refill it everyday. But that also keeps glue waste to a minimum
What are the outside dimensions? Does the lid snap or fasten securely? I plan to keep this in my tool case for use in the field and the case may be in any possible position during transit.
Rock K on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Outside dimensions 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” x 1-3/4 tall. Inside dimensions 2-1/8” x 2-1/8” x 1-1/4” (note the bottom is somewhat curved so there is a loss of space in the bottom 3/16” due to curved sides/bottom). Lid does not “snap” in place but it’s a fairly tight friction fit and, in fact, can be a bit difficult to open. I don’t think I would hesitate to carry in tool box as you describe so long as I wasn’t carrying indelible ink sitting beside my white shirt and best/only suit. While tight, if I were transporting a liquid as thin as water (ink, alcohol, etc.) I would opt for something with a mechanical locking lid (e.g., screw lid, snap lid, etc.).
