5 Gallon Bucket Spout Instructions
This 5-gallon bucket pour spout attachment comes pre-assembled with two threaded adapters. It can be disassembled to make it fit on three bucket types. Use whichever adapter fits on your bucket and set the other one aside. For plug type buckets that do not have a screw-on cap, remove both adapters and set them aside. Then push the pour spout into the paint bucket opening until it snaps into the hole.
The large black adapter fits on 2-3/4″ diameter threads, and the yellow threaded adapter fits on 2-1/2″ diameter threads. Thus to attach it to a bucket that has a threaded cap, first remove the original cap from the bucket by unscrewing it. Then screw the spout on the bucket threads by turning it clockwise until it is tight. But if the black adapter is too large, remove it from the yellow adapter by unscrewing it. Then attach the spout to the bucket by using the yellow threaded adapter instead.
For tint plug type paint buckets that do not have a threaded cap, do not use either adapter. To put the spout on this type of bucket, first remove the plug from the container. Then take the black adapter off of the yellow adapter by unscrewing it. Then remove the pouring spout from the yellow threaded adapter by gently prying it out. Next, push the spout into the bucket hole until it snaps into place. As a result, you now have a spouted bucket that saves gallons of paint over the lifetime of the pouring spout. No more wasted paint that gets poured everywhere except where you were aiming. When the bucket is tilted, the paint pours directly into the target container instead of flowing down the side of the bucket.
Additional Pour Spout Info
Our durable bucket pourer spout is made of heavy-duty polypropylene and will last for years. In addition, it can be used with all water-based, latex, or oil-based paints. After using the pour spout for water-based or latex paint, just clean it with soap and water. For oil-based paint, clean the pour spout with mineral spirits (do not use turpentine). Further, make sure that no paint is on the spout or the bucket adapters after you clean them. Model #30669-00778.
Pouring paint or other liquids from a plastic five-gallon bucket is easy when you attach a pour spout. This also prevents painted labels on the side of the pail that can no longer be seen. In addition, if you need a snap-on pour spout for a round quart or one-gallon paint can, check out our paint can pour spouts.
For pouring paint thinner, solvents, or other liquids from rectangular one-gallon metal cans, just attach this snap-on gallon can pour spout to the can opening.
