Hello I would suggest calling the manufacturer listed on the can and see if they have any hacks or tips. Due to the item being pressurized safety is important you wouldn’t want anything to leak in the wrong direction causing a medical emergency.
Hi Erica, Unfortunately with spray cans if the nozzle breaks off they are very hard to use. If you still have the tip, you can try holding it in place and push down on the stalk that goes into the can. If you are able to hold it and push you will get some out. I would put a pair of gloves on though as it will be a bit messing and may drip since it will not be a tight seal anymore.
You can try clearing the actual tip and put a nozzle from another can on it.
Hi Erica, I don't have experience with sealants in spray cans but I do know that spray paints act really strange once the can is broken open and are basically unusable to a certain extent. You can always try to get it open but be very careful as there is a lot of pressure built up in cans.
Since the tip broke not much you can do. I don't advise this....but for a quick job I would glue the broken tip on the can with super glue. Then put gobs of hot glue around the tip seam. A lot of hot glue. It may or not work. Taking a chance. Then I would throw it out after the "quick" job.
I'd suggest you take it back to the store where you purchased it. Big stores such as Home Depot stand behind their products and you will likely be able to get a new can to use.
Best option may be to throw it away and buy another can if you don't have a nozzle from another product that will fit.
After using spray paint, put nozzle on a can of brake cleaner and spray cleaner to clear the nozzle.
Caulking tubes. Insert a long screw into the end and close the tip with masking tape.
If you want to do a tidy job, then you may need to buy another one. Once the tip is gone, its done.. Sorry..
I would try to get it exchanged. I don't even think you could put another similar tip on it.
I seriously had to rig it with my handy dandy pocket knife I couldn't get it to come out the same it's just came out all at once so I just placed it on a paper plate and used my finger to get the job done. My dad was super impressed I didn't have to call him for help. Thank u everyone for the feedback!!!
you could take a cap off another can and tried to see if it would work
Clean and swap out the nozzle with a similar nozzle, it might take some trial and error to do this, depends on the manufacturer.
The idea of using something like that freaks me out I just got done watching fail videos on utube.
When in doubt throw it out (cause if can go wrong for me it does).
Could you let it off and put a cap for the new one on?
If you do not have another nozzle from another spray can. I would take it back to the hardware store. They should exchange it for you. I had a hard time with some texture spray and they took it back 3 times until the darn nozzle would not leak all over my hands instead of spraying on the wall.
Hi Erica, you can try to put another nozzle on it from another can, then make sure you clean it by holding the can upside down to clear it, then put it back on the other can
Use one from another spray can.
Try replacing the tip with another nozzle if you have one. Otherwise, you can try cleaning out the tip and hopefully can use it again.
You can interchange them if you have another can with the same size.
Try swapping with another spray can n
