Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hsingmomto3 Useless other than to help pour
We used to have one of the yellow paint lids you could pour from, stir or use a paint brush until it broke recently. So we went in search of the replacement. This was the closest thing. One positive about it, it does pour easily. BUT if you dont wipe up the paint under the snap lid after each pour it will splatter! You can't use a paint brush with it, you can't pour paint back into the can, and you can't stir again without taking the lid off. Then you have to clean the lid before putting it back on. I'm hoping they bring back the other lid before our next painting project.

Bought this because I was tired of wiping down the paint can after pouring paint into my paint tray. Works great! No mess AND cleans super easy so I can switch it over to other paint cans when needed. You can leave this on the paint can for at least a couple of weeks with no issue. I have not kept it on a can any longer than that.
This also makes using a handheld paint sprayer so much better. Ever try pouring paint into a spray gun cup with a gallon can? It can get messy, even with the most cautious, patient pourers.
Have used with Behr, Benjamin Moore, Kilz, & Zinser and it fits all of those cans just fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CC I tried it on a goof. Turns out it WORKS WELL!
I put it on a can of latex enamel today so my wife could easily pour while she was painting trim. Not a single drip! The rim of the can was clean when I removed this, and the paint rinsed off easily. I may have to pick up another 10 or so in case they stop selling/making it. Try it. It's worth the three bucks easily. Most of the other gadgets on the shelf at HD are junk, but this thing actually works and keeps your cans clean too. Please note, it's a tight fit. It takes a little finesse to get it on, but it works!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John So much easier to pour paint
At first I wasn't sure if this was another gimmicky product or really useful. After buying three of them for some paint I was using, it's clear they're the real deal. Easy to snap on to the can, no strength needed. Pouring the paint is somewhat slow, due to the narrow spout, but for most jobs this works really well. I admittedly always get paint everywhere when pouring. This lid makes it 10x easier and cleaner.

These lids are not as good as the Acutainer yellow lids. Why don't you sell them any more???

On our second gallon of paint, the pour spout lid/lip is ripping off.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RobM Lid breaks off!
I used to purchase the yellow plastic lids. They are no longer sold and this is what's available.
I picked one of these up in the store, looked at the little cap on top and knew there would be an issue. I flipped open the lid and broke it right off. The rubber cap is attached by its own material in a flap style. you can see the material turn white as soon as you flex it. This will be an inherent problem and once it breaks off, you have no way of reattach inge it. this little cap will get lost quickly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MackenzieS Don't paint without it!!
This product is pure genius and just as important as a brush or roller when painting! Seals tight, no leaking, paint didn't get trapped in the grove around the lid and pours perfectly! Easy clean up even if paint is dried. We left these in place for a couple months until our addition project was done (we refilled gal poured from 5 gal) and when done replaced the regular lids for storage. They even come in quart size!
We were using latex paint but if it works half as good on solvent based its still worth it!
