I have broken more fingernails (at $25 a manicure) trying to open the spackle container. Is there any way your team of highly educated packaging engineers could come up with an easier way to open the container?
Asked by: trdryspackler
One of two ways depending on the lid. If lid has slots in it, like a joint compound bucket, cut the slots all the way to top of recess. There is a 5 in 1 painters tool with a lid removal hook. If there are no slots, there is an angled part on the lid. Cut the angled part vertically to the top of the angle and use pliers to tear off the angled part. You do not need that strip to re-seal the container

Doesn't dried up?

This product remains pink and is taking a long time to dry. It has already been 2 days after application and does not change to white or harden.
Asked by: Tony
That's not right maybe you got a bad bucket of it. When I have used it I haven't had any problems, it turns from pink to white and dries in about an hour for me. Take it back and get a different bucket.

If used to fill cracks or holes, then sand the area, can you tell after painting where this spackling has been used?

Just bought a home and will be using this to fill cracks and holes. We plan to buy a paint that has primer in it, and was going to go with a lighter color.
Asked by: Nicole
NOT IF YOU SAND CORRECTLY LIKE ANY SPACKLE IF LEFT ALL CLUMPED UP AND ABOVE THE PAINTS SURFACE YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO TELL BUT IF SPACKLED AND SANDED CORRECTLY THAN NO YOU WILL NOT SEE THE SPACKLE YOUR SUPPOSED TO SAND DOWN TO THE SURROUNDING WALL SO THAT NOTHING IS A TELL THE SPACKLE IF DRIED COMPLETELY I WOULD WAIT 24 HOURS BEFORE SANDING SHOULD STAY IN THE CRACKS AND HOLES AFTER YOU SANDED MULTIPLE PATCHING AND SANDING MAY BE REQUIRED DEPENDING HOW MUCH SPACKLE YOUR USING AND HOW BIG THE HOLE IS.

DryDex 16 oz. Dry Time Indicator Spackling Paste is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make sure lid is on TIGHT I've used DryDex successfully without a hitch ~ EXCEPT that inside the lid can easily get clogged with the product making snapping it back on a real pain. This causes it to dry out and become useless. Why not make it a "screw on"?!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DAP DryDex does NOT deliver once again! Bought a small jar for small holes and this worked fine. Decided to get larger tub for a bit larger job filing in around tape from builder on top of paint. Did not stick to clean wall with fresh paint. Also, will not dry and as I was sanding it, accidentally hit areas with corner of sanding block and put a large gouge in the repair made. It is white and has been drying for over 24 hours yet does not act like it is dry. Would've been much better off using another product. No good for anything larger than a small thumb tack hole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEVER BUY THIS SPACKLING COMPOUND I STUPIDLY BOUGHT 3 LARGE TUBS OF THIS PRODUCT BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE DRYING INDICATOR WOULD BE HELPFUL. I MIXED IT THOROUGHLY, AND FOLLOWED ALL DIRECTIONS. I BEGAN TO APPLY IT TO SEVERAL DRYWALL PATCHES. THE PRODUCT WAS TOO THICK FOR PROPER APPLICATION (SEVERAL COATS OF 1/4" DEPTH AFTER EACH LAYER DRIED), AND WENT ON WITH SEVERAL AREAS THAT IMMEDIATELY PEELED OFF OF THE DRYWALL AND FELL TO THE FLOOR. IT IS TOO THICK TO ATTEMPT TO SMOOTH AFTER YOU HAVE SPREAD IT ON. IF YOU ATTEMPT TO FILL AND SMOOTH OUT HOLES LEFT BY COMPOUND THAT FELL OFF, YOU WILL END UP WITH A ROUGH, LUMPY SURFACE. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT TRYING TO WORK THIS PRODUCT FOR SEVERAL MINUTES, I'M TALKING ABOUT APPLICATION AND TRYING TO DRAW IT SMOOTH ON RELATIVELY SMALL AREAS IN ABOUT 15 SECONDS. IRONICALLY, AFTER ALL THAT, IT TAKES FOREVER TO DRY HARD. ALSO IRONICALLY, DAP MAKES A SPACKLING COMPOUND CALLED " CRACKSHOT HIGH PERFORMANCE SPACKLING" THAT IS LIGHTER WEIGHT AND WORKABLE. IT ALSO DRIES MUCH FASTER. AFTER MY BAD EXPERIENCE WITH DRYDEX, I BOUGHT THE CRACKSHOT AND HAVE SEEN VERY GOOD RESULTS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from leaves finished product with gator skin Goes on nice and pink, dries white, sands nicely, but a few hours or days after painting the product will curl and give a rough gator skin texture to the project.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Primer Peeled Spackle Patch Off The Ceiling Attempted to patch a crack in the ceiling. I've done this many times before in different locations using other products. Prepped the area, patched, dried, feathered & sanded smooth. Applied a primer that I've used may times before... Parts of the patch pulled away from the ceiling, other areas became rough like the primer dissolved the spackle. I removed most of the patch via scraping & sanding. Prepped again with course sandpaper and tried again. Same result. Completely removed the patch. Went to my 10 year old pail of drywall joint compound and patched, dried, feathered & sanded smooth. Applied the primer... no problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contractor unapproved!!! This product is awful! I am a General Contractor and I have given this product its last shot! This product has never given good results. Drys fast only when spread super thin and even when it turns white, it is still soft to the touch and can't be sanded. This product forms bubbles when drying and even after sanding, when you begin to roll paint across the patched area, the roller pulls off the surface of where the bubbles were! This is a terrible product and I won't waste anymore of my money on it again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not too sure about this I tried this on a recommendation from a friend. I had to patch a 12" x 8" area of drywall. When this turns white it still seems to be soft and flaky even after 12 hours of drying time. I have one more coat to apply but I fear that I may have made a mistake selecting this product. I used in it some small holes in the walls a couple of days ago and it seems ok ... but for this larger area not so sure.

Now only does it crack, It didn't even hold after two days. It was still like puddy and I was able to just scrap it off the wall with no effort Better off using all purpose joint compound.
