Can't open Liquid Nails tube

Can't open Liquid Nails tube

How can I stop this from happening?

Bought this last week and I have only used a couple of times. Now the cap is glued shut even though there is plenty left in the tube.

Re: Can't open liquid nails.

Hi @Cider


I feel your frustration as this has happened to me several times as well. You'll need to use a Craftright 250mm Multigrip Plier, to twist that cap off. I recommend cleaning the screw threads of the tube and putting on some cling wrap before putting the cap back on. The cling wrap acts as a buffer between the cap and the glue. Next time you need to use it, the cap should twist off without effort.


If you need further assistance, please let us know.

Re: Can't open liquid nails.

As per Eric.

But I usually put the cap in a wood vice - and go for it.
