Hi there, dear friends 😀
I use WD40 frequently at home to lubricate my auto-gate hinges, door and window hinges, padlocks, door knobs, drawer rollers, etc…but I always hate it whenever the thin red tube falls off in the middle of the spraying job and it can get difficult to stick the oily tube back into its place ! **rolling eyes**
…or whenever I need the WD40, I can’t find the tiny, red tube anywhere nearby!
So, I tried tying the tube to the canister with a rubber band so that I don’t lose it…but over time, the rubber band would get warped and break, and the tube would drop off somewhere…again.
I also tried taping the tube, but because the tube gets oily over time, it wouldn’t stay glued …and off it goes missing…… again!
..and then there are those times when the spray can tube was bent awkwardly into some little nook and cranny to lubricate some hard to reach areas…the tube fell off and I couldn’t retrieve it! Aaarrghh !!
One day, a little light bulb went off in my head and I got an idea to use a little Dunlop glue to stick the red tube firmly in place with the nozzle. Ah, you should see see me beaming with pride and happiness then … I immediately went all over the house to spray WD40 onto any hinges I could see to test if the spray tube would hold properly in place and that the lubricant could be sprayed out with ease ===> yes, that glue certainly did the trick! Eureka!
Oh, I have also bought before a can of WD40 that came with a permanent nozzle spray tube that won’t ever go missing but it was too expensive – almost double the price of a conventional canister of WD40 with a separate spray tube.
So, now I am worry-free, knowing that I will never ever lose my WD40 red tube again! LOL!
With best wishes,
